Beautiful, yet flawedThis is a very thick and warm cardi. It is super huge though (I bought in store and so knew this when I purchased it, I am 5’9” and 125lbs and am still drowning in the XS). That being said I decided to tumble dry instead of hang to dry because I needed it to shrink, unfortunately after its very first wash the top inch of the right pocket came completely off of the seam! I know I probably should have followed care directions more closely, but really one voyage through a dryer should not completely ruin a garment! Very disappointed that it’s perceived quality didn’t translate in the stitching.

Just perfect for meI purchased this sweater on the Boxing Day sale and got an awesome deal. The fit of it is definitely different than a traditional cardigan, so if that’s what you’re hoping for you’ll be disappointed. It’s not meant to be a sleek fit, but boxy and casual. THE WAY IT'S PORTRAYED IN THE PHOTO IS ACCURATE. If you love that style like I do, you’ll love this sweater! The knit is gorgeous, super soft, thick and heavy. It will be bulky under a fitted coat or jacket. The Snowy Fox colour is a beautiful neutral icy gray/white mix that goes well with cooler colours. It's a 3 season sweater but will be especially nice for early spring days when you want the lighter colours but still need warmth. I normally take a take small or medium in Roots clothing depending on the style/fit. The description of the sweater doesn't include the fit, but it's definitely "boyfriend". I purchased a small based on this particular style and it's perfect. Very happy with this purchase!
