Why We Love It
Our archives are full of beautiful sweaters, but there was something about our "Earthues" Sweaters that demanded we bring them back. Originally described as "pure, vibrant, unrefined," they featured natural colors and one-of-a-kind texture. All of this returns – better than ever – in ecofriendly organic cotton-blend yarns.
Fabric & Care
- In a textured donegal blend of 65% organic cotton with 35% nylon.
- Machine wash, dry flat.
- Ribbed trim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JStiles from Gorgeous Fall Sweater I ordered the Donegal sweater in mountain red. I am very pleased with it. The color is a rich burgundy wine red, and the heathered flecks in the yarn give the sweater a pretty look. It fits me perfectly, and is very comfortable. It pairs nicely with button shirts or long-sleeved tees, and when it gets colder it will look great with a scarf. Dressy enough for church, family gatherings, or a restaurant, if worn with Bayside pants. I'd wear it to work.... but I'm retired! Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ilovebooks from Just what I wanted! Unlike the previous reviewer, I wanted the thread "flecks" characteristic of Donegal sweaters, but also found the photos misleading because the colors look very solid, especially in the catalog. I actually called Customer Service before ordering to inquire about the texture and was happy to find that they are indeed "flecky," but the look is subtle and very classy. I ordered the two neutrals - cream and gray - and am very happy with both. The cream has brownish/rust flecks and the gray has black. If I had to pick a favorite, it would definitely be the gray. The sweaters are soft, roomy, and a nice mid-thigh length that will be perfect with leggings. They're also a nice cotton/nylon blend, and relatively lightweight which is great for those of us in warmer climates. I always look forward to LLB's fall sweaters and this one did not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by svenskfiol from I’m in LOVE! This cardigan fits perfectly. I’m very tall for a female, and have a difficult time finding clothing that fits. It’s long enough (and since I’m going to wear this sweater with regular jeans, not leggings) to be the perfect length for my body type. The sleeves are a good length, and *it has pockets!!!* Finally!! Pockets in women’s clothing! Can you tell that I’m exasperated—but very excited?! And the cotton softness is fabulous. It feels sooo comfy and not too warm. Getting my credit card out to order the indigo one now!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zoomer from antiquing? Love the style. Don't love the added "texture" of tiny threads of Teal color woven into the faded navy blue. It looks messy and tattered to me. I saw no indication of this woven-in color online. Do love the style though. Won't buy another, knowing the surprise interweaving of unexpected color is possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JOllie from Keepers! This sweater feels like you're being hugged, but in a nice way. The arms are not tight and the overall length and fit is perfect. Nice pocket placement. The lighter color will coordinate with just about anything and I'm sure this will be my go-to once the weather cools down.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tessa64 from Disappointed I wanted to love this sweater but it looks like it's pilling right out of the bag. I do not like the flecks of green woven in as they already seem to be snagged. I didn't even wear sweater so definitely going back. Really wanted to love...

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveLLBean from Fabric Content Organic cotton blend sounded great until I realized what I had actually purchased contained 35% nylon. I prefer 100% cotton and have come to expect natural fabric from LLBean. If I had read the description more carefully I wouldn’t have the spent $69! Not being able to throw it in the washer and dryer is kind of annoying as well. But I like the color and fit so I’m keeping it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aUSconsumer from Love it! Beautiful sweater, classic style is great! Mtn red is more of a winey red color and the variable color flecks and texture through out this cardigan add pop to this cardigan. Ordered extra large as I like to wear cardigans over different fabric naps & bulky items and have found the larger sizes easier to get on and more comfortable. Love the length as it covers any style top. Overall a nice feeling sweater and pockets are such a plus as so many pants have none or are very skimpy.
