Long Sleeve Silk Blend Rib Mockneck
Color was not what I expected
I have a saffron turtleneck sweater, and love the color, and it goes with a jacket I have, but is a little too warm together. So I ordered the lighter weight silk blend mockneck in saffron, in a Petite Large, which I normally wear. First of all the saffron color of the mockneck was nowhere near the same saffron as the turtleneck, nor what was shown in the catalog. Frankly it was a putrid shade of brownish yellow. Secondly, the mockneck was too long for me and a little too snug. Nor did I like the texture and feel of the material.

Just received this sweater in the black cherry color...it fits perfectly, and looks great with both black and grey pants. Have 2 other colors-black and ivory on back order..can't wait to receive them! Just what I need for an upcoming European trip in late January.

This sweater felt fabulous!
The texture and fit on this washable, partially silk, sweater, felt so luxurious that I have ordered a second one. I am now awaiting the back-ordered Dutch Blue. The size was perfect and the new color, Bay Mist, while not terribly descriptive, was identical to the picture. This was definitely a keeper.

Warm and comfortable for me
I like the feel of this sweater; a friend tried it on and didn't care for the feel. I bought this as a warm layer for a UK trip next spring, and expect to get a lot of use from it. Wore it on a recent trip and found it a bit too warm on a 65-degree day layered under a cotton shirt, but very comfortable up to about 60 degrees. I wear a petite large or medium, depending on the item and drape; this Large fits fairly nicely, hanging loosely enough to not show off my bulgy middle while not looking over-sized. Most other Appleseed Large items are way too big on me.

Lovely color and great deal
I got this on sale to wear later, so I can't speak to wear and washing. I couldn't pass this deal up. I do love sweaters like this ,but as I age I find most increasingly too warm. I have not had a silk blend before but I hope that will change! Looking forward to wearing as the weather changes.

Beautiful, but damaged
The mockneck sweater was beautiful, but front of garment had snags! Returned it and hopefully will receive a new one without blemishes.

Being part silk, I expected this sweater to be of lighter weight. This being the case, however, I found the snug fit flattering and a good choice to wear under a jacket. The color is very pretty and I like the mock turtle neckline easy to wear.
