Rated 4 out of 5 by tippitoes Not the softest Aran Craft
I purchased this sweater probably about a year or more ago. I put it on for the first time two days ago and WOW - quite scratchy! I have MANY Aran Craft sweaters and always love that they are so soft straight out of the package. Not so with this one! I got the light mint green - color is very pretty, pattern is lovely, construction is fine. I don't mind that the buttonholes are not "finished" as I am a knitter and realize that this is a very common method for buttonholes. But the wool itself did not feel like the regular merino wool I was accustomed to with their sweaters. At first I thought maybe it was just regular wool but the label says MERINO. So I looked at it more closely and saw there were still traces of dried brush in it. Maybe this merino just wasn't washed and carded thoroughly. So I washed it in my machine (YES you can WASH wool but you must do it correctly!), let it dry and tried it on again. MUCH softer- I may give it another wash to soften a tad more. But overall I am very pleased with the style.

This is very classic and feels just as soft as hand-knit ones. Fit is just right. Good value.
I am very glad I bought it.

This is just the coziest most wonderful Irish woolen sweater imaginable. My daughter is going to Dublin in July and she said she would bring me a "real Irish Sweater". I showed her my QVC gem and told her not to worry as I have a true Irish woolen knit sweater and that is no leprechaun story.....I did send the first one back, as they fit large, and got a smaller size.

Based on other reviews and the video, I was excited to purchase a "berry" red sweater for Christmas. I've always liked Aran Craft cardigans (and have a few colors), so I had no hesitation ordering. Yes, only the first two button holes are finished, but I haven't ever had a problem with that; I often wear cardigans open like a knit jacket. Yes, these sweaters run large. I always have to cuff the sleeves, and being short, this is tunic length on me. All of that would be fine, but the red color isn't "berry" at all. When I tried it on I looked like a big tomato with legs. I'm pale and blonde; it might be more flattering on someone with darker skin/hair. The style might also be more flattering on someone tall. I'm so disappointed, as I'd planned to wear this for Christmas.

Just love my sweater. It's so comfortable and warm. The fit is perfect for me and I am 5' 9" . I usually have trouble getting my sleeves long enough but this fits perfectly! This is the third Aran sweater I have purchased from QVC. My only complaint is that just the top button hole is finished. For the price of the sweater all of the button holes should be finished. Hope QVC gets on this problem right away because I want to purchase many more of these sweaters!

Absolutely beautiful... I did order a size smaller than normal and it fits perfectly.
This is my second Aran Craft sweater... I will order more. The color is true. I ordered the light violet. The biggest plus is that the sleeves are long enough for me. Normally tops are a little short in the sleeve but this is wonderful.
The sweater arrived in just a few days after my order. I appreciate having the ability to view the presentation that was on the QVC program. Seeing it being worn on the models helps to make my decision. I can see how long the sweater is, the colors, and the way it looks when on a person. All of these sweaters are beautiful. Not itchy, light weight, and warm.

Love the quality of the sweater. Terribly disappointed that only the top button hole was finished. Would have thought for this quality and price it would have been. When the button holes unravel, how or better yet why do I have to fix it? Won't buy another.

This is my second Aran sweater and I am sure it not be my last. I will say it does run large.....I bought an xxs......only because they sold out of xs. I am glad they did, the xxs fits perfectly. My usual size is a 6.
I got the pale pink....wow....such a lovely and feminine color.
