Rated 1 out of 5Â by BBUSR It's like wearing a hair-shirt
I could tell you how lovely this sweater is, how stylish, how unique and how chic it is too. What I could NOT say, however, is that you'd be able to wear it for longer than a minute without wanting to tear it off. As any good Anthro customer, I read the reviews of products I'm interested in before committing to a purchase. I did the same with this one... as in, I read the ONE review and though, naaahhhhh... how itchy could it be? Nothing ever seems itchy to ME! Well, I don't know if it was the power of suggestion, but the SECOND after a put it on, I started to feel a rash coming on right around my collar bone and neck. It was dreadful. I thought, no, it can't be, so I moved away from the mirror to check on my other purchases but never made it to the box. I had to rip it off immediately and stared in disbelief and my reddened skin. So NO to this item. However... if Anthro were to recreate this beauty in cashmere I'd gladly pay full price. But this poly blend? No, no sales price is low enough to endure the dreadful ITCH!

This little cardigan is great- I love the idea of adding a little texture to outfits. It fits true to size and is a really unique design- however I cannot keep it because the material is just so itchy. It really irritated my skin. I would have to wear something under it that completely covered my arms to make it work. It is also a little shorter than I had thought it might be. Sad I can't keep it though, very cute.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mara0 Nice Cardigan
I got the size Small. 115 pounds, to help people with sizing. I read the reviews as well. I brought it home and wore it around the house for 30 minutes to see if it was itchy. It didn't bother me at all. I guess some people can wear this fabric and some can't Maybe allergies. You'll have to decide if you can't try it on first. It is a lovely cardigan, unique looking with the tufts. A little short but fine. Good quality, well made. Nice colour and true to colour. Great for cool days.
