Crafted from a cozy blend of cotton, modal, and polyester, the cardigan is "perfect for Canadian spring and fall."

While reviewers have given the cardigan an average rating of 4.6 stars, some shoppers note the sweater runs "a little broad" in the shoulders and caution that the "material stretches out easily."

Verdict

With colder weather on the horizon, there's no better time to pick up a cozy knit for fall — especially one with thousands of reviews to back it up. While many Amazon shoppers say this open-front cardigan is versatile and stylish and praise its soft and durable fabric, some caution it runs wide and can stretch easily — so you'll want to be careful with how you wash and care for this one.
