Bookend Pullover Sweater

Bookend Pullover Sweater is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and warm. This sweater is so soft and keeps me so warm. I bought it when I was in a cold city and I totally replaced my not so warm sweater and layers with this and a tank and I was equally as warm. I will say for classic Madewell sizes this runs pretty small. I can generally wear a small sometimes a medium but this I had to buy a large for it to fit with that slightly oversized look that we all love about Madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softest sweater I've ever felt This sweater is CRAZY soft, cozy, and flattering. I usually wear a M in everything Madewell, but at the store I decided to go with a L in this. It's a little on the fitted / cropped side, and the L had a looser fit that I would typically associate with a M. I got the green, which is a rich forest green, perfect with a pair of dark wash jeans for fall!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OMG Crazy Soft I wish my cat were this soft and cuddly. Or my blankets. Or my boyfriend. #goals Anyway, this is a ridiculously soft sweater. With this yarn comes a bit of trouble: once again Madewell is recommending handwashing. I'm okay with that, but it seems odd to have to handwash a blend of nylon, some wools and spandex. Isn't the point of blended fabrics that they're virtually indestructible? The style here isn't anything unique but it's flattering, cozy, and certain to keep you warm. I love the deep green Forest color. So you can't ask for much more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super delicate fabric This is a cute style. I especially like the length (not too long, not too cropped -- perfect for wearing with high waisted jeans). However, it is an extremely delicate fabric. There's a tag attached to the sweater indicating this but it was NOT indicated in the website description when I ordered. This should be reflected in the website details on fabric. (Especially because it's final sale.) It has already begun pilling after a week of normal, careful wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SO SOFT this sweater is SO SOFT. it is like wearing a very soft blanket. i got the light purple which is a beautiful color. i gave it 4 stars though because it is a little shorter in the front than i would have liked. it's not necessarily crop top short but is shorter than most sweaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO soft! This sweater is so soft! The green color is gorgeous and I've worn once and already gotten so many compliments. I'm 5'10", about 130 pounds and bought a medium since I have long arms and a long torso. Probably could have gone with a small but the medium is just fine as well. 10/10 would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy and cute I thought I wanted this sweater in the mink color, so I ordered it and the dark green, just in case I liked that one better. The heather mink turned out to be too gray, not brown enough and was returned. But the green is gorgeous. I'm 5'6", 112 pounds and normally a 2 on top. I ordered the XS and I wish it were a little more close to the body. I'm keeping it anyway because, as I said, it's gorgeous and cozy. I hope it wears well and doesn't pill. Also, if you're listening Madewell, I wish slits at the bottom of sweaters would go away forever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like the color but easy to lost the shape It's really soft and the color is fine. I am 5'2, xxs ftis me well. But I am afraid that these sweater is easy to lost the origin shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softest sweater Like other reviewers said, this sweater is incredibly soft! It's light but warm, and I love the cut (flares away just slightly at the waist). I'm 5'3" and it's the perfect length on me - just slightly lower than the waistline of my pants. The only downside is that it's hand wash only, but that's to be expected with nicer fabrics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Super soft & cozy sweater. It's shorter so perfect for high waisted jeans. You can see a small sliver of belly if I lifted my hands up but I don't normally walk around with my hands above my head so it's fine. Lol. I'm 115 lbs and I got an XS. was a little itchy when I first put it on but after like 10 mins it's totally fine.
