Aran Craft Merino Wool Button Front Cable Knit Cardigan
Beautiful Iran Craft Cardigan! The Best!
just the perfect weight. I LOVE everything about it! Wish it came in pastel colors for Spring. The shade of grey is so rich; can be worn for black easily. (Another style in black was very dark inky black. This wool shade is nicest.) So comfortable and a perfect style. Pockets are a bonus! I'm new to Iran Craft; wasn't sure of sizing. I usually buy L, sometimes XL, on the Q, but M in all the Iran Craft fit perfectly. Sadly returned a few other styles too heavy (and felt bulky.) This one is so much more soft and comfortable, especially for southern temps. Hoping next season Iran Craft offers more styles in this lighter weight knit. LOVE LOVE LOVE this cardi! Perfect when I don't want to wear a jacket outdoors and comfortable to wear indoors too -not bulky, just right! Can't say enough how nice this one is.
I WENT A LITTLE CRAZY ON THE SWEATERS ORDERED 6 DIFFERENT ONES AFTER READING ALL THE REVIEWS I WAS MORE CONFUSED THAN EVER WHAT I FOUND WAS VERY TRUE TO SIZE I WEAR A MEDIUM AND IT FIT THE WAS A SWEATER SHOULD HOWEVER I THOUGHT THE NECK NEEDED A LITTLE MORE BODY BUT WAS GEORGEOUS THE SWEATER I THOUGHT WAS MAGNIFICENT WAS A200715 IN GRAY
Ordered this sweater in a small and in green. The color is a beautiful shade, and the sweater is sooooo soft and very well made.
Love Aran Craft Sweaters!
It has become a tradition that I buy an Aran sweater every year. I have a wonderful collection. This is one of my favorites. I keep it at work and wear it all the time as it is always cold. If I'm not wearing it someone else is. Lol. Love my Irish Sweaters.
Classy sweater !
I bought this in the (cream) color, it's just beautiful. Can be worn dressy or casual. Not too heavy but keeps you really warm. The different stitching and design is a work of art, also the buttons add to this beauty. The sizing is perfect, I ordered a XXS and it fits great.
Not what I expected
I was very excited to finally get an Aran cardigan that I could afford, but when it arrived I found that it was very thin and came with a snag. The sizing also runs large, The color was very pretty but that was the only thing I found nice about this one! Back it went!! Won't be purchasing anymore of these sweaters in the future. Very Dissapointed!!
I ordered this sweater in the natural color and it keeps me very warm. I have found that this sweater runs a bit big, so please keep this in mind when ordering. Like others, after wearing it only a few times, I discovered I lost a button. The sweater is also pilling a little more than I expected. While I do like the sweater, I decided against ordering it in another color because for the price I paid, I should not have to worry about losing buttons. Care should be taken to ensure the buttons are on securely before being sent to a customer.
I love it, but...
This is the 2nd of 3 sweaters I ordered on St. Patrick's Day. I love the color and it looks good with jeans - I kind of worried about that. The manufacture is the usual great job done at Aran Craft - I have so many of their sweaters and love them all! Be very cautious though with moths - and do remember that mothballs are toxic to your furry pets. My "green" bug-man suggests placing these sweaters in the freezer for a week or having them dry cleaned as an alternative - even vacuuming them works well.
I usually place all my sweaters in one of the air-sealed bags (you can even get them from QVC!) once I'm sure our cold weather is over, so that's my project this week. I'm only sorry it will be a few months before I can get them out again!
The one thing I have an issue with is the buttons. On TV, they looked rather cheap and while they aren't horrible in person, you might do well by changing them for something that suits it more. This is a really rich color and the silvertone just doesn't do it. Even with new buttons, it's well worth the $$$ you will spend for it!
Love at first feel...
...actually, I own 3 Aran Craft items. Love them all. This one I exchanged for an XL instead of the XXL, does run a wee bit large. My only problem...the buttons....very loose. Reinforced them with the colored yarn included with the sweater so I didn't lose any buttons & would have to use the one they gave me.
My recommendation-> NOT is Cottage Farms Hibiscus tree. They consider this plant an annual. I've never known a tree to be an annual. These were beautiful last summer till brought indoors for the Ohio winter. They died & after going round & round with Cottage Farms, they will NOT replace or refund. DO NOT BUY!! Thank goodness for the wonderful QVC customer service!!
Beautiful but with issues
The color is perfect but the size in lengths runs small - sleeves and body length is much shorter than my other 7 (1-2 inches) ... But the color and workmanship....perfect..love it and keeping it
Best sweaters ever
I LOVE my Merino Wool sweaters - and have purchased 6 of them - giving two away to friends when I needed a smaller size after losing weight. I wore the royal blue to take my granddaughter for some surgery this week and two ladies stopped me and asked me where I got it. I need to get another soft green as I discovered when I put it on for Easter service that I need to have it in a small - so will be watching for it. I wear mine all year round - living close to the coast in the NW, summer days can be cool in the mornings and these are perfect. You cannot go wrong - I watch all of the Irish shows for the sweaters. I have been a QVC shopper since the beginning - most of my closet is QVC.
Pretty sweater but quality issues
I ordered the grey sweater during the St.Patrick's Day celebration. And unfortunately, like several other reviews, I received this sweater with the middle button in the bag. When inspecting the other buttons, I could tell that several of them are held on very loosely. I like the sweater enough to keep it and take it to a tailor and have the buttons re-enforced to ensure they don't fall off. But it's sad that I need to do this. I would definitely size down 1 size as this sweater runs big.
