Rated 5 out of 5┬áby jewelsx82 Sooo soft
I have vowed to only buy cotton sweaters after spending way too much on sweaters that pill after wearing once or twice and not being able to wash them easily. When I received this today I couldn't believe how soft it is. I checked the tag and description on Anthro again because I couldn't believe it. So comfortable and cozy, I just wish it had long sleeves so I could cover my arms when winter rolls in. There is a warning tag on the sweater that it is very delicate and possibly susceptible to snagging easily so that is definitely a concern. Even though it is cotton, I still worry about pilling because it is so soft. Time will tell. I am about 5'4" 110lbs and 32A and took an x-small.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Budals2 Too delicate
This sweater is so close to being great! I absolutely love the mustard yellow color.... it is gorgeous! The material is super soft and cozy and the fit is true to size. However, I noticed on the back of the sweater several holes starting to form from the delicate yarn pattern. Also the material seems likely to pill easily. I just could not justify spending nearly $100 to have this only last 1 season. Such a shame as the color, and style are beautiful. I had to pass on this one.

This is such an attractive sweater -- soft, beautiful mustard color, well proportioned, dreamy flattering TTS fit, beautiful details -- but while ringing it up, I noticed several pulls & snags.
On closer inspection, there were also several unfinished, abruptly cut yarn 'ends' in the middle of the body of the sweater that were not finished with knots or securely stitched down, so even the slightest stretch or pull meant things would unravel, which they were. Trying to find a replacement yielded the same results -- each of the 3
I scrutinized had identical flaws. In fact the cabling on the back seems particularly fragile. The yarn was unraveling to show nickel-sized holes which were definitely not part of the design.
Is this specific to the yellow colored sweaters I looked at? Not certain, but please examine closely if you try this on. Such a shame! A surprising lack of quality & a pass for me.
