Ratings & Reviews
Love my new sweater!
I found this sweater on clearance at Mountain Equipment Co-op (in Canada). I'm a tall slim build at 5'11" 140 lbs so it's hard to find clothes that fit well. I usually wear size medium in tops & this sweater was no exception. It's super soft & warm, & a classic design that will be a great staple to my wardrobe.
LOVE this sweater BUT.....
Beware that this sweater shrinks even when washed according to washing instructions listed on the garment! It is beautiful, warm, not at all itchy, and I did get lots of compliments when I wore it. If it were not for shrinking, it would get 5 stars from me! Hey Toad & Co, and chance you'll exchange my shrunken small for a size medium? I'm so sad that it's no longer wearable :(
By: Toad & CoGood call-out - we have adjusted the care instructions to "Hand Wash Only". We also recommend laying flat to dry and to NEVER wring this product. We are reaching out to you directlyto make things right!
Loved it but...
By: Jennifer Hill
I loved this sweater so much, but it shrank so badly in the wash (even per instructions) that I can’t wear it anymore. :( I only got to wear it once or twice, sadly, but it was so soft and beautiful when I did. Be careful buyers! I guess all you can do is hand wash gently in cold, cold, cold water and lay out...
I had the exact same problem with shrinkage!!!!! I bought a small and LOVED it. Got lots of compliments. Washed according to the delicate/ wool cycle and now it's half the size. The arms are too tight, it shrunk in length and width. I did NOT put it in the dryer. I cannot wear it. >$100 is not acceptable to wear once. I am glad I did not also purchase the gray as I had been considering.

Beautiful simple sweater
I love this sweater. The material is wonderful. I looked around for awhile to find a cruelty free merino wool sweater. True to size, I ordered a M which is my normal size. I am pretty tall (5' 11") so I wish the sleeves were about an inch longer, but I'm pretty used to that if I'm not buying a tall size.
Wonderfully soft sweater. Merino that feels like cotton. That being said, the tag on the sweater DOES NOT match the website. So disappointed. I’m not going to refer to a website every time I do laundry. Tag says machine wash and it clearly is not so now I have shrunk unwearable garment.
By: Toad & CoAndrea- Thank you for feedback! We've reached out to your separately to make it right. You're correct, customers shouldn't have to check the website for updated washing instructions before laundering. We apologize, and know your call-out will help alert others - so thanks again!
Favorite sweater until I washed it
I love(d) this sweater but as everyone else has noted, it shrinks a lot. I *really* wish I'd seen these reviews and/or the updated care instructions before I washed it because it's literally 2/3 the size. (My neighbor's 10yo daughter is pretty excited about this hand-me-down, though.)
By: Toad & CoThanks for your feedback Lindsay! We're so sorry for your recent washing experience with the Marlevelous Crew Pullover Sweater. We've reached out to you separately to make it right.
Love it, but it shrunk and was ruined!
I bought this of another site and did not read these reviews until too late. It is such a great sweater -- until you wash it. I machine washed it cold, per the instructions and now it is the size of my seven year olds clothing. Four stars once you change the wash instructions!
By: Toad & CoEmily - We're so sorry you experienced massive shrinking and have reached out to you separately to make it right. We've bolded the updated care instructions in the product details section in hopes others don't experience the same results.
Favourite sweater. So sad it shrunk.
I bought this sweater for my daughter for her birthday. She loved it and wore it almost continuously for several days until I told her I HAD to wash it.
I washed it in cold, gentle cycle with mild detergent and was so sad to see it has shrunk. Only after that did I search online and find out that happened to others too....
Wonderful sweater, soft, cozy, but now too small. Would be happy to hand wash if I knew ahead of time.

Amazing sweater - read new care instructions!
By: Kendal Sasso
The reviews are correct! Do not put into the washing machine. I had done it once before and it was fine, but this second washing I pulled it out and it was so small :( for this price point, I wasn't expecting that. However, this is my go to sweater. It gets a lot of compliments and feels great. I definitely recommend - just with the updated care instructions.
This is a great sweater but doesn't work well for gently wash. I typical hand wash and reviewed the garment instructions and decided to through in my washer...bad idea. The texture is off now. Hopefully they update the garmet wash instructions soon for future buyers. :(
I just washed my sweater for the first time last night and was so sad when I pulled it out and it had shrunk! This is my favourite sweater. It is so soft and cozy, and I like that it’s a tiny bit long in the back. I wore this sweater all the time. I don’t have a receipt any more, but any chance of another sweater? I’d also give this sweater a 5 stars if it hadn’t shrunk. 😔
By: Toad & CoThanks for your feedback Tricia! So bummed to hear your favorite sweater shrunk. Updated care instructions are noted in the product details section. We're reaching out to you to make this right!
My most favorite, until I dried it and it shrunk so tiny
Absolutely LOVE this sweater. Tons of compliments. So soft. So warm. Great for winter, and very flattering fit.
Sadly I wash and dried this (like I do many Toad&Co sweaters) and cried when I saw it shrunk and became the tiniest ever. I'm so saddened by this and donated it in hopes someone can enjoy its new fit (and otherwise perfectly new condition). Do NOT dry this sweater if you purchase - you'll be so sad! Otherwise it's the best sweater.
I really liked the sweater when I bought it and wore it all season without complaint. After the winter, I hand washed it (even thought the tag said machine wash), because of the wool, and put it away for the season. When the weather turned cool enough to wear it again, it felt much snugger than I remembered. I thought it was due to having recently been pregnant, so I put it away for a bit longer. I’m now back to my prepregnancy size/shape, but the sweater is definitely snugger than before. I can wear it, but the shoulders/arms are just too tight for comfort and it’s now just a bit too fitted. This is a case of shrunken sweater, not enlarged woman, which is too bad. If you’re considering this sweater, note the washing instructions and size up.
I usually don't write reviews, but I love this sweater. I had worn the grey sweater everyday on a trip to Europe recently so I wanted to wash it when I got home. I took a chance and put it in the washer on delicates with low spin using a wool formulated mild liquid detergent - only a short cycle with cold water. I didn't experience any shrinking at all (stretched it out of the washer) and laid flat to be sure. It washed nicely and still felt as soft as when I got it. I didn't see how hand washing would be different than that extra gentle cycle on my washer - and it wasn't. The grey color is really flattering.
