It is unlined and the cuffs and bottom are ribbed.  The cashmere is ultra soft. 

Label: Made in Scotland Exclusively for Holt Renfrew in Canada by Ballantyne 100% Pure Cashmere    

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although the lady from whom this was acquired normally wore a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  15” across, seam to seam

Sleeves:  19” from the shoulder seam

Sleeve inseam:  13 1/2”

Bust:  39” around, taken under the arms

Bottom:  25”  around, unstretched, stretches out to 34” max - it has a ribbed bottom

Overall length:  20”, measured flat

Condition:  It is in very good condition with the exception of a repair to either armpit.  The original owner applied a small patch to the interior of the seam joint - there is still a small separation to a seam at either patch, but this could be easily sewn.  Otherwise, there is no pronounced wear or other defect.  I have laundered the item, so it is ready to wear. 

This is a lovely quality cashmere sweater in a pretty pink colour - with a tiny bit of work, this will be a lovely sweater.  Priced as is.
