I have recommended this cardi, but the jury is still out really! I'm not entirely sure! I bought this in the navy and it looks much better undone that done up. It is very good quality and a lovely colour, but the way the second colour is meant to show through on the piping makes it look like its a wee bit too small and stretching - sorry!

Lovely, useful cardi
The wool is soft and a little thicker than the Westbourne, so better for cold days, the pocket and placket lining is a khaki shade which matches a few things in my wardrobe. Pretty WS details as always, love this cardi!

This cardi is so soft, excellent quality and not itchy. I love the contrasting trims too. It looks great with the ascot skirt.

Just what I was looking for
The colour is just what I was looking for (the green one) so I'm happy with that. I love the style - it's very simple but still that bit different thanks to the poppers and the pale pockets.
I normally find WS sizes big, and get 8's for tops instead of 10's - but with this I am considering taking it into the shop and swapping for a 10 as it is a little bit smaller than I would like particularly when done up. So I would probably recommend not sizing down for this cardigan.

This is a generous fit with nice long sleeves. The colour is a lovely deep purple rather than blue and the contrast green placket/pockets are nice but it's itchy and synthetic and has noticeable white fibres - probably the angora bit- which stand out against the purple making look cheap.

Lovely, cosy, soft cardigans.
These cardi's are gorgeous! Very soft fabric, not at all itchy :) Colours are both lovely & fit well too.
Popper fastenings are really sweet, added bonus. Wish there were more colours; would certainly buy more; I love this style.

Lovely soft cardigan - great colour
Beautifully soft cardigan with an ideal neckline for the colder weather - not so low as some. Lovely deep blueberry shade with contrasting moss green in the pocket and placket. It has popper fastenings which are covered in dotty blue fabric and so cardigan looks good worn open too. I would say it's true to size - I wear size 8 or 10 generally and bought size 8 which fits perfectly with just a vest or light tee under. Goes well with the 'Multi' Painted Lady Butterfly scarf.

This cardigan is made from a medium to heavy knit and feels a little bit itchy on the skin. It also has too much synthetic fibres ( 40% ) for my taste. It would be great if we could get a "wooly" cardi with more than 10% wool like the men's cardis who have 100% merino wool and don't itch on the skin ( I tried one). I am really jealous of the men in that respect.
The blue cardi is a really nice strong medium blue. I really liked that colour.
Buttoned up it has a deep scoop neck. The buttons are poppers, on a woven green-brown trim and hidden. The cardi goes to the top of the bottom and has two pockets with a green-brown lining, which bulge out a bit.
The cardi is quite big. You really have to size down and even then I still think that it is a bit shapeless in the under the chest area.
