Women's L.L.Bean Classic Ragg Wool Sweater, Fair Isle Cardigan is rated out of 5 by 167.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtGirl999 from Absolutely beautiful ...but .... this sweater is absolutely beautiful and it has timeless classical design. The quality of the wool and the knit, how the sweater is crafted is top. I love that the neutral colors, creams, grays, and blacks can be worn with a variety of tones in pants or skirts. While all of these qualities are true, the sweater and I don't do a thing for one another! After several days of trying it on and gazing in the mirror I decided that perhaps I am too short for the design which is curved, but creates a horizontal effect. And maybe a petite would have been better for a shorter person. I am five ft three and around 140 lbs... pear shape. No complaints about the sweater... we just are not so good together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Customer from Beautiful but ITCHY This is a pretty and warm sweater but it is quite itchy. And the neck is too high. It would have been more comfortable if it had a thin lining. I didn’t purchase the one with fleece lining because this is already a quite bulky sweater as is. I agree with others that the double zipper has issues and gets stuck. Several of these problematic points are surprisingly mentioned also in the comments with 5 stars. Unfortunately it may be deceiving for some customers who are considering to purchase this sweater based on the overall numbers of 5-star comments - without actually reading the content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NEtoMW from Great winter sweater Just got this sweater in 'cream'. Would caution that, like in the photo, it has tones of both gray and brown - not just an off white. Will be great on cold days as it is substantial wool. Also note that it runs a bit larger than normal. I buy a Medium if description says "slightly fitted".....I could probably have worn a small, but based on the item I'm okay with it being a little loose. Also noticed a slight odor to it upon arrival - but a couple hours outside took care of that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ADKwoman from Warm sweater I love fairisle yoke sweaters so I was thrilled when I saw this one. I just wish the neckline was a little lower and didn't rise as high along my neck. I can't tolerate wool touching my bare neck so I will be wearing this cardigan only over turtleneck tops. It is a VERY warm sweater, so something I will be wearing as outerwear and not an indoor sweater. It fits well though and I'm pleased with the sleeves. Many of the sweaters available today seem to have sleeves that are so narrow that only very thin people can wear them, but these are ample enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mowie from Gorgeous sweater Sweater is beautiful, heavy weight and very well made. I have very long arms and it fit perfectly, arms were long enough (hard to find, given my height). Read lots of reviews about itchy, uncomfortable neck and faulty zipper-- neck didn't bother me in the least (even when I wore a t-shirt and not a turtle neck under it) and the zipper works just fine. I actually really like the zipper-- it's heavy weight and nice to be able to adjust as needed. It's very warm, as noted. I've gotten comments each time I wear it-- love the colors (I bought it in the burgundy color).

Rated 5 out of 5 by cameralady from A Sweater Jacket This is a heavy weight sweater that will keep you nice and warm. I bought a petite medium which fits more like a jacket on me. The zipper works well and the sleeves are not too tight. It is wool so it is a bit itchy around the neck, but I love it anyway. The fair isle pattern is lovely. I usually wear a petite small in sweaters but got the medium as I wanted a loose fit. For a more fitted style go with your regular size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pandorapink from Beautiful jacket sweater I ordered this over the weekend and received it today. Totally didn’t need it but loved the online photo. It does not disappoint. I love the blue and green and the fair isle style. I have a number of these collected over the years from Bean. It’s heavy in weight and can really work as a jacket on cool days. Fits nicely and has a beautiful shape. Thank you LL BEAN for being so dependable over so many years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PugHippie from nice sweater but..... This is a high quality wool sweater that would be perfect on a very cold day. I love zippered cardigans. and 100% wool sweaters The reason I rated this low is because when the sweater is unzipped, the top edges of the sweater are too tall and rub against my face! It's rather uncomfortable and my neck is of normal size as compared to other people. This problem is worse when sitting down. I'd considered returning it but wool zippered cardigan sweaters for women can be hard to find so i will keep it.
