Poor fabric and chemical smell
As another review mentioned, this recycled cashmere feels worse than merino wool, and both sweaters I received smelled awful. Not tolerable even at sale prices.

Great Sweater - but smelly
Beautiful sweater. Cosy material and fits like a glove (6.1 ft and 165 lbs - size M). The blue striped color combination is easy to match with other items and adds a bit of pizzazz. The only downside: it smells like an army surplus store. Dont know if this is the inherent odor of recycled cashmere or is do to inappropriate storage (bought from Pata...

I bought this sweater for my husband. He is 6’2”, 175 lb, so I bought a size large, so it would be long enough in the sleeves and waist. This sweater hangs kind of shapelessly off his shoulders, and even on his arms. It lacks definition. Doesn’t hug the waist or wrist. On the bright side, it is super soft, as you would expect from cashmere, and w... Read Moree are happy with the recycled aspect. He states it is super comfortable, if a bit too large. I also had hoped the color would be more on the grey-blue side, vs the more baby blue color it is.
Feels soft and light and gives a great layer of warmth. I’m 5’7” and 145 lbs and the small was fine. Plus, it’s Patagonia. I actually started to look at other providers, but I realized that Patagonia checks all the boxes: responsibly sourced, well made with a life time guarantee and treats employees fairly. That’s all I need.
Steez For Days
If your office is having an ugly sweater party, skip this sweater and keep looking. I don't want to take the sweater off, which may be problematic when its time to take a shower. The material has a delightful next to skin feel and the beech brown has a pleasant warm autumn steez. Only down side is my neck wants to be cozy like the rest of my t... Read Moreorso. An easy fix would be a turtle neck in this exact same sweater. I like turtles.
Cozy Cozy Cashmere!
Heavier than my other cashmere sweaters, and less delicate. A wonderful, cozy sweater for chilly nights. A note on size: A large shirt would be snug on me, extra-large is usually nice and roomy. I bought a 2xl, hand-washed it and laid it out to dry (inside, under a ceiling fan). With that, it fits about right. Because cashmere shrinks. A lot!
Comfortable, soft, warm and looks great
I love the sweater so much that I bought a second one already. I’ve been wearing them a lot for travel because they stay good looking and in shape, even after a red eye, and you can roll straight into the office and still look somewhat put together. Super warm, soft and comfortable with just a tshirt on under it,
My favorite sweaters of all time!
I started wearing Patagonia cashmere sweaters about 20 years ago. I had several and wore them most days during the winter. Those eventually wore out after so much wear. I bought a few more this year and could not be happier! The feel and fit are perfect. They are like having some old friends back. I love the colors this season too!
Good size, warm, comfortable.
It’s very light and soft to the touch, my one reservation about it is that it can feel kind of scratchy on my torso and arms. I’m hopeful that will stop after some use as I’ve only had it for a week and worn it 2-3 times. As for size, I’m a 6’6” and rather slender guy and the large fits me perfectly.
Nice useful sweater but runs *really* large
This is a very nice sweater which will hopefully wear well. Soft as well as nice and warm. As with most Patagonia gear, well constructed. Runs several circles around the offerings from Arcteryx, which usually has nice gear. Just be careful with the sizing. As noted by one reviewer, this sweater runs very large in the body. I usually wear an XL or i... Read Moref a trim fit an XXL. In this sweater the XL fit like a sack, which might be OK in some situations, but the the L is the best overall fit.
Comfortable. Good looking. Who could ask for anything more. I have two other cashmere sweaters from Patagonia over the years and I will say this recycled version is just a titch itchier. But just a titch. Fits me perfectly and I’m 5’8” and 145lbs with slightly broad shoulders and purchased a small.
I bought this sweater from the SLC Patagonia outlet in 1998. Been wearing it for almost 20 years for everything from dress up to backcountry skiing/mountain biking. My dear (86yo.) mother put patches on the elbows about 5 years ago. I plan to send it back to be recycled when I buy the new one. Buy this sweater! You won't regret it.
Best Sweater you can Buy
Yes, this sweater is a little pricey compared to other Patagonia items, but its worth it. Its unbelievably warm, its rugged enough to wear outdoors, and slick enough to wear to the office. I bought two and wear them a lot. Just waiting for more colors to come out. Also, its a great length some of the other Patagonia sweaters are too long. This one ... Read Moreis perfect.
