Same experience as others
I LOVED this sweater but I washed it, following the instructions and now it's unwearable because it shrunk so much. I would love to buy another if anyone knows how to wash it properly??

So comfy
I was impressed with how soft and cozy this cardigan is. I originally bought 1 and after trying it on and realizing how comfortable it was I ordered another one. It will be my travel cardigan because it is wears lightweight but feels warm on.

Great disappointment
I loved this loose fitting sweater … until I washed it. I followed all of the instructions - hand wash, cold, etc. and yet - it shrunk - unrecoverable. I have other merino wool sweater and none so fragile as this. $200 down the drain. Extremely disappointing and unacceptable from a quality perspective. I see now from the reviews, I’m not the only one who had this experience. :(

Ruined in the wash
Unfortunately the reviews are true - even when perfectly following the washing instructions, the cardigan shrunk and the material changed into something stiff and unwearable. So incredibly disappointed.

Careful when washing
I loved this cardigan and put off washing it since I got it because I was scared it would shrink after reading reviews. I washed it for the first time, in cold water and laid flat to dry... the material is completely changed and it shrunk. I can no longer wear it and I am so disappointed,

great disappointment...!!
At first when you buy it, the fit is really great. It was my favorite cardigan. But after washing it with all de recommendations (hand wash, cold and hung it to dry), it shrunk and now it is way too small to be wear. I am really disappointed and we can't count on Aritzia to help us, they say there's nothing they can do. I was hoping for it to last longer for the price that it was payed. It is not worth it.
