Women's Cotton/Cashmere Sweater, Crewneck is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic Casual Sweater With Great Colors I ordered the Raw Indigo Sweater because I love the blue color. I wanted a casual sweater to wear with jeans at home this winter. It is a little large, but acceptable. I have not washed it yet. What I don't find acceptable is the raw seam on one shoulder that is held together with about two threads. Since the sweater is fine otherwise, I plan to keep it and pull the seam together with a few stitches before I launder it so it doesn't pull apart. I know there is a pandemic but L.L.Bean does seem to have increased issues with quality control as noted by other reviewers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unflattering Shoulders I ordered this because I tried and almost loved the cotton cashmere turtleneck sweater. I supposed this would be the same but without the roll neck. It is not. I love the fabric, but the shoulder that are supposed to have "casual appeal" are deeply unflattering. They are sewn inside out, so they have a raw edge, which in itself isn't a bad idea. However, they are awkward and a bit too wide, so it looks as though the sweater has been hanging on a hanger and become misshapen. Sloppy is probably the kindest word for how this looked on me. A crewneck sweater is inherently casual, so I'm not sure what L.L. Bean was going for with this odd approach to "casual appeal." I'm disappointed and frustrated that I can find a simple sweater in this fantastic material.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I ordered a large in this sweater. My usual size to fit a little loose. 1. This fits like a man's medium. It was VERY large and long. 2. This gray sweater...the sleeves had an exterior seam. ??? I don't see that in the photo. I also ordered a black ..the sleeve seams were sewn on the interior....but still sizing was larger than expected as well. I ordered a cashmere sweater, large and it fits as all my other LL Bean sweaters do, not like this cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sizing I ordered small and medium. Kept small because I like a slimmer look. Wish sleeves were longer - they're right at my wrist bones. Went back to order another color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sweater I find finer gauge sweaters more versatile for the way I like to dress. I appreciate the simple neck, sleeve cuff and hem ribbing. I purchased four in different colors and but find 2 are more soft than the other 2; not rough or scratchy but almost. Just less soft and pliable. I've wondered why this is as I have laundered them all the same. This is not a deal breaker, but the one in particular is much more comfortable around the neckline and chest if I have a lighter silk tee layer underneath. I would consider purchasing another if a shade of green or pink were available. Hint! Hint!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice This sweater is soft and comfortable -- a great basic for the price. I will probably handwash it as I do for other sweaters. I would love to see it in some additional classic colors, like navy or camel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me but a nice sweater This didn't come in Petite (and might have shrunk if I'd given it a chance, washing ton warm). The thing that dissuaded me from trying it, is the bulge on each side, immediately above the ribbing, at the bottom of the sweater. It the sweater stretched to fit across my hips, I probably would not note it (it would smooth out). Plus, pull-over is not my favorite style. The fabric felt wonderful on my skin, also the weight. I was happy to try this new style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy sweater! A majority of the seams are reversed so the raw edge is exposed. I loved the comfort and color so much that I overlooked their weirdness. I have washed this one time in Woolite and cold water and then layed flat to dry. Washed very well. I ordered up one size since I am 5’10” and wanted to ensure the sleeve length was acceptable. It was then; otherwise, might have been a tad short. The Muted Purple color is beautiful. Overall, I really like this sweater!
