This sweater is SO soft! Usually I expect knits to be hot and itchy but this sweater is extremely soft and cozy. I can see why people say that it pills like crazy, but I have a sweater shaver so I am not too concerned about that. I ordered in the desert pink and the colour is lovely. The short boxy structure makes it perfect for layering over a lace slip!
ordered this in ivory before it went out of stock to have for the upcoming fall/winter. i was hesitant for a while based upon the reviews, and in person i can see how this sweater is likely to pill over time. however, the softness and style makes up for the extra maintenance. i'm 5'2", 100lbs and the XS fits great, i love the slightly over-sized fit and the drop shoulders. i assumed with the cotton construction that it would be a stiffer fabric, but it's much softer and cozier than i expected.
Chunky Cowl Neck Sweater
Love the Jumper but did shed prior to washing. I ordered the small and found it to be true to size. After washing it Must be dried flat on a towel to hold the shape.
I'm 5'4" and the small fits perfectly. It is unbelievable soft and the most comfortable sweater I own. I love it. I did have to shave it after the first wear though this is pretty average because of the chunkiness of the knit.
very soft, pills and sheds
I ordered this sweater online, and it was so soft and comfortable I didn't want to take it off. But in 2 minutes it had already started to pill. Furthermore, it shed on everything it touched. I was ambivalent about keeping it, but hoped that after I wore it for a few hours, it would stop pilling and shedding. I was wrong. I wear my clothes very gently, but this sweater has so many pills that after one wearing, it now looks like a cheap rag. And it has shed abundantly all over my car seat, tote bag, pants--literally everything it touched. I love the chunky weave and the soft fabric, but this sweater makes such a mess, it is embarrassing to wear. If I hadn't already worn it, I would return it.

Desert Pink Nicer in Person!
I LOVE this sweater. I saw it on the rack in the Portland, OR store in the cream, navy and desert pink. I am always drawn to navy but they didn't have my size in that so I tried the desert pink for sizing and fell in love with the color when I tried it on! The pictures don't do it justice- it is a richer, warmer pink in person, not like the dull brown in the photos. It is boxy, but I do like that style. The turtleneck is roomy so you don't get too overheated or claustrophobic wearing it, and it is nice and chunky so it is warm. However it does pill quite a bit so be wary of that. For reference, I am usually a FP size L-XL and I got the L in this, and it is fairly roomy, if you want it to be fitted, I would size down.
wash and wear
like the other reviewers state, i sheds. al lot. washing does help. It fits true to size, very flattering on. The dark navy is so dark you might wear with black colors.the off white is beautiful. If you can put up with the shedding, you will love this sweater for a long time.
Is it snowing?
Nope, it's my sweater... I bought this right before a trip where I was traveling out of the country. I thought it would be perfect for the plane, extra cozy! My hair, my pants, my neighbor were all covered in this sweater... Looks great on, but not practical.
I LOVED everything about this sweater. The creamy color. The softness. The size / shape. It was just beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. EXCEPT that is sheds all over everything. Sadly, I had to return it. I just couldn't deal with the inevitable mess that came with putting it on even for a minute. Too bad.....
Great Sweater but Sheds
This sweater is of good quality, and I would highly recommend it for the winter seasons. The material is thick, soft, and deflects the winter chill successfully. The Cowl Neck Sweater fits true to size with enough room for layering shirts underneath for added warmth. Unfortunately, the material has a tendency to shed before initial washing. The thick, loose knit can leave a good deal of excess fibers that cling to all other articles of clothing. I highly recommend washing the Chunky Cowl Neck Sweater before wearing. Overall, this sweater is one of my favorite finds this season.
