Third purchase of this sweater -
By: redhot from I'm 67 and live in Kalamazoo, Mi
Love, love, love, this Countryside Cashmere Cardigan. I have 3, powder blue, camel, and charcoal. They are very warm and wash well. I use a very gentle cycle cold water and smooth out and lay out to dry and they come out beautiful. I do like when I can get the petite size as it fits perfect for me. These sweaters are a staple in my wardrobe and go with almost everything. My next color will be black. They have small pockets which is convienent too. Thanks Orvis again !!!!
lovely sweater -
By: Loty from Cincinnati, OH
This sweater is very warm and a heavy quality cashmere. However, I didn't look at the description carefully before I ordered. When it arrived with the ribbed arms and yolk, I was surprised so I returned it. It was more casual than I wanted. I do recommend the sweater. It just was not what I wanted.

Your countryside cashmere cardigans get me through each winter. Just love them. Thank you. Just wish they would occasionally go on sale!
The perfect sweater ruined -
By: waterbaby from New York, NY
I am agreeing with many others who have written that the new changes to this sweater are not an improvement. I thought it was absolutely perfect before and would have bought several more (I have two), but not now. I hate the ribbing and the snugger fit. Please change it back!
Unexpected Changes -
By: TexasSophisticate from Houston, TX
I have purchased the Countryside Cashmere Cardigan in 2 different colors in the past and have absolutely LOVED that sweater. The longer length is great and the style is very classy. However I was most disappointed when I received my recent purchase in a third color. The sleeves are now ribbed as well as the yoke across the back, and it detracts from the classy style of the original design. I would not purchase it again because of this new design. Too bad it had to change. The shorter version is like the original design, but is too short for me. Very disappointed.
Waited kwo years for this sweater to come back, new narrow cut has changed the way it fits and hangs. The one from the past was more of a jacket. Have 2 and love them.

Our fits are being revised in response to overwhelming customer requests and while we regret that you are disappointed with the pared-down fits of this particular best seller, we hope that you will continue to shop with us and give our updated designs another chance.
The "old" styling of this sweater was greatly preferable to this season's styling. Don't like the ribbed sleeves at all, or the new length. Just not as wonderfully warm comfortable as the one I bought last year.
Great quality -
Gave this as a gift and my wife could not have been happier. The fit was perfect and the cashmere had a soft yet durable feel
Agree, definitely not same sweater -
I have a few of these sweaters from past years. I was hoping to get one in every color available! They are my favorite sweater. However, I just ordered and received it this week. By no means is the sweater the same as past years. The sleeves are ribbed. Hate this look. It is more casual looking than the past styles. The sleeves are also snug compared to previous style. I will not be adding all the colors to my wardrobe due to the current style.
Favorite winter cardigan -
By: WhiteRaven from Little Rock, AR
i love the design of this cardigan! The neck buttons up high to keep out cold, or can be left unbuttoned and open and worn with a scarf. The cut is roomy without being oversized. And the length is perfect--long enough to cover everything but still be a flattering proportion for a shorter person. And there are pockets! Love the softness and warmth of the cashmere. This is my second cardigan. I have had the first for three years. It has been worth every cent. Thank you Orvis for this beautiful garment!
