Great design – pity about the quality control

If it were for the design alone I would give it 5 anchors, but several factors lower my rating:
I washed this according to the instructions for the first time last week and when gently steaming to regain shape I noticed that in two places, where the colours change, stitches have been missed and HOLES were beginning to appear.
Normally I would be straight down to the store but because of C-19 lockdown I just shrugged and mended the holes.
The wool is NOT soft in my opinion, it is quite harsh even after a fabric softener, and it pills badly.
It wasn't cheap (bought at full price) and if this is the usual quality of Seasalt knitwear, I will not be buying again – sorry!

Ideal for your vaccine

I’m reviewing last year's colourway which I wore today to have my vaccine! Ideal..cheerful harlequin colours, which is just what you need at the moment and it's easy to slip off so as not to slow the jab process down! If you are hovering then treat yourself or better still get someone to treat you.. It is big so size down, I buy Seasalt 12 and S was perfect.

Cosy and Colourful Cardigan

A beautiful cardigan. I particularly like the combination of colours in the design. I prefer merino wool, and I love the softness of it. I chose the large size, as I like a cardigan to wrap around me.
All in all a wonderful item, which I will treasure.

Gorgeous colours

Bought the cardigan for the colours, though I don't usually buy hand wash only items. Based on reviews I went for size medium (I'm usually 16-18), which fits well. However, if I were using it over jumpers etc. I would have bought a larger size.
Only disappointed I didn't wait a couple of days as the price dropped by another £10 before I'd even received it!

Another winner!

A different colourway this season enticed me to buy another of these absolutely beautiful jackets, this time in a Medium size, which I think is probably the optimal size (for multi-purpose use) on my typical size 16 (sometimes 14 or 18!) frame.

I had bought last year's colourway from your Falmouth shop in the Small size just before the jackets sold out, and it looks amazing too, but the sleeves are very neat on me, so definitely for use inside in the winter, and no room for thick layers underneath. I loved wearing the jacket so much that I bought a second one later in last year's colourway In a much larger size (probably it was a return to the shop) to wear as a coat over thick jumpers. I just could not resist!

I pointed out last year that there are some issues around the shoulders/arms of the larger-sized jackets. Looking at the length of the sleeves on the website this year, I noticed that they still seem to get shorter the larger the jacket, so it looks like these shoulder problems might persist, with the shoulder seems ending up part of the way down the arm. There are no such problems with the Small and Medium sizes, they are absolutely perfect! They are warm, comfortable and visually striking. Definitely very special jackets to treasure for a long time.

Tall Story Cardigan

Absolutely love this cardigan. Fab colour combo and really well made and it's warm! Only slight prob for me is that the sleeves on the size S are quite long and loose at the cuffs. I may have to adjust but apart from that there's no sending back! Thank you Seasalt xx

A stunning jacket

Despite using the size finder I have come to the conclusion I am an in between sizes person! I originally ordered a Medium which was OK'ish but my hubby thought was too big. Not wishing to miss out on this lovely garment I ordered again in the Small, before returning, and am absolutely delighted with it. A nice weight garment and smart. I can't wait to wear it.

Tall Story cardigan.

Lovely garment and fabric but despite using the sizing guide a medium was much too big and baggy. I usually buy a size 12 in Seasalt tops. I returned this on November 18th but still waiting for a refund. When this does arrive I may try a smaller size.at the gainsborough shop if they have one.

Lovely fabric but too large sizing

I am giving this two anchors because the colours look even better in real life than they do on the screen and the wool is lovely and smooth, but thick and warm. So I was very excited when I opened the package. Unfortunately when I put it on it just looked like a baggy sack and somehow the pattern meeting in the middle (with no buttons/wrapover) only adds to the impression of hugeness. I was very disappointed but just knew I would never wear it so sent it back (I am size 8/10 and bought Small).
