Irish Fisherman's Sweater
could have worn as a dress
Material was not at all what I expected after reading the reviews. It was so long It could have been a dress--material felt like plastic. I was so looking forward to wearing this sweater.

I have always admired these Irish sweaters but did not like the heavy scratchy wool of the original design. However, it seems that a genius Irish sweater designer decided to use the "fisherman" design with a lighter softer wool. So, to my delight I discovered this on a recent trip to Ireland. The updated version is incredibly soft, light, and warm. Since I only bought one in Ireland, I decided to look for more once we returned home to the U.S. And, low and behold, good old dependable Vt. Country Store has them at a very reasonable price.

I've been buying these Irish wool sweaters for years and they are great. They last for years and are very warm. I'm glad Vermont Country Store is carrying them.

Fisherman's Sweater is a winner!
I love this sweater! It has been quite chilly here in Southern California lately and the sweater does what it is supposed to do -- keeps the warm in. It is also extremely attractive. The blue color is just my shade!

perfect for riding around in a convertable in the deep south in winter.

She loves it!
Bought this sweater for my daughter for Christmas to replace a beloved but worn out fisherman's sweater. She squealed with delight when she opened it. I ordered the cream colored sweater and it has nice colored flecks in it. It appears that it will match virtually everything in her closet, is comfortable, and is, most importantly, WARM.
Only comment is that it runs a bit small. My daughter usually wears a size 8 in misses clothes and the Small ( recommended for women's sizes 8-10) just barely fit. We debated returning it for a medium but decided that the shoulders and arms would then be too big. Perhaps a separate women's version could be developed?

Bought this as a Christmas present for my beau. Impeccable, heirloom quality. Just be mindful of sizing. I didn't read that it's unisex and so I ordered his usual L. I have to return it for an XL. Small hassle, but a beautiful sweater.

My husband had an irish sweater that was put in the washer which ruined it forever. This sweater that came was a surprise for his birthday. It is not only warm but beautiful pattern in an oatmeal color that he really loved. Thank you!
