Rated 4 out of 5 by Patina40 adding to the collection
i own several of these sweaters in various colors and I am generally happy with all of them except some pill more easily than others. I hope this last purchase is not a "pill". The last color I ordered is :"walnut heather" which is lighter in color that I had expected based on the pictures on my computer and smart phone. However, I think I will enjoy it even though I had wanted a darker color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CleoB Scratchy Like Cat Hairs
I should have listened to someone else's post, when she said, "I'm disappointed with the scratchiness of the wool and also the color. It's described as navy, but it's very dark and the heathering looks like occasional cat hairs." Well, this captures the quality well. I will just say it feels like cat hairs, and I like cats!
Fit: perfect medium petite, with the sleeves not too long for someone like myself with shorter arms and torso. Color: Very dark navy heather. Buttons: lovely. Hangs really well-- just thick enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pookle456 It's Shetland after all
I knew it was Shetland wool but this seemed to be quite coarse and of course scratchy. More than I hoped it would be. I ordered a large petite and found it just the right length in body and sleeves (I'm 5'2" 130lbs) but too tight in the bust. I'm sure it's warm which is what I was looking for but you'd have to wear a turtleneck under it to avoid the scratchiness. I returned it and will look for Merino wool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Avocet Woolly wool is lovely
This is a very nicely finished sweater, & a nice change from merino merino merino. This lofty, "normal" wool will pill less and be very warm. I'll enjoy wearing it for years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gram057 One of the few items I've returned.
The sweater was just the right color but was 'draggy' at the neck and very, very scratchy. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by puddentain It is a beautiful sweater. However, it is heavie
It is a beautiful sweater, however it is heavier
than I desire at this time. I will return the
product this week.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MrsJ41 "Lightweight" means thin and cheap
This sweater is not made of the finest wool. I have other wool sweaters and none of them are this scratchy or smell this bad, it smells like a petroleum product. If I hadn't paid so much in shipping I would definitely send it back. The only nice thing I can say about this sweater is the color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FloridaGmom Haven't actually worn it yet.
Color and fit are great, but fabric is stiff and rough. Hoping it softens when washed.
