This sweater is warm, and true to size. I normally wear an XLT and the arms were the perfect length for me (this may be a problem if you have really short arms). The cut is tight enough so that it does look baggy, but loose enough that it doesnâ€™t look like you are wearing spandex (going back to me wearing an XLT, no one wants to see that).
The other reviewer is correct; this is â€˜woolâ€™ wool, and on the itchy side, but after an hour or so it was not a problem. I own a few wool sweaters, and I love that this one comes with a faint lanolin smell. Thatâ€™s something you donâ€™t get from the name brands at the big box stores.

If you've never owned wool, you should buy it!

First of all, I must say that it is real itchy at first. After a couple days of wearing it and always feeling irritated I was about to call to return it. Then on the third day I got used to it and began to love it. I ride my bike to work every day and morning is the coldest time of day. On days when I used to wear a sweater underneath a light jacket now I only need the wool sweater. And when I get to work I don't need to even take it off because it doesn't overheat. It looks nice and I've received compliments on the sweater. I bought the Large and it is bigger than I expected. If I was trying to look stylish, I would wear a Medium. But I'm happy with it fitting real loose. After a couple of months of owning this sweater I wear it as much as I can. It just is a scratchy sweater, though. (even after giving it a bath in conditioner) And, because my arms are sensitive, it has to be worn over long sleeve shirts only. I would recommend this sweater experience to a friend
