"exceeded all my expectations !"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When this sweater arrived I was thrilled at how beautiful the colors were and how skilled the handiwork was. When I tried it on , it fit perfectly! In fact, the sleeves were plenty long, and they rarely are for me. It is warm yet lightweight, and everytime I wear it I get lots of complements. I want to wear it every day as it matches all my pants.

"Now I have two!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a marvelous sweater. Its light, so I wear it even in the relatively cool Vermont summers. It goes with every color. To tell the truth, Ive worn one so often everyday that its a bit worn, so Ive ordered another just like it and will wear it at fancier occasions.

"pretty design, but thin as paper"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Yarn is thin, weave is loose. Sweater may be worn only for decoration, as its paper-thin & provides no warmth.

"Perfect sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is such a beautiful sweater. Craftmanship is impeccable. Love the color combo, I got the plum. Fits perfectly. I got a M. Im 56 and about 120 lbs. The sleeves are perfect length. Highly recommend this sweater or anything Cano makes. Well worth the price.

These are super soft, well made, and just awesome. My wrists and hands get cold the most. These are super helpful in the mornings when its cold outside and I have to drive my kids to school.

"even better than id hoped"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

stunning colors, lovely soft fabric, excellent craftsmanship. exactly as pictured, yet even nicer in real life. since i have long arms, i am thrilled that the arm length is longer than standard, just as others have described. i might have been mildly surprised by the lightweight gauge if i hadnt been forewarned; id also love this sweater in a heavier weight. i was pleasantly surprised at the quick delivery, despite covid &c -- i received the package (in MA) a mere 2 weeks after ordering. and although i thought id checked the not-a-gift box, it was beautifully gift-wrapped.

I got this for a present for my son. I wish I could give it to him now! This is beautifully made, soft and sturdy but not the least bit scratchy.

"Beautiful colors!"

Finely made, with gorgeous colors and intricate design. Will be thin enough to wear easily under my coat sleeves, or even within my gloves to keep my wrists and upper arms warm on freezing days.
