Â by JulesMilo not as soft as I had thought
I am on the hunt for long sleeved, substantial sweaters this winter. I'm tired of the thin, 3/4 sleeved "sweaters" that require more layers than necessary and I though this could have the potential of coming home with me. Until I tried it on. Like the previous reviewer, it did not pass the cuddle-up-with-a-cup-of-hot-chocolate test so back to the rack it went. :(
On the plus side, the detail is unique regarding the many different types of materials used to make the design. Some of the strands are actually quite soft but not enough to classify this as a soft sweater.
For reference, I'm 5'5", 100lbs, 25 in jeans and I tried on an XS.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by RIHoo Feels like an acrylic sweater
I saw this in the catalog and had to have it. Ever since J. Crew stopped making their Fair Isle sweaters, I've been on a mission to find a good one, and thought "this is it"! It arrived in the mail today and I was so excited. Unfortunately, I apparently didn't read the description well. It's not a warm, cozy wool-blended sweater. It's flimsy and feels like it was make of acrylic. The fit is good - I got a medium (usually a size 6 in dresses, and waver between S/M in Anthro brands; 34D bust), and that worked well. However, I don't love it, and in this economy you can't justify buying something you don't love.

Â by Pink5007 Adorable Sweater, Great Price!
I just purchased this sweater. I am 119, 5'5, and the small fit with a camisole underneath. The orange blend is beautiful in person and is more coral. I personally think it looks ugly in this picture and was not willing to spend the original price (it's not a heavy sweater), but now that it's 20 dollars, it's totally worth it! Pretty sweater, you won't be disappointed at 20 dollars!
