Problems with shedding and pilling
I'm really disappointed with this sweater. I'd like to say first of all that own several Patagonia fleeces and jackets and couldn't be happier overall with their fit, look, and quality. This sweater is very disappointing however. After only a handful of wears, the wool is pilling and leaves strands and little balls of fiber all over ... Read Moremy pants and anything it touches. It also itches quite a bit, but that is somewhat to be expected for wool.

I purchased the el cap khaki and I love the color personally, basically just your standard tan. Pretty true to as shown in the pictures. I live in this or my uprisal hoody (also a large), both handle odor fantastically and can go two weeks without washing easily with average daily usage.

No itch, minimal stretching or shrinking and good threading. This is probably a cheesy review but honestly for my body type it fits perfect and so do most Patagonia products. But I am a pretty skinny 511.
Im very brand loyal and own a variety of Patagonia items. I expect functionality and quality construction throughout. I bought this sweater for warmth. After one use I can say that it does provide the warmth I hoped for. My only disappointment is the straight body cut. Im a slender guy with broad shoulders and longish arms.

Like many Patagonia styles, seems to be getting boxier...
Nice material, just really wide. Not sure if Patagonia is making some new sizing decisions, but much of my recent order was significantly wider than previous clothing.

Not durable, though warm & breathable
I've only worn this sweater for about 20 days. Its stretched out way too much in this time as well as developing lots of little snags. I haven't found it to be on par with the quality of other Patagonia products which is a bummer. I'm familiar with how to properly care for wool sweaters as I own several others I've found at thr... Read Moreift stores. In comparison to other sweaters I own, this is the most delicate. It has lost a lot of its shape in a short time, stretching out around the shoulders, wrists and waist. I don't mind the snags so much, but they seemingly appear out of nowhere...Its a pretty loose knit compared to my other wool sweaters. This is somewhat superficial, but in my opinion the sweater has lost a lot of functionality due to its fragility and loss of shape. Wool sweaters are expected to be durable which is why they've been famously worn by fisherman, skiers, woodsman etc. over the years. Hopefully the next iteration is improved.
Hi Will, we're happy to hear that your Men's Recycled Wool Sweater is keeping you toasty, but it's unfortunate about the stretching and snagging. We have a quick suggestion that could help you out with the stretch issue! Wool sweaters should be washed every 4-5 wears. Wash your wool sweater by hand in cool water with a bit of dishwashing liquid or a wool safe detergent. Let the garment soak in the basin, but don’t agitate the water, twist, rub or wring it out. Then rinse with fresh water until the water runs clear and gently squeeze out excess water. Air-dry your sweater by laying it flat on a dry towel and stretching it to the correct size and shape before it dries. If you have already tried this and feel that your sweater is not meeting your expectations, please feel free to begin a return or exchange here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
Wanted to love this but man is it scratchy. Just received it in the mail today and as soon as I put it on I knew it wasn’t for me. As for the fit: I’m 6’4”, 235lbs with an athletic build and it is much shorter than expected and boxy. Too bad. Really wanted to like this.
Thank you for leaving a review on our Recycled Wool Sweater. We're sorry to hear that it had an itchy feel for you. Wool sometimes feels extra itchy to certain people if they have an allergic reaction to it, so that could be what's happening here. Either way, we're happy to help to ensure you're satisfied at the end of the day. If you haven't returned yet, you are welcome to do so. Please check out our [Men's Recycled Cashmere Crewneck Sweater](https://www.patagonia.ca/product/mens-recycled-cashmere-crewneck-sweater/50525.html?dwvar_50525_color=BEBR) as a potential swap out.
It feels like a regular wool sweater to me. I wore it yesterday with a lightweight long sleeve t-shirt underneath and, unlike other reviewers, I didn't notice any itchiness. It is a comfortable, classic weight sweater with turned-back cuffs (the cuff is held in place by a stitch of yarn). The arms were a perfect length for me, but I tend to ge...

Well made but itchy
I purchased this sweater for my 20 year old son. It arrived on time for the holiday and the color and fit is just as described. He is tall and thin and I ordered him an xlg & he looks great in it. He did state that he will always need to wear a long sleeve shirt under the sweater because it is very itchy (which is why I have 4 stars rather than... Read More 5).
It was great until....
I have an older version of this sweater with the neck zip. Two of them actually. I love them, fit great, warm, dressy enough for work, but not too polished. I realized after owning them for some time, it was probably time to wash them. I always wore them as an outside layer for office work so they never got dirty. I followed the directions to the l...

We are so sorry to hear about this. Please note, we guarantee everything we make and we encourage you to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) these back to us for a warranty evaluation. As long as things are being washed properly, they shouldn't be shrinking down in sizes.
Nice, warm, but heavy. What
Nice, warm, but heavy. What happened to your cashmere sweaters, equally warm but lighter to wear?
Hi Edward! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review, we really appreciate the feedback.

Sleeves Too Long
I wear sweaters all the time. I purchased a medium and found that the sleeves are 2" too long on me. I a 5'9" slim guy and have never had this issue. That said I'm keeping it.

Your satisfaction is always guaranteed, so if you decide you'd like to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) you can!
Great sweater. Sizing is tough.
I really like this sweater, but had a tough time finding the right size. I wear some things from Patagonia that are men’s size large and some men’s size medium. I originally bought a large, and exchanged for a medium. Still, the sleeves and body are a little long. Otherwise, the sweater is of great quality and design.
Bought for my pappa!!
I bought this sweater for my pappa for Christmas (my family is fully in love with Patagonia as a company and their values). After he let me try it on I immediately wanted one for myself. It is perfectly oversized and heavy but still hugs the body! Seriously wish I would have bought one for myself.
Recycled Wool Sweater
This sweater is perfect for the Pacific NW and our three season dampness. We keep our house cool, so it is great inside and to go outside I add a rain shell and that is usually warm enough. When it does get cold, it is great as a second layer over a long sleeved base which also negates itching on bare skin. I'm thinking about getting another.
I live in Alaska and wear a lot of sweaters. This is a keeper. I'm 6'0 160lbs and the the medium was perfect. The sleeve length is perfect- goes just past the wrist a little and because it has a little stretch to it makes it very easy to move around in without it pulling this way and that (would make a good ski sweater I would think..).

I was so excited to purchase a sweater using recycled materials. When I opened my package, I could see right away that the sweater was of great quality.
