Women's Linen-Blend Sweater, Pullover is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Sweater Am from Alabama, and though it gets pretty hot here, I am older and the air conditioning in most places is way too cold. So this sweater is just the right weight for me. It is beautifully made, looks very expensive. I like my tops roomy, and always go for the XL size. However, the sleeves are too long on almost all sizes of L.L. Bean sweaters. I just roll them up, but there is no need for them to be so long. I prefer the tunic length, and that's how this sweater fits on me. Eventually, I will buy the cardigan version, too. Haven't washed it yet, but will use my usual method of using the delicate wash cycle and air drying it for a short period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweater Another great sweater made in Jordan, like the coastal cotton sweater. This one has very pretty stitching. I especially like the stitching that runs down the outside of the sleeves. It was too big when I first tried it on out of the package, but after a wash and dry (!) it fit perfectly. It is a mid-weight sweater with a nice neckline, a little wider than a crewneck but not as wide as a boatneck. I wish it were available in jewel tones but I love the sailcloth color. The description suggests wearing a cami underneath, probably because of the loose ornate stitching, but surprisingly I didn't notice any show-through without a cami. Maybe it depends on how tight the sweater fits if the stitches stretch a little. Anyway, great sweater! I really love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but… This was a nice looking quality sweater until I tried it on. It was a much longer length then I expected and I don’t like sweaters that fall down below my butt because once it’s worn, you have unattractive butt stretch! I sent the sweater back, so I can’t honestly say how this sweater looked after wearing, but it was a length that I don’t buy. I have been looking to replace the Shaker stitch knitting pattern (Half Fisherman’s Rib) sweater that I bought years ago and completely wore it out! I have tried several LLBean sweaters, but just can’t find one that I like anywhere even close to it; in shape, pattern and yarns as the Fisherman’s knit sweater. Please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice sweater! I ordered a small in the sailcloth color. The color is flattering - a cross between white and ivory. Great style - comes to just below the hip and love the boatneck and lines of knit which flatter the figure. I think the size small runs big so I took a chance and washed it on the warm setting and put it in the dryer. It shrunk to fit me perfectly - not as wide in the chest and not as loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Casually lovely I bought the sandstone heather color to pair with black pants for an outside evening Mid-May event in PA. It was the perfect weight for the temperature, and the sweater works for both dressy and casual. The weave and fabric are quite nice. Fit is straight rather than fitted and hip length, which works with the pandemic 15, and beyond. Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but runs large Love the feel of the fabric on bare skin: very non-irritating. Ordered a small but it's quite generous on me. I did not find modesty to be an issue when wearing alone with a nude color bra (I somewhat match the color Sandstone). I'm reordering in XS and sending the Small to my wider shouldered sister. Sleeve length is slightly long for LL Bean (yay!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED the sweater I ordered this on a Daily Markdown and got it in a Small and a Medium at a fantastic price. I am 5' 2.5", weight 132 lbs. One was Sailcloth and the other was Sandstone Heather color because I couldn't decide what color I liked best. Got the order and the small was HUGH all over. Under the arms was hanging and the sleeves were about 2-3" too long. I called to order an extra small which I usually never take and unfortunately they were sold out of all 3 colors. I was heartbroken because it was a beautiful sweater. It wasn't offered in a Petite. I beleive the sizing was off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pullover sweater Love the sweater, the design, color and the weight. Not too heavy! Sleeves are a little long on me, but I am petite. I like the soft coral color!
