The Story

This Luxe Fair Isle Crewneck Sweater is the type that will make you look forward to cold and snowy winter days. The lofty Fair Isle pattern stands out from the rest of the body, giving it dimension and a rich look, while the body feels supersoft and cozy thanks to a blend of long-staple merino wool and yak fibers, a downy wool that's combed to be as soft and warm as cashmere. Styled with a crewneck, raglan sleeves for roomy comfort, and a straight hem. In charcoal.

Merino/yak/baby alpaca/nylon. Hand wash or dry clean. Imported.

Sizes XS(4), S(6-8), M(10-12), L(14-16), XL(18-20); about 24" long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Fit! Adoring the flannel shirt I purchased underneath the sweater! I saw the denim shirt and paired the blue flannel instead! Looks and mostly...FEELS warm and comfortable...not too much sweater. The color will go lovely with any hair color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft This Luxe Fair Isle sweater is perfect. I wanted a warm, stylish pullover but I hate itchy wool and tight or high necks. The neck is generous without being sloppy (it is a little tighter than what is shown in the photo - just enough to show the neck of a t-shirt under it) and the wool is a soft as cashmere. The first time I wore it out, I received three compliments on my "beautiful" sweater. I ordered an XS as I usually do, and the fit is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and warm! Fabulous. Although I am a small, I got the medium in order to wear it over a very, very thick turtleneck. Perfect. The yoke is super soft—feels almost like angora. It is now officially my favorite sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUY IT! This is the softest, coziest, warmest, not-binding sweater ever. No, it's not hot. It is smooth and soft against my skin. Non-restrictive loose fit. Don't laugh. I wore it last night, and day-dreamed of wearing it again today because the warmth feels like I've been warmed in a tub of water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous soft feel, bulky with wide neckline The feel of the yak fur is amazingly soft and the wool/yak combination so luxurious yet feels stronger and thicker than cashmere! I sized up to wear layers underneath, and ended up returning it for my regular size: the sweater is bulkier than it looks in photos. The sweater neckline is quite wide, so T-shirt under-layers show: T-neck is OK, crew neckline is awkward, and V-neck looks horrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed Got this sweater last year in a large and loved it. Lost weight and wanted one in a smaller size so ordered it in a medium. Fit was good but the stitching on the back where the seams for the arm and the shoulder come together were terribly done. Returned it and my husband ordered another one. Same issue with that one, so returned it again. I dove an hr to an Orvis store and they don’t carry them in stock. Super bummed out had to pay shipping twice and had to return it both times. Quality control needs to improve.
