The color is rich and lovely. The texture is interesting and feels fresh and like it can stand alone. The weight is fairly heavy and it's a great sweater on it's own in the winter. I would say I am pretty much always a medium, and have the Every Day Sweater in medium which is prefect, but I sized down to a small, and it's a great fit. I'd still call it relaxed, and the sleeves hit me right at the wrist.
