Patagonia Women's Recycled Cashmere Crew

True To Size
September 24, 2020

Love it--more colors please!

Warm enough for fall and good for layering in winter. Very comfortable with a sort of slouchy (but not messy) fit. A bit more of an open weave than I expected, but I love it and I throw it on over everything. I really appreciate that it's recycled and hope to see more recycled sweater options. I would love to buy it in other colors (I have the... Read More grey), but those available are too similar to what I already have: just neutrals! Patagonia, please offer more colors in this style like you do in the men's recycled cashmere crewneck sweater (50525) with its multiple jewel tones and even (gasp!) stripes!

Fave of all sweaters!

This sweater is my all-time favorite sweater and I wear it so much that people ask if I have any other clothes! GET. THIS. NOW! I watch this product online to see if more colors will appear and wish they would as they are few and sort of strange. Black, teal, or a prettier grey please!!

luxurious and cozy

I was so delighted when I received and put on this sweater. It is soft and luxurious, so cozy, comfy and beautiful.

Beautiful, lightweight sweater

Very flattering cut and the fabric is very light and soft. In the weeks since this arrived I have worn it biking, hiking, and to the beach! (That sounds weird but fall in New England). Great neutral color - will wear this a LOT!

September 14, 2020

Comfortable and Soft

While it may appear to be another grey sweater, this one is super soft and flattering. I have worn it for work and as an added warm layer around the house. The price point may be intimidating, but I found the cost worth the recycled nature of the yarn, the quality of construction, and the comfort of the sweater.

thermal weave of recycled cashmere....special seaming....set in sleeves...generous cuffs....cozy and comfortable.

Soft, flattering fit

Love this sweater! It's lightweight and hangs beautifully. The length is perfect; overall very flattering. More colors please!!

I love the cut and the weight of this sweater

Wow. I usually find Patagonia tops to be too boxy for my taste but this sweater hangs nicely, has a great length and the sleeves are long enough for my long arms. The weight is perfect for me - warm but not too heavy or bulky. It's soft (I am picky!) and I really like the hem details - rounded and a bit longer in the back. I am 5'7",...

So soft!

Love this sweater--can't wait until the weather gets cooler. It's super soft and fits true to size.

July 15, 2020

LOVE this sweater

I'm 5'4, 27" waist, broad shoulders/back. I got the size small, which is absolutely perfect. This sweater fits like a dream and is SO soft! I absolutely love it. Be warned - you will need to wear a layer under it (tank top, thermal long sleeve in winter, etc.). It is wonderfully warm and cozy, and I am hoping to order another soon!

July 15, 2020

It's see through

I was really excited to add a cashmere sweater to my work wardrobe. Unfortunately, the weave of the sweater is very see through. Whatever you are wearing under it (or lack thereof) is 100% visible. You have to layer. Otherwise, it is very comfortable, soft, and breathable (lol.) It is not as soft as your average J.Crew cashmere sweater because of t... Read Morehe weave but still very supple.

cloud snuggles

This sweater is incredibly lightweight and soft, yet warm. I usually wear medium, but ordered a large for a looser fit, and it worked for me. Because the sweater is so lightweight, it drapes nicely and isn't bulky, even in the larger size.

Perfectly Soft

I love this sweater and am half tempted to buy another one. It is very soft and warm and perfect with just a tank top underneath. It is a little baggy in the sides but not enough to dissuade me from wearing it and it pills a little in the axillary. Other than that, it is perfect.

Beautiful Sweater

This is a wonderful sweater. Comfortable and soft. Lovely color. Meant for cool (not cold) temperatures, unless worn with a warm layer underneath.

perfectly designed sweater

I love the unusual lines of this sweater. It is unusual but fits beautifully and works for me. I wear it all the time....actually I have the red one in XS and would have gotten this one in XS but there weren't any. Both sizes work.

June 17, 2020

Very comfortable

Ordered both Medium & Large, medium was slightly small, so I went with Large, maybe itll shrink a bit, very soft, not heavy and could wear all the seasons, very nice quality.

June 17, 2020

Loved it so much, I bought another!

I purchased the grey color and it is the most comfortable sweater, light and warm and so soft. I purchased the tan one as well, fits the same and is made just as well but the cashmere seems just a little rougher. I don't like it quite as much as the grey, but they are both very well made.

June 17, 2020

Super great

I wear this sweater through all seasons and I always have it with me. Its a great weight and washes well. I wear it layered under a blazer for work, as a top layer to a yoga class or just running around. So good I bought a second for myself and one for my friend too. Thanks Patagonia for another awesome product.

Great Find

Warm and extremely soft sweater. Knit is such that you can see what is being worn underneath, but that's what makes this a great layering piece.

It fits fine without looking to... Read Moreo frumpy or saggy. Overall, good product.

Comfy but sheds

This sweater is super comfy. I bought it in red and in 5 minutes my white jeans had red fuzz on them. So disappointed as it is so comfy. Ill try it with dark jeans but never again with the white ones!

So cozy!

I love this sweater! I received it as a gift. It is super warm and soft. In fact, if you run hot, you might decide this sweater is too warm for you.

A great Valentine's Day present I gave myself!

I just received my cashmere sweater in red xs. I am 5'2" 100 pounds and am built like an Olympic ice skater.

Recycled Cashmere Crew

This sweater is amazing. It's soft and light but very warm - I've had it for about 2 weeks and I think I've worn it 5 times so far. As others have mentioned, the weave is loose so you can see a hint of the color of whatever top you're wearing underneath.

If you can get past the horrible odor of the sweater, be prepared for a ridiculous amount of shedding. I tried on a grey sweater with a pair of black pants. After 5 minutes, my pants looked like I had had a shedding dog on my lap... 🤣. Returned

Super soft with a great fit - buying every color!

I'm pretty picky about my sweaters but this one is A+. The cashmere is soft, has a perfect weight and the knit is quality -- I am typically a Small/XS in tops and dresses from Patagonia (5'4", 120 lbs, boyish build) - I went with small in this and it allows for a nice comfy fit; it covers the waist line and a bit of the tush too.

Really Really soft

The ultimate mom lounging around the house crew sweater. Does that count as an activity? I think so.

Great fit but pills after two wears

Beautiful fit and construction however under the arms of the sweater the cashmere is starting to pill. Other wise, beautiful sweater!

smart recycling

I like knowing I'm wearing something recycled. The fit is good, and it's versatile.

Oh so cozy

Have been really loving this super cozy sweater. The open knit is a bit hard to see in photos but the image of the Rincon Red being modeled does a great job showing how layers will appear, too see through for my liking without an undershirt. Despite the open knit it is noticeably warm. A relaxed fit that still looks professional and is easily layer... Read Moreed, dressed-up or worn with leggings. Went with a small and was a little concerned it would be too short in the torso, but fits great, only a slight stretch. Very interested to see how it wears, as it has a very delicate feel. A sweater stone is in my future, to keep this piece looking great, as I think I'll be living in it this winter.

November 7, 2019


I like the delicate open weave. It does require careful wear around my dogs, but it is very warm and flattering! Would love to get one with a tighter weave as well if that becomes an option.

Even better than I expected

I wasn't sure what to expect with a recycled cashmere sweater. This one is awesome! I went with a M instead of my usual small because I wanted something a bit more roomy. It does not disappoint.

I love this sweater so much I have it in 2 colors

I purchased my first Recycled Cashmere Crew last fall. I wore it for everything, fun nights out with friends, school activities, and over my yoga tops. It is warm and very versatile. I love it!

This is my second recycled cashmere sweater from Patagonia, after living in my black one from last season, I got a grey one so I can switch it up once in awhile.

Read More hot, but in the winter can layer with a long sleeve and be as comfy as I am in my fleece, but look professional.

2nd one

Really liked my black cashmere sweater and decided to order it in gray this season. I wash mine on cool/delicate cycle and dry flat. Turns out great! This sweater is designed to be worn on top of another shirt or cami as it isn’t a solid weave. Love the relaxed fit.

October 23, 2019

Beautiful Lacey

This sweater is really beautiful because it has a delicate open weave. I wish the colors were a little different. But trust that Patagonia is using dyes that are low impact on natural resources and on humans. So I don’t expect other crazy colors, just maybe a dusty blue or dark brown. I love that they’re using reclaimed Cashmere to make the sweater... Read More. That’s one of the reasons I bought it. I wouldn’t buy a brand new cashmere sweater.

Soft and lightweight with an open knit, the sweater has good details & a great cut. The mesh like knit makes it a good cool weather sweater, or great under a layer if it gets really chilly.

My Favorite New Sweater

Very soft and cozy. The open knit is a little larger than it seems in the photos but still very nice to layer over camis or ts.

Perfect for summer because it's a knit that has large wholes in it. It's my favorite sweater and I wear it all the time like a sweatshirt.

May 13, 2019

Lovely, but color is not what I expected

This is a lovely sweater and clearly well made. However, I wound up returning it because the red is really more of a magenta—much more pink than it looks in the photo. Nothing against magenta, it just wasn't what I was looking for in this sweater.

May 8, 2019

Nice texture of the cashmere but didn't like the weave

The weave is pretty loose-larger than desired holes so can see underwear. I returned it.

Beautiful Sweater

I love the color (a rich red), stying, and texture of this sweater. I’m a fan of recycled cashmere, not only because of it avoids waste. The recycled material is less fragile and prone to pilling.

May 8, 2019

Beautiful, comfy, soft

Absolutely love this loose fit crew. An open knit on the arms (you can see through if you look closely) allows for no overheating (bonus for me), but there's also room for another layer underneath if you're chilly.

Perfect sweater for work or everyday

This sweater fits like a dream, and is so incredibly soft. The seams nip it in at the waist a bit which looks great and slimming. The knit is very open, so it keeps you very warm when layered under a jacket, but lets air flow in and keeps you from overheating when worn without a jacket.

Perfect fit, so soft

It's a bit spendy, but I know I'll have it for a long time and wear it frequently! It fits perfectly, I love how the back is a bit longer. It's so soft! It's warm but not too warm - exactly what I wanted (I tend to get too warm at work if I have a super heavy sweater on). So glad I made the investment in this one!

Love it

I love this sweater so much. I own both a small and an XS and I wear them both at least twice a week (basically I alternate back and forth).

Nice, but lacy, eyelet knit is chilly

I just received the sweater in the mail, and it's nice, but I'm not sure if it's a keeper. I'm 5'9" and 125 lbs, and the length matches the sweater on the model, although I need to pull on the sleeves to get the same sleeve length. The Small fits well, and I usually wear a Small or sizes 4-6 in Patagonia. A couple revi... Read Moreewers describe the knit as a 'waffle weave,' but Patagonia calls it a' pointelle' knit. It is a more open, lacy knit that is pretty, but unfortunately, feels a little drafty to me. I'll try it with a few different base layers before I decide whether to keep or return it. The sweater is comfy and expands my winter wardrobe beyond the slimmer, shorter cuts of my old Patagonia sweaters (which are still going strong).

Flattering super soft sweater

Love it! Somewhat slouchy but more fitted through arms. Can’t wait for cooler days to wear it. I bought my normal size. I’m sure I’ll buy it in black too.

Best Sweater EVER

Most comfortable sweater I have ever owned. I’d wear it every single day if I could. Hopefully more colors to come!!! 11/10 a must have!!!

I almost didn't buy because of the price, but it is so soft, perfect and flattering. I got my normal size in birch--would consider another one if it came in gray!

Sloppy luxury

I first bought this in the Birch White and love it so much that I went back and bought the Forge Grey. It is incredibly lightweight,partly due to the waffle knit,and yet amazingly warm. I buy L in outwear,and bought L in this too,but actually think it might look better in M. I think the flare at the bottom doesn't work as well for me as it doe... Read Mores for some. However,I bought this for extreme comfort and that is what it supplies. Having had someone spill something on my Birch White,I had to wash it after the first wearing--I used Woolite and handwashed and dried flat--and it looks as good as new,though some might want to iron it to restore the exact shape. While I called my review "sloppy luxury," all it takes to amp up the look is a nice scarf.

November 22, 2017

SOOOO soft

I may have to go back and buy another color in this! This sweater is so cozy,soft and warm,but the loose weave makes it quite breathable too. It flared out a bit at the bottom which makes for a very flattering shape. I am a size L 90% of the time,but I may have to try the size M in the next one because it's a little big on me.

Lightweight but warm,and soft!

This is a loose-knit sweater that can be dressed up or down. It's super soft (I don't find it itchy at all and I have very sensitive skin) and I was surprised how warm it is for its weight. I wear over a tank on cool days and over a long-sleeved top for more warmth on colder days. I've noticed this sweater does stretch out some with ... Read Morewear,and it's definitely a very relaxed/looser fit around the bottom - but with the lightweight weave it drapes nicely. I have not washed it yet (trying to avoid doing so) but will hand wash/dry flat when I do. This sweater smells only faintly of wool (a gripe of mine with new-wool sweaters is that lanolin smell),and my only complaint so far is that it does start to pill after several wearings,although the pills are fluffy and fairly loose so they are easy to pull off. For reference,I'm 5'10",145-ish lbs,36-29-39 and I went with a Medium in this sweater which provides quite a relaxed fit (which I was looking for,for layering).

October 4, 2017

Don't listen to new size recommendation

I just received this sweater in a size small. I find that I wear a small or medium (6 or 8) in Patagonia products depending on the item. Since a sweater is stretchy and this was listed as regular fit,I chose small and it was the correct choice. Even the small is quite roomy for me (5'4',140 lb,small bust). Patagonia's new size query ... Read Moresystem recommended a medium,which would have been too big. I got the sweater in birch white which is a nice warm off white. Crew neckline is roomy and comfortable. My only quibble (thus 4 stars) is that I would have preferred it to be a bit more fitted at the hips. instead it is quite loose at the bottom even with a lightweight flannel shirt and jeans.

September 11, 2017

Feminine and soft,but snug forearms

I really like this sweater. Its feminine and soft,and I love that its recycled. However,the forearms are snug which made them slightly itchy. I tried the small since I have a 34 chest,I'll try the medium next.
