Worst sweater purchase.
I fell in love with this sweater immediately. It was roomy, super warm and very soft. I bought the large, even though the sizing said I was a medium. The sweater ran small, so I was happy I bought the large. I even bought a medium for a different fit. These sweaters have been a nightmare to launder! Even though the instructions say to hand wash in cold water (which I do in my HE washer). I had no problem with the (L) sweater for the first three washings. No shrinkage, no problem. The (M) sweater stunk like chemicals and it didn't go away until it was dry, and it shrunk a little. Suddenly, my (L) sweater shrunk to a size that is now smaller than my (M) sweater! If the sweaters are not washable, they should say ""Dry Clean Only""! I am sending them both back.
This is a great sweater, the quality was excellent and I loved the color. Unfortunately the fit was not good. . it ran much larger than I expected and I had to return it.
Substantial weight and soft feel. This runs slightly large, but I wanted a nice long (enough to cover my bum) sweater to wear with skinny jeans and tall boots and this works perfectly. Very nice quality and a classic style that can be worn for years.
Great Pullover Cableknit
I was planning a trip to an area of the country that required real warm clothing. Living in Nevada, there's not much need for real warm things so I went directly to Orvis as they have always been able to satisfy certain needs. And as usual I was greatly suprised to find this great pullover cableknit. The colour, charcoal, is very rich and the weight of the sweater was not as heavy as most, but as warm as I needed for New Jersey. Although it has a loose turtleneck, it was not choking like many and as toasty outdoors and yet comfortable enough inside that I didn't require to take it off for something lighter in weight. I am hoping it stays in the line for awhile as I would love to have the coral and the off white as well. Great quality for the money and totally satified.

Best sweater I have ever purchsed
Evidently, someone else thought the same because they stole mine last night when i removed it to dance. I had to buy another. I bought the first one during the big president's day sale and got it for a lot less but even so this sweater (which i had to buy at almost full cost) is worth every penny. You'll live in it.
Perhaps it was just not what I was looking for, but i found this sweater to be way to bulky, especially the neck.
I haven't decided if I will keep this only because of the collar, may be a tad itchy for me. But the rest of it is phenomenal...gorgeous quality and fit is perfect. A wonderful sweater...may keep but just wear a light t neck underneath.
Love this sweater!
I wanted this sweater all season. I got it in ivory when it went on sale. It is beautiful. Now I want the other color.
Warm and Cuddly Sweater
Very nice looking, soft sweater. It's a long sweater - could be worn with leggings or skinny jeans. The pewter color is very nice but I can't decide if it's grey,grey-brown, grey-green .... I am generally a size 10 / 12 (5' 10"", 148 lbs) so some things I need a medium, some a large. The medium was not tight at all - but then this isn't the type of sweater that you want to be form fitting. Great for cold mornings when the thermometer dips below freezing.

Love this sweater
This sweater matches the photos and previous reviews: lovely wool sweater, runs a bit large and is great over leggings and skinny jeans. I like that I can wear lighter layers underneath and pull on the sweater instead of a jacket for hikes and cool, not cold weather. And it's beautiful. Note: The color isn't my idea of pewter - it's definitely got a green cast to the grey.
My Go to Sweater
I love this sweater, I have it in almost every color and wear them all the time. The fit is a little oversized but I like it that way. I would try to buy any color that would come out if I could.
My Favorite Sweater!!
I have been wanting a nice cabled sweater reminiscent of Irish sweaters. I was always hesitant to buy one, however, due to the costs and concern that the sweater would be too heavy. I caught this one on sale before Christmas and snatched it up! I absolutely LOVE this sweater! I have tons of sweaters, you could say I collect them...and this has to be hands down my favorite! So much so I recently bought another one in the other color available! I'll be watching next year to see if they come out with another color...can't wait!
I Love This Sweater
Last year I bought the taupe one and this year the gray and love wearing them. The large fits perfectly but last years medium is the very same size. It's so cozy that I often skip wearing a coat. The only problem this year is that we are having a warm winter.

I LOVE this sweater !!!!
This is a FANTASTIC sweater -- beautiful, top quality, soft and warm. I am more in the 1X size range but took a chance on the XLG size since other reviewers said it runs large. It fits perfectly and feels wonderful. The pewter color is exactly what I wanted, and the sale price makes it the best value I've seen in a long time. If you are thinking about ordering one, think no longer -- just do it! You won't be sorry.
Couldn't Take It Off
This arrived on a morning when I needed a little cosseting. Up to my ears and down past my hips in fine merino tempered with alpaca, made in Peru (where they know a thing or two about cold weather), cocooned but not smothered, liberated rather than restrained, I began to unwind. The try-on turned into a live-in. Ahhhhhh.
