"pretty design, but thin as paper"

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

"Now I have two!"

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

"It will be worn only at home!"

Nice pattern and colors, light and warm but the sleeves and the cardigan are too long and it does not fit well. There is not return form, I am disappointed!

"exceeded all my expectations !"

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.
