Wool Shetland Jacquard Cardigan
I like to dress in layers, especially in the fall/winter months, but I don't always want to wear blazers or sweatshirts. This sweater fits neatly in between - works with jeans or with a nice skirt. Not scratchy, fits well. I haven't had to clean it yet, so perhaps that would make a difference in my evaluation, but for this season, it's working out very well. I'd recommend it.

worst item I have ever received from Appleseeds
this sweater was obviously a returned item and them shipped back out without any quality control - it had dog hair on it and a hole in the elbow of the sweater. I have been a customer a long time and I was shocked to receive a sweater in this condition.

Sweater runs small
This is a very attractive sweater in style, but the fabric is rather sticky. (It is all wool). I might have lived with this as it would be worn over a blouse or tee but it was just too tight and could not button it comfortably. I don't want to discourage others from trying as it is very pretty and may fit someone else better.

Needed a cardigan, and this one fits the bill! Roomy and comfortable enough for a turleneck underneath with plenty of room to spare.

Good quality, but could be better
I purchased this through a great sale deal- the darker grey color- and like another reviewer, rinsed it with fabric softener to make it less scratchy; but it's always worn over something else. Fully fashioned armholes would have made this item almost heirloom quality although still not hand-knitted. Liked the naturally almost marled look to the yarns. I changed the plastic buttons to wooden ones, and now this sweater is one of my favorites.

Thick warm sweater
I bought this sweater for a trip to Iceland. It feels as if it will be very warm - just what I need. Like all Shetland wool, it was a little scratchy out of the box, but after being washed and with fabric softener, it's much softer. The neck is a little big, I don't like overlarge neck openings, and I want it to button warmly around my neck, so I have modified it with some gathering and hem tape - much better. It would be a perfect sweater for cold climates if you made the neck smaller.

Came with a very bad odor to it. I shouldn't have to launder
or dry clean an item before even wearing it. This has never
happened before. Is this because it is Blair and no longer
Appleseed? Very disappointed for the price.
