Women's Classic Cashmere, Crewneck is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 517.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely poor quality This is my fourth season buying the Classic Cashmere Crewneck sweater. I have bought 2 each year. The past three years the sweaters were soft, comfortable, and provided some warmth. They always have pilled quickly and wore out, but were easily replaced the next year. They have been dependably comfortable for around town shopping with a pair of jeans. This year's version is nothing like the past sweaters. It is not fluffy or soft and it is paper thin. It feels like a thin light cotton and not at all like cashmere. It's a huge disappointment. I would recommend going elsewhere for a basic cashmere crewneck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite, warmest, softest sweater ever This is my second cashmere pullover sweater from LL Bean and its my favorite sweater. I have the gray and now the oatmeal color. Both of these are versatile and perfect for any wardrobe. The oatmeal color is a lot darker than i thought it'd be. I was hoping for more of a light tan color, but this is definitely closer to brown than tan. The sweater itself is the warmest and softest thing in the world and worth the $99 price. I'm always hesitant to purchase expensive sweaters, but I know LL Bean makes high quality products that last. It's such an investment piece and makes any outfit look like a million bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had two more! This is my second crew neck cashmere sweater from Bean's and I love it just as much. I bought a black sweater last year and found myself wearing it at least once a week so purchased another in blue just two weeks ago & have worn several times already. The color is vibrant and springy and I love it. The fit is good and the best is the cashmere which feels spectacular. It is warm and comfortable in very cold weather but never too hot when the weather warms up to 50 degrees: In a meeting, I never worry about getting too hot like I do with my big wool ones. These sweaters wash up beautifully (delicate machine wash and I dry it flat), fit nicely under a jacket or cardigan and wish I had 2 more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it, was going to purchase another I purchased this sweater last year, wore it only a few times. Have not washed it. I was actually going to purchase another one in a different color and started reading the reviews, which prompted me to go look at my already purchased sweater. I too have a hole in the under arm and slight pilling. The pilling I could live with but the hole is on the back side of the under arm so I didn't notice it until I went looking. It is beautifully soft and the color is wonderful, I just wish the quality was better. I am willing to take the risk to see if it was just a bad batch with the hole because the sweater is that nice but I wouldn't recommend to a friend because of the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, Order half size up, More Colors in PLUS I'm square between a 2X and 3X and am apple-shaped with a broad back and thick upper arms. If this is you, order the 3X. There's no way a 2X would have fit in the armholes - where LLBean tends to struggle in the Plus Sizes anyway. The light grey is beautiful. Am ordering a black one now. As per usual, the Plus Sizes never come in as many colors as the Regular sizes. At least LL Bean corrected their PASTEL FOR PLUS SIZE kick of a few years ago! Still, there are some really cute color options in the regular sizes that we don't have access to. What about making these available on a "made to order" option?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thin This sweater is fantastic at first but, it is thin and does not maintain its shape over time. Per research, the price matches the quality of this product. Within a month, this sweater has changed in to a bag like shape. I bought this sweater because I had received a fantastic second hand LLB cashmere sweater from my mother 5 years ago. It was my favorite sweater, a beautiful layer for work and skiing. LLB has been a reliable brand throughout my life but, this sweater does not meet my expectations. I would only buy this sweater if one was planning to wear it once in a while. Clearly, It is not for every day use and, is not the the same quality product that was sold 10 years ago.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have been a customer for many years and have always been very pleased with LLBean merchandise. However, a few months ago I ordered this sweater in black. The first few times I wore it, it shed terribly over my pants. I attributed that to the sweater being new and never laundered. I then washed it per the laundry instructions and was even more disappointed. The sweater pilled terribly. It looked like an inexpensive sweater purchased from a discount store, not one purchased from a quality retailer. I spent a lengthy period of time cleaning it off so it could be worn. I assumed I would love it like all my other LLBean items and planned to order other colors as well. Fortunately, I did not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and versatile LLBean's cashmere crew is by far the best of all the basic cashmere sweaters I've ever owned. They wash beautifully in a lingerie bag on gentle cycle in my front-loader, and ones I've had for several years still look like new in spite of the fact they get lots of wear. The crew neckline isn't too high, so it doesn't look frumpy, and the design is versatile enough to work for the office or on weekends depending on your choice of accessories. The colors are rich and beautiful, and it's so refreshing to find sweaters without decorative buttons, ties, or other silly embellishments that are so common today. A true classic that will last for years. Highly recommended!
