I ordered the black softer v neck sweater and am very happy with my purchase. It arrived quickly- well before the expected delivery date with standard shipping. I wear a sm/ med and ordered the medium which fit perfectly so this sweater may run on the small side. I love the dressier look of the wider v neck. The entire sweater is ribbed which I had not expected but certainly is not a deal breaker. A little itchy on first wear but for me not a problem. Whether the cashmere will pill is yet to be determined.
I usually wear a medium but I ordered a large because of the fitted nature of the sweater and it fit well. Lovely weight and knit of the cashmere
