This was one of the items in my first ever purchase from Wool&. I will be traveling to Scandinavia in May and needed garments for the cold days we will experience in the mountains and fjords yet ones that will work nicely for the warmer (but not hot) evenings in the several capital cities. This is a lovely design and a finely made sweater. It feels lightweight while wearing it and packs small, yet is very comfortable in warmth and fit. It looks nice over slacks and tops and over dresses and tunics. It is a flattering silhouette and length, hitting me about mid-thigh. It currently is winter here in Michigan and I already am finding this cardigan a perfect choice, both for dress up and casual events.
I am a huge fan of Wool& and already own a number of their pieces. For a long time I’ve been looking for a merino replacement for my old work blazers, now that I’m going back into the office sometimes, but I had very specific requirements. I needed it to be something soft and comfy, as I was not interested in going back to structured and uncomfortable blazers that I can barely move in after working from home for so long! I wanted something unlined as I’m always hot, something that would not wrinkle if I needed to stuff it into my bag, and something that would fold down compactly. I’m an attorney and work in a fairly formal office environment. I thought this cardigan would be a bit too casual looking based on the photos, but I could not have been more wrong. It drapes beautifully and has enough structure in the way the shoulders are stitched to make it look a bit more formal than other cardigans I own. It has a collar that looks a lot like some of my looser blazers, and that helps with making it look a bit more formal. Yet at the same time, it looks great with jeans or leggings. This is definitely a new staple for me.
My first order was for a black Landmark but I then bought one in gray and one in navy. I will be wearing these every day I go into the office.
Please, please add more colors!! A light tan color would round out my “staples” nicely, but red, burgundy, and/or purple would be fabulous as well. I would grab any new colors in a heartbeat.
I ordered this not sure if it would fit. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with Wool& on their plus size garments.
I love wool& dresses, leggings and cardigans. This cardigan is wonderful and goes from clinic to toddler play date and back again. I just wish there were more colors! Like bring back at least burgundy please. If I could change one thing I wish the sleeves were an inch of so longer but still wearable as is.
Lightweight but warm
