Love this sweater; lightweight but warm. I bought the black charisma sweater about a year ago and have worn it to death. The sky blue version is a little longer and more of a tunic, which suits my 5'9" frame perfectly. The design detail knit into the neckline is a nice touch. I had, though, hoped for more alpaca fiber in the yarn content.
I was excited to receive this poncho. The wool is soft, light weight and very warm. I saw in some reviews that people thought the wool was itchy. This would only be a problem if you are highly sensitive to natural fiber fabrics. The turtle neck makes this poncho great for wear in even the coldest of weather. The hood is wonderful and eliminates the need for a hat! I have found this poncho perfect to wear for running errands and travel in and out of the car. It keeps me very warm without the bulkiness of a heavy coat. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.
This sweater is beautiful: the white portions of the chevrons are a fluffy, long fiber angora blend which makes for a very warm and cozy sweater. The construction is impeccable as well - even the pockets are slipstitched closed until the purchaser opens them up, a detail that is usually found in expensive high end women's clothing and men's suiting. The problem I have with the sweater is that its shape is completely straight -no tapering in at the sides or slightly A-line and it's also very thick which can make you look shapeless. I'm 5'6" and have a toned athletic build, 127lbs. but I'm also a 36C on top. Because of my chest, this sweater makes me look pretty thick and bulky in my torso, something I'm not! Since the sweater is thick and cut so straight, it doesn't conform to one's shape and show any semblance of curves. I think it requires one to have a runway type build to look really good on - someone at least 5'9", very slender and with little or no chest. It's a shame because it feels so nice on and the blk/white chevron pattern was so modern and cool. Booh!
