Scoop this: Linen sweater on sale!

Here's a really good buy: the linen sweater from J. Crew, on sale now on their website for $39.99!

I bought it last year in Sandstone and this year in the lively Soft Fuscia, shown.

It's perfect for air-conditioned interiors, and the deep V neck is flattering to everyone.

Only drawback is "dry clean only" but I'm about to try handwashing one, as I do with my linen blouses.

I saw this sweater and wondered about the weight and texture. Thanks for posting your review. Think this sweater is going in my shopping cart. Merci!

Belette, sweater is not sheer- you don't see what's under it- thanks to the fine cables. The texture is matte, and "lineny"- a bit like roughspun cotton... but, well, linen.

Since I about faint from the heat in TX, it would probably not be outerwear there this time of year.
