Aran Craft Merino Wool Button Front Long Cardigan
This is one of three Irish knit sweaters I ordered on St. Patrick's day. It arrived quickly and was just what I'd hoped it would be. We had planned a trip to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival and had hoped it would take the place of a coat, which it did! I love the color and ladies, definitely go one or two sizes down because these are generously knit.
I kept it with me on the plane and didn't need to bring my extra blanket! Can't wait for Rose of Tralee! It'd be a great gift for grandmother or daughter alike. The red is a true, clear red without the pink or brown tones sometimes evident in sweaters.
I really like this sweater but I am salty about the buttons. They are sewn on poorly. I have already lost one. I am not happy about that. The cost of this sweater is not cheap. I would have expected that the buttons would have been sewed on more secure than they are. Debating on sending it back for a replacement. I shouldn't have to make sure all the buttons aren't going to fall off within the first month of owning the sweater.
Not Too Happy
I wanted this sweater to replace an older sweater I have had for some time but the sizing on this one was off. I ordered a large and it was huge. My last sweater was a medium and was becoming a little snug but the large does not work.
Great Feeling Sweater
This was a great feeling and beautifully made sweater; it runs a little large and in the end I had to return it but definitely will try it again and buy the right size now that I am aware.
Larger than expected
I ordered my regular size, but it fit really large. I would have had to roll the sleeves 3 times for them to be the right length. It fit through the shoulders but everywhere else was oversized. I would have needed to be a lot taller for it to work.
I love this sweater. It fits great and warm, very pretty.
I would give it 5 stars if it had pockets! Bought the red and it is stunning.
Larger than anticipated
Upon opening the package, the sweater in of itself is absolutely beautiful. You can also call it a 'peridot' green.
The sleeves were extra long I turned the edges of the cuffs back.
However, putting it on, this type of green is overpowering for the size of the sweater. The color would go well with a shorter sweater. I am looking for a spring jacket...and we have the rains. I would not hand wash this, because of the length and concern for stretching over time.
But as far as its beauty, quality, warmth, comfort with no itching, if you prefer to wear a long cardigan and the yellow tone of the leaf green with that amount of sweater, it is an excellent buy.
My sister would have bought it from me if she were able at this time.
This sweater is beautiful. I purchased the green, what a gorgeous color. It is soft and warm, I wore it today and it's 45 degrees in NJ. I am a 1x and ordered the XL. It runs big, so size down if you order it. There is a light order, but my experience with good wool is it will have a little order but will wear off. I have two other sweaters similar to this that I order from QVC and I love them all.
Gorgeous and so soft
I ordered this is XXS red (I'm 5'5" 135 lbs). The fit is perfect and it is a gorgeous sweater, wish I had gotten two when it was the one time only and on easy pay. The wool is super soft and not itchy at all. I have several Aran Craft sweaters and all have the same softness. A definite keeper.
beauty of an irish sweater
just received the grey sweater and I must admit it is a
beauty!!! the gray color is a rich shade and the detail
is beautiful!!! it will be a spring or fall coat......or anytime
sweater to take that chill off...I do like the length as it would
be called three quarter ...love it!!
This is my first purchase of this product and I must say, I am happy I purchased two...wish I had purchased more. Well made, feels soft, worth the price. Not itchy at all. Thanks QVC and vendor for bringing this to us. Now I have to increase my collection.
