Rated 1 out of 5Â by Kathleen too thick and tight.
I was really hoping to pair this as shown with the Sable Flocked Dress. But nope. It seemed to add 20 pounds to my upper half. (And let's just say I can't afford even 5 added pounds.) The wool is just so thick, and the arms are so tight, I found it incredibly unflattering. I went with the Alldays Marled Cardigan instead. Much better!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by PrettyinPink Heavy Fur Sweater
I love anything with fur on it so, of course this caught my attention. I tried in on instore and found that it was heavier wool than what I expected from seeing it online. It would be too hot to wear to work for me.
The wool was extremely itchy so this sweater is a no-go for me. I am sensitive to wool. I took my usual size medium and it was fine. I did not size up as the website suggested but it would be good to try it on in person. It is very cute on, though.

This is a really great cardigan...the color is great and the mix of gray and heathered brown go with so many things, the collar looks high quality, and it is very warm. Now for the drawbacks. I wore it to work all day today and was very hot for most of the day. It was slightly itchy for me. The sleeves will be tight on most people, and it will only stretch out around your joints (like your elbows or around your shoulders) throughout the day, and not much at that. The knit is very thick, so it did bulk up my frame a little. However, I found these problems to be pretty minor. If you can, try this on in the store with a cami and/or tight-fitting long sleeved shirt to see if it will fit your arms and if you can stand the itch. I bought the XS (5'2", 101 pounds, 32A-25-32. My arms are not stick thin, but I do have a very small frame).
