I typically do not purchase cowl neck sweaters and/or pullovers because they're difficult to put on and then take off without getting make up on the color or messing up your hair. Plus, I'm not a fan of things right around my neck. However, everyone raved about this particular item, so I purchased it on a whim. And, it is so soft, with plenty of room to pull and on/off with no issues with make up/hair. And the colors are very versatile and go with so many different options (I love mine with multiple shades of denim and leggings - my absolute "go to").
