Rated 1 out of 5┬áby Petalpusher Disappointing quality-nice colors
This sweater arrived today and from the photo I expected a gorgeous knitted sweater.. It photographs well, but in person, is a huge disappointment.
It is a knitted fabric stamped with a pattern instead of a knitted sweater using different yarns. The hood isn't lined ( and should be for this price),showing an unsightly seam and the reverse side,which is not attractive.
The pattern is pretty,a great length, and weight is good for milder climates but not for me unless half price...I sadly have to return.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Mustard It's an outercoat if you live in Florida
Although I still think it's pretty, it was not as striking out of the box as it was online. Online the colors look to be deep reds but in reality the reds are more fuchsia toned. The yellow threading looks duller than online too.
It's quire light. There is no way I would wear as an outer coat in the winter. Although I think it would still be great for indoor use as a long cardigan.
Fabric quality isn't amazing. It's only 44% wool and then 30% acrylic.
I think I'll have to be careful with the snap closures so they don't damage the sweater when pulling them apart. I could see this being an issue.
It seemed to fit fine and be true to size. Not too much of an achievement though considering it's not fitted.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Blue242 Jacquard knit
I agree that I would have liked to see the hood lined on this sweatercoat, but it has become one of my winter staples this season, I wear it with jeans indoors and it is fine. It is most definitely NOT a stamped-on knit design I am not sure where a previous reviewer got that idea, it is a jacquard knit, so I hope that previous comment didn't put anyone off.
