"What I've Wanted Forever"

This is exactly the sweater I've dreamed of having but couldn't afford. Through Novica the cost was significantly lower. I just received my sweater and it's perfect. I love it. The wool is so soft and at the same time substancial. I felt wrapped in a loving hug when I tried it on. And it's also true to size. One minor thing: In the photo the green appears to be a bit olive but in person it's forest green. I still love it and will wear it for the rest of my life.

Best Uses
  • I live in the northern mountains of New Mexico where we have very cold winters
  • This sweater will keep me warm

"Beautiful sweater - a must have for cold weather"

I purchased this sweater and I'm thrilled with it. It is extremely warm and the stitching is intricate. The fit is loose which makes it very comfortable. I thought I would try the green sweater for something different and I really like it. It is a darker green than expected but still beautiful. I absolutely love this sweater.

"Love it!"

I ordered the green. The wool is soft, the color is gorgeous, and the fit is perfect. As a tall woman, I especially appreciate being able to order an XXL. I loved it so much, i ordered another one in grey.

"Beautiful forest green color"

I hesitated on purchasing this because the color of just the green sweater is very different from the color on the model standing outdoors. It looks just like the color on the model, a beautiful rich dark forest green. It fits me beautifully. I just hope it washes up when needed because I hate the chemicals used for dry cleaning.

"Truly lovely quality sweater with a rich look"

After reading the other reviews, I can agree that the sweater probably runs what some would consider 'loose'. However, I think that is part of the look of this sweater and to wear it more snugly would ruin the hang and the look. It is not heavy when you wear it, but there's no lack of material or cheap feel of a skimpy wool. The knitting is wonderful; intricate with varying patterns that add to the fine quality look. I thought even the buttons were well chosen for a classic, timeless appearance. Versatile, too. It can be worn casually or more dressed up. I purchased the Natural and the color is excellent - not too white, not too yellow. I'll be able to wear this with nearly any other color. Warm enough to be very useful, but not so heavy that it needs to be frigid to be worn. I'm very happy with this purchase. There was no issue with an unusual smell with my sweater.

"My Daily Go To"

Love the rich, charcoal gray color of this warm, soft sweater. Goes with EVERYTHING! Beautifully made and finished. Perfect for the cooler fall days and nights, and will transition beautifully into winter until parkas are required.

Best Uses
  • With the temperate winters we have in Tennessee, this may serve as my winter coat

"Love this sweater "

I have loved this sweater for a long time but have been afraid of how it might fit! Finally, ordered it from Novica. The style and fit was perfect! It was at a reasonable price and authentic in every way! I receive many comments and complements each time I wear it! CM
