Cute and versatile sweater

This sweater is versatile for casual wear or work. I wear a silk liner under it and there is zero itch. Its super warm but breathes well. The fit is flattering.

November 28, 2023

Perfect mid-layer weight, gorgeous color

The weight of this sweater (I purchased Lagom Blue) is perfect for a mid-layer: not too light, not too heavy/bulky. Size S sweater fits perfectly under my size S jackets. The collar is double the material - it won't stretch or lose its shape. Color is as it appears on website. I couldn't be happier! I purchase a few things I love and plan... Read More to have them for a lifetime. This is one of those things!

Traditional, warm wool sweater.

Very warm and cozy. I could wear alone on a mild winter day if I was active. Fit is perfect for me. Plenty of room to layer. I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs. I'm pleased with my purchase.

November 11, 2023

Favorite sweater

Great sweater. I wear it with slacks in the office, jeans on the weekend, and a mid layer on hikes.

Updated review - great sweater

At first when I bought this sweater I bought it in a size medium and it was a bit too large and just didn't love it (I'm 5'7" and 130 lb). I eventually traded it in for a size small and this has become my absolute favorite sweater. I bought it in another color too. The sweater has a great loose fit but still very shapely and I l... Read Moreove the collar, it gives it structure. It's a very neat/clean cut looking sweater. The weight is great for everyday wear. I don't get too hot but I don't get cold in this. Great 3 seasons sweater. It is a little cumbersome to wash by hand but I wear it many times first (always with a t-shirt underneath) and it doesn't require washing much because it's wool.

Surprisingly Comfortable Wool Sweater

I was prepared to be annoyed with the wool content in this sweater. At some point, folks complain about wool sweaters being itchy. Yes, I do wear a long-sleeve shirt underneath. Yes, I would not want it next to my bare skin for any length of time. But, it is very warm without the weight. The cut is stylishly boxy. Nicely oversized. The quality of t...

Thick, high quality wool & beautiful retro knitting.

I'm in love with my retro gray and green, alpine design sweater. The small and extra small were too tight for me so I opted for a medium, which is probably too slouchy for most people but I like it for my casual wear. Get the small if you want to use it as an inside layer. I'm 61, 5'2" and 115 lbs. Wearing this brings me back to... Read More the '70s and '80s and it's a good thing. The returns for the ones didn't fit were super easy with the friendly and straight forward process. Thank you, Patagonia.

March 13, 2023

Cozy sweater

Bought this mostly for the recycled wool, but very happy with the fit, color and quality. I wear US 18 or 20, so was thrilled that the XL fit at all. The cut is generous enough to wear over long sleeves without being too big to wear under a coat. The arm length is excellent for my longer arms. The sweater hits mid-hip on me. I got the green and cre... Read Moream pattern and it is a very nice color, very true to the pictures. The cut is boxy, but that works for me. This is a good one. I feel like I wont need to buy a winter sweater again for awhile.

Classic fit and toasty

The fit is classic. Enough room for a serious base layer.

My go to sweater this winter

I have been wearing this sweater non stop this winter. Around the house, around the ski cabin, under a shell on a walk, it has made its way out and about with me. I have a the patterned natural sapling color and enjoy the diversity it brings to my generally solid color sweater line up. I would say it is slightly more boxy, rather than a slim fittin... Read Moreg sweater, which I understood when I bought it based upon reviews by others. As expected, it wasn't overly boxy for my expectations, but rather met the idea of a comfy, not tight/slim fitting and also not overly big and loose. It is more standard wool, with slight scratchy feel than the recycled cashmere (which I also love), but nothing a shirt beneath doesn't handle. Love it so far.

February 14, 2023

Weird fit

Overall a nice sweater. I got the patterned one and it was nice and thick and warm, though a tad itchy. I originally bought the XS (my usual size in Patagonia) and it was a smidge too tight in the shoulders/arms. Ordered in the S and found it to fit better in the shoulder and arms, but too wide in the torso (but about the same short length as the X... Read MoreS). Overall, I was not a fan of the boxy torso fit but tight arms/shoulder, and the itchiness. I ended up returning.

February 12, 2023

A perfect wool sweater

To me, this is the perfect, classic wool sweater. I ordered a large which is a bit baggy on my frame (curvy). I wear it under my ski shell jacket (Patagonia Triolet) and it keeps me toasty. It is an ideal fit and just wooly enough to remind you that our ancestors were on the right track when they domesticated sheep.

A comfy sweater for years to come

Its wool so it is little scratchy. An undershirt is a must. But so warm and comfy. I can see this being a go to for cool outdoor activities for years to come. Originally got a medium but my DD did not fit so I sized up.

January 24, 2023

Too boxy, unfortunately

The yarn is lovely, it's super thick and warm and the pattern is great, but the cut for me was just way too boxy. Boxy is cute, but this was too wide and fit really weird when I moved around. I'm on the slim side with broad shoulders and have trouble fitting Patagonia women's stuff - such a bummer. Returning.

Thank you so much for writing this review Mila! We would also like to extend our sincere apologies to hear that this purchase led to a return due to the fit being too boxy. Please rest assured that we will be passing along this feedback to our Product Designers so they can take a deeper look into the fit of this product.

January 20, 2023

So great

I can wear it teaching without an under shirt and it doesn't itch and its not too warm. I can wear it outside in the cold with an undershirt and it keeps me so warm! I love the fit- its very cute and flattering.

January 7, 2023

Cozy & sturdy

Got this in a medium, its loose but not oversized. The kind of sturdy sweater your grandma wore but in a cool way!

January 7, 2023

Very warm

I love the pattern on this sweater. It is comfortable but I had to wear a tank as it is a little scratchy, but not bad.

December 19, 2022

Beautiful warm sweater

I bought the blue-green patterned colorway (on a cream background) after seeing it in store. The weight and warmth are a little extra, which is exactly what I was looking for. The fit is slightly cropped; I sized up from a M to a L so I could layer underneath, and that helped me get a little bit more length in the torso. This is my first recycled w...

If your skin is super duper sensitive, you may want to try this on before purchasing, but Im very comfortable with a t shirt or other thin layer underneath.

perfect sweater

It fits true to size at the shoulders, with a comfortable amount of looseness throughout, so it hangs nicely without feeling stuffy. It's great as a single layer on chilly days, and could be useful in the real cold. It's not too thick or too hot, but keeps me warm. It is also very soft. I've been wearing it every day for a week.

perfect classic wool sweater!

This sweater has the perfect classic crewneck fit that is somehow so hard to find these days.

Warm & flattering!

This is my favorite sweater that I own. It is flattering and not bulky. It's a relaxed fit, with enough room to wear a base layer if needed.

A great all-around casual sweater

A great all-around casual sweater and warm to boot. Wish it came in other colors.

Super itchy right at the neck.

I like the weight of it, but the neck is so small and itchy. I cannot wear a t-shirt underneath it that will block the wool from the skin on my neck.

Great layering sweater!

Love this sweater (although my dog managed to snag it with his claws ). It is perfect to wear when there is a chill in the air, but it is also very lightweight.

Nice old-school wool sweater

Wonderful old-school wool sweater that is actually hard to find these days. People have gotten away from wearing wool sweaters in favor of synthetic fleece and it's a shame.

Hi Rashee! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that you found the sweater to be too itchy. If you're sensitive to wool this may not be the sweater for you. That said, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

Very Versatile

This sweater is a classic. Everyone needs one. It's warm but not hot. Great with a underlayer and pretty much goes with everything. Can be worn casual or dressed up. It is classic pullover fit. I can wear both an XS and a S in this sweater and both look just fine. The Small fell a little longer on me and was a little roomier. But the XS looked... Read More great too and I am still able to put a layer on under it. I have not washed it yet so not sure if it will shrink but I launder everything in cold and will lay it out flat to dry. The blue was a classic navy. Can't go wrong with this piece.

March 15, 2022

Comfy, warm awesome sweater

This a great sweater that seems like a timeless piece. It's warm and fits well. Need to wear a shirt underneath as it is wool but that is to be expected. Happy about this purchase.

February 28, 2022

Ugh, so boxy and short

I wish wish wish this had fit. I know u would have worn out all the time. Unfortunately, it was so dang short on the body that it could have been midfriff if I'd washed it.

A Light Delight

For me, this is a great wool piece. It's quite a lightweight weave which I like, I have other wool sweaters that are heavier if I want the extra bulk/warmth.

Response from Patagonia
December 13, 2021

Thank you for the review, Jessica. We're very sorry to hear of the premature pilling. With knit items, friction is usually what can cause this to happen, so that is something you'll want to keep in mind. With that said, your satisfaction is our number one priority, and you are welcome to send the item back to us for warranty evaluation. To begin this process, please click [here](

Warm and Cozy

I love the recycled wool sweater that I bought, with the pattern around the top. Its a heavy weight, which feels like Im wearing two sweaters, which help me a lot because at my age I get cold very often. Also, it is gray and that is my favorite color.

Love this sweater!

I'm 5'3", 128 lbs and got the medium. It fits a little looser than I though it would, but I'm happy with it. I think a small would fit me just fine too, just more form fitting.

Just okay

I purchased the brown and the cable pattern is pretty. I usually like to wear my sweaters oversized and wear an M in Patagonia but this material was too thin to have a cute chunky oversized look so it just looked large and shapeless on me.

This is a gorgeous sweater in a beautiful color (I got the Topsoil Brown) with a classic cut. Fit is true to size for a crew, and I can still layer underneath.

October 13, 2021

So cute, but so itchy

I wanted to love this so badly because the fit, style, and brown color are all perfect, however, it is EXTREMELY itchy. I tried it on and wore it for about 4 minutes before I had to take it off. I wish I could make it work because it is very cute, but it felt like I was torturing my skin so unfortunately I will be returning it.

Beautiful, but fabric isn't great

5/5 for the style and fit. It's a beautiful sweater, I love the pattern, and the brown color is perfect.

I was expecting more from Patagonia. I am not at all sensitive to natural fibers, but this sweater was incredibly itchy and irritating just while trying it on. Not soft at all. I wouldn't have made it through the day with any of my skin exposed to the fabric. I've had this issue with Patagonia wool in the recent past as well. I was really hoping to switch to Patagonia over mall brands for my casual sweaters, but I guess I've learned my lesson to avoid Patagonia wool for the foreseeable future.
