The material and color is gorgeous

I was surprised that the cardigan did not have buttons even though it clearly does not from the photos. I did get used to it pretty quickly. The color is absolutely gorgeous, as is the material. I can’t wait to travel with it, either. Like many, I did find the cost a little prohibitive, but my curiosity got the better of me. Overall, it’s worth supporting a small business trying to make a dent in the wall of fast fashion and ecologically problematic textile manufacturing.

I really want more of them

The 3D knitted no seams was probably the deal maker for me. I wear an apron every day at work and one more thing rubbing on my neck or underarms is just an issues. This sweater is great I love the smoothness of the build of the sweater. I also really like a company that is willing to sell a quality garment that they will stand behind. The pledge to repair the sweater was really another thing that drew me to trying the sweater. I was more than pleased with the feel. Of the knit material it is made from. I really want more of them.

I was wondering what a sweater made of seaweed would be like

I’ve enjoyed sharing my experience with buying and receiving my SeaCell sweater. I was wondering what a sweater made of seaweed would be like and I was very pleased with the garment I received. I would recommend this sweater to anyone looking for a quality sweater that is a nice layering piece.

I bought because of the lifetime backing

I was drawn by the no seams knitting of the brand. I hate seams! I bought because of the lifetime backing! The color is better than my monitor showed. I love the fit and feel so far!

Love, love, love it!

Love, love, love it! Getting softer with every wash. Nice neutral color - goes with everything! Jeans, dresses, shorts all look snazzier with this cardigan. Easy to dress up or dress down. AND it is SeaCell!

Slowing down fast fashion

I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 not because of a design or materials flaw, but because it is larger than I thought it would be. Otherwise, this sweater us great for someone else looking to simplify their closet and make a commitment to high-quality pieces that will last a long time. I like wearing close-fitting, lightweight tops and layering, bc I get hot easily at work as a kindergarten teacher. The sea cell cardigan is the perfect combination for this kind of lifestyle/wardrobe. I started the challenge eager and open-minded. I’d really wanted to start with a wool sweater, but it was still hot where I live when I ordered, and I was SO eager to see one of these cool garments, that I opted for the seaweed blend, bc it would be cooler and more flexible for my adventures.

It is SO soft, the color is pleasant, and I love that there are no bulky seams. It’s the perfect weight to wear to the coast over a tank top, or a cooler morning or evening walk. As a result of the sweater being larger than I’d expected, I will probably not wear it to work as often as I’d originally hoped. It will continue to be a comfortable layer for these early fall days, and again in spring and summer, as I begin to wear tank tops again. I really enjoyed telling people that the fiber is seaweed-based! Friends were eager to touch it! I was also excited to share that because of the unique manufacturing process, it’s practically zero-waste! I look forward to trying a wool sweater next and sizing down, and wearing the heck out of it all winter! The idea of slowing down fast fashion is very appealing to me.

Quality of the fabric is awesome

I love my summer cardigan! It keeps me warm but also isn’t too heavy that I can’t wear it during the summer. It goes with everything. The quality of the fabric is awesome. Feels really nice on the skin. I’m not proud to say, I live my busy life kinda chaotically at times - sometime leaving clothes on the floor / in the car / crumpled up in a gym bag, you get the idea. The Oliver Charles sweater has kept up with this busy lady! I’ve had the sweater over a month, have not washed it and have worn it frequently and it still looks and smells as good as the day I got it. I got a size large which ended up being a little roomy so maybe for my next OC sweater I’ll size down. But oversized sweater still looks cute.

Perfect sustainable choice to pack

I own an XS summer crew neck and tested the new summer cardigan in M. I sized up for a more flowy layering piece. It's a little thicker than the crew, which makes it feel a more substantial. It's just as soft and breathable. I packed it for my trip to San Diego and it kept me plenty warm in the cool morning after I went scuba diving in La Jolla cove and was easy to layer on and off during the warmer parts of the day as my friends and I went in and out of restaurants and walked along the beach (the seaweed cardi was right at home!). At the end of the night we went out around Little Italy and, still wearing the cardigan, I felt comfortable in my additional layer of warmth. The sweater was a perfect sustainable choice to pack. It did it all and was very low maintence. I might upgrade to the wool version for the fall/winter, but for now I'm loving the summer weight.

It's the perfect all-season sweater

The perfect weight for spring, fall and cool summer evenings. This will be great for our cruise. The sleeves are long but the cuffs are snug so it's no problem.

An unexpected favorite

I haven't really worn cardigans in years so I figured I'd pull this out a couple times a year and that would be it. But turns out I'm living in it. I wear it pretty much all day every day. It's a great sweater, and I loved getting able to tell my fashion students that's it's made out of seaweed.

The only thing that could make it better is buttons! I hope they will consider putting one out. I will be the first one to buy.
