Pills so so so bad
I just opened this sweater within the last two hours. I tried it on and off a couple of times because I am deciding whether or not to keep it, and it’s already pilled so bad! I am shocked, for $168 dollars I don’t know how this quality was approved. I will be returning 100 percent, as it is awful and does not look good at all.

Cannot be washed
I washed this sweater on delicate and laid it flat to dry, and it shrunk into a toddlers sweater. I love the look of the sweater, but I think the only way to clean it is the dry cleaner. So disappointed. I'll give it to my 10 year old niece.

Beautiful, but cannot be washed
This was my favourite sweater. Beautiful drape and quality. Then I washed it. Gentle cycle, cold water, air dried, just like I do for all my wool prices. It shrunk so small that I gave it to my 8 year old niece. I wish I could buy it again, but I don’t want to waste my money again.

Storybook to Live in
I absolutely love this sweater. Paired with the rythym jumper and some uggs or even Conan pants and loafers I could lounge in the house with this or wear it to the office
My 2nd storybook cardigan loved it so much needed a 2nd Color.

Good cardigan!
For all the girls thinking of buying this cardigan: it's really worth it! I tried to wash it without any problem. The secret: use a detergent designed for merino wool (found on Amazon for about ten dollars). It's the best way to keep real wool durable.

Shrinks a lot :(
This was my favorite cardigan and I’ve had this for about a month now and I don’t normally write reviews but I went back to this cardigan after washing it for the first time since I’ve had it and it shrunk like crazy. My experience is similar to the most recent review and I’m so sad that this cost me so much yet it shrank like crazy. Did a cold wash and air dry too. It’s just really disappointing spending so much money on clothes you hope would last a while due to the price just for it to shrink after one wash.

Crazy shrinkage!
Usual size is 2XS. Decided to size up for a more relaxed look.
Washed with cold water on delicate (usually fine with all my knit wear). No dryer used.
Mild detergent and no fabric softener.
It shrank to a child's size! With one wash!! Never happened with any other Aritzia sweater.

Most underrated cardigan at Aritzia
This is a beautiful piece. I love that it’s less oversized than the unwind but still long enough to cover your butt. It buttons up which is nice, but I don’t kinda wish it had pockets. That being said pockets add a lot of bulk in this type of knit so I think it does give a slimmer profile compared to unwind. The Heather birch is stunning. Yes, it pills a little but nothing more than expected for Aritzia wool. Measurements 37-29-39, I got a small which is my usual size in Aritzia oversized pieces.
