I purchased this sweater in the Rathna Green. Colors are slightly “off” from photos. They are not as vibrant in person. The ribbing around neck, wrists, hem are dark hunter green in person. The picture looks like teal. The red in person is burgundy, picture on site looks cranberry. So pics on site are more vibrant. The overall fit of this sweater is off, especially the bottom which is very loose. Writing this review, however, b/c of where this sweater is made. Vietnam. It is not made in Nepal by the “Sherpa”. It seems that Sherpa Adventure Gear is making more things elsewhere, than where I am lead to believe. I’m not trying to be nasty or critical, just matter of fact. I am a longtime buyer of this company, but I buy b/c I am lead to believe it is made in Nepal. After all, that’s the appeal of the product line. However, it seems that each piece I buy, when I look at the tag— it’s made everywhere BUT Nepal or by the Sherpa. This sweater is an example of this fact. Lovely sweater, but not made in Nepal. It’s made in Vietnam. As a result, I don’t think I want the sweater. I want what I am thinking I am buying; a product made in Nepal by the Sherpa. Not an item made in Vietnam by who knows who. (?!) It’s basically a $100 sweater. I don’t feel I am getting what I think I am paying for; a sweater made by the Sherpa in Nepal.
I am 5’3” and 110 and bought the XS. Arm length is perfect & /w some fabric to spare. Neck line is true crewneck, which is good. Body of sweater seems good. Sweater is a nice comfortable weight & colors are “different”. The big disappointment and negativity of this sweater is the stretched out bottom hemline & how it is somewhat cropped. When you bend over and move it rides up in the back. In time it will just stretch out even more, which is what I don’t want to happen. The bottom hemline has no structure to it. So it’s causing this sweater to be “trendy & short lived”, rather than classic and a piece you grab for years to come. Unfortunately, I am sending back. I can tell by the cut & hemline that bumping up a size would not solve the problem. The sweater is somewhat perfect until the bottom hemline and cropped cut to this sweater. I would have kept it if it was not for this major problem. The sweater has a nice warmth to it, but the bottom waist hemline is the setback. The website pic of it appears like it is elongated with a nice length. Not so. Disappointed, so it’s gotta go back. Sad to say.
