When it comes to buying sweaters, I'm extremely picky about fabric. I have sensitive skin, so I can't stand any material that feels even slightly scratchy against my body. I have a select few that I cycle between, and recently, an unexpected knit joined the mix. The Amazon Essentials Soft Touch Ribbed Cardigan is undoubtedly one of the softest sweaters in my closet, and it costs just $32.

Made from a blend of cotton, polyester, acrylic, and elastane, the mid-weight cardigan has subtle puff sleeves, a deep V neckline, and three functional buttons down the front. It also gets tighter around the cuffs and the hemline to give it more shape. You can choose from 10 solid colors and sizes XS through XXL. And if you're an Amazon Prime member (or sign up for a free 30-day trial), the cardigan will be at your doorstep two days after you order it.

One of my favorite parts of the sweater is that it's heavy enough to wear as an outer layer during the beginning of fall, but still thin enough to wear under a jacket when it gets colder. Plus, you can wear a tank, a tee, or even a long-sleeve turtleneck underneath it, depending on the weather.

I'm not the only one who can't stop raving about the quality, feel, and fit of this Amazon Essentials cardigan; Shoppers have taken to the reviews section to share their positive experiences with the sweater.

"The quality of the cardigan felt so nice and thick and soft," one wrote. "I was excited to add it to my fall wardrobe and was so pleasantly surprised by how much I'm enjoying it. The stitching looks well done, and I expect it to last through several cold seasons for me. I think the color match is very close to the color in the photo, and I expect to be picking up more colors in the future."

Another shopper said, "This sweater is everything I wanted. It's soft and thick and so cozy. I absolutely love it and own three colors."

I'm right on board with that customer and plan to buy the cardigan in more colors for the colder months ahead. Shop the Amazon Essentials Soft Touch Ribbed Cardigan for $32 below.
