I bought two different colors of this sweater. I love the styling and the thickness of the cashmere, but the cashmere has pilled significantly after only a few wearings. I have had to repeatedly de-pill it, with only fair results. I have a number of cashmere sweaters from other companies and have not had as much of an issue with pilling.
This sweater is a must have, I wear it with everything from midi skirts to jeans!
Love the color (frosted opal) & the fabric is fine although somewhat flimsy. But overall I'm disappointed, for the first time ever, in a Pure purchase. Unfortunately the size choices lumped 14-16 together. I'm mostly size 12. In a sweater I go a size larger because of being full busted. Having to deal with the 16 size included in order to get a 14, it's simply not a good fit. It hangs shapelessly at the bottom & it's way too wide at the neck. I've learned my lesson. Too much hassle to return, but I won't order anything again, if 2 sizes are lumped together.
I have three of these sweaters, in rose mist, cobalt and cream and love them. I've long arms, but haven't found the sleeves too short. I bought the first (cream) one at the York shop: was warned it could be slightly large and that I must expect it to pill. I sized accordingly and after washing use my little pill-removing machine (like a man's razor) and restore its finish. The lofty knit is warm, soft and comfortable.
This is a really beautiful sweater. I have it in three colours, Lilac + Iced Grey which were gifts. I also purchased it in Frosted Opal. The shorter length is perfect and the looser fit makes it casual, comfortable and stylish with jeans / casual trousers at weekends. I love the new season's colours, especially the blue!
Just love this jumper. Good thickness and light to wear. Warmth without weight. Bought light grey in the Spring. Now that the colour range has expanded I will buy another. Perfect fit for me. I like a neat fit, so bought one size smaller.
If 'lofty' means thick and warm, then this is not it! Nowhere near the quality I expected from PURE. Very disappointed and will be returning.
A lovely, comfortable sweater for casual wear, very soft and warm as the weather gets colder. Very little pilling, washes well. I bought Rose Mist from the summer catalogue ( a pretty, delicate colour) and have just ordered Soft Cobalt from the current catalogue. Length is exactly as stated, but as previous reviewers have found, sleeves are a little short : not a problem as, like another reviewer, I always push them up.
This sweater feels lovely to wear. It has just the right amount of looseness to it and looks great with jeans or tight fitting skirts. I now have two and hope to buy more! The sleeves are a little on the short side, but as I tend to pull sleeves back, this does not bother me.
I know other reviews have said the sleeves are too short etc, but if you are a petite fit this is fab. The sleeve length and fit are great for me, (5'3"") I love it. Have in 2 colours now and looking at next favourite colour to buy next. Please keep it in the range Pure. I love it.
Wanted to buy this in lilac so much but it was HUGE and made for very short people - I'm not 5ft 3"" and I don't think that it reflects all of us. If Pure continue to think this is the case and persist in thinking they are right about everything, then perhaps they should come and look at who buys their products - we are not all short and large (and in denial about it)! I gave the sweater 3 stars as it is a lovely colour and good quality but 5 starts would need the sizing to be true to size and to have, perhaps, two different lengths, so that this sort of style actually comes down to my backside!
I wanted it to be a summer jumper and it is a perfect fit! I love the Rose Mist colour, the jumper is quite thick, you cannot see through, feels very comfortable and looks stylish. The sleeves are not very long and the garment length is more of a cropped jumper. But since I wanted it to be a summer jumper I love that it's fine with me. I have not washed it yet, I hope it would be a good quality. Thinking to buy one in White colour now, its' such a versatile jumper!
I can't fault this sweater, surprised others have found problems. I can't speak about longevity as I've just received it, but my other Pure sweaters have all worn well. Pure has great customer service so I know one can always discuss any problems with them too. I'm normally a 12 and the 12 fits me perfectly, I did buy a 14 too, as in the past I have found some Pure sweaters to be on the small side, that has gone back. Length great, just to hip, loose but not too loose, nice raglan styling which I love rather than set in sleeves for a casual look. Wish I could have another one in a light colour, but the black is classy and will see me through the scottish summer! Haha.
Sadly this jumper was an odd fit.The sleeves were too short but it was too big .I loved the jumper in cream but if I sized down the sleeves would have possibly been shorter
Very similar to an M & S style I have which only comes in cream. I bought this one, in pink. It's very soft and slightly boxy so trendier than the classic styles but the sizing is odd. I'm a standard 12 but the 12 here was too short in both the body and the sleeves. I had to size up to get what I'd expect as a normal fit. This seems to be a feature with this brand. Nice jumper but 3 stars only due to the fit issues and also it's slightly transparent.
