My new favourite closet stapleI love this sweater. Very thick and a retro waffle look. It didn’t appeal to me really in the photos and then I saw it on someone else in a better light and fell in love. I don’t even wear the off-white colour normally, but this is an exception. I also bought the black since both were on sale. It does say dry clean only - half wool half cotton. At least the black won’t show dirt. Some of the Roots zip sweaters are harder to get over my head when taking off but not this one. I have already worn it on a cold April day out walking the dog. My companion was shivering but I was warm! And it’s true to size, no weird wide cut, not bulky but not tight. It’s somewhat form fitting compared to other Roots women’s tops I have bought lately. I normally wear a XS or S in Roots and chose a Small so I could wear a shirt under it if need be. This sweater will last me years and it’s a classic. Pullover waffle/zip sweaters are not easy to find for women, but this is a feminine cut and is cozy - perfect for Canadian women.

Wish it was less "fitted"I love the look of it, but it fits "just right" and I prefer a looser fit to my winter sweaters. It does ride up when I am out and about. Not the greatest fit. But I still wear it underneath jackets because the look is beautiful.

LoveIf you’re tired of hi-low hems, dropped shoulders and cropped sweaters, this totally fits the bill. Made of substantial all natural wool/cotton mix, it hits just at the right spot between waist and hip, fits great & lands somewhere between classic and cool. The waffle texture’s great & so is the zip collar. I’m 5-5, 128 lbs, got the S. Only downside? Got it before Black Friday.
