a blend of rayon derived from bamboo, TENCEL® and cashmere makes this lightweight fabric warm, soft and breathable - Boolux® gear is also double-knit so it's reversible
why we made this
You've heard of hammer time and tea time. Well, this is chai time (and we encourage you to touch this). Made with super soft Boolux™ fabric, this loose pullover layers easily over tights and helps to keep our core temperature steady during Savasana at the end of our practice.

BEWARE OF BOOLUX
First, these photos are of the post-savasana pullover made from the same BOOLUX material as the Chai Time. The item I purchased is no longer available, so I can't post this review for it. I purchased my Boolux sweater about a month ago. I live in N. Florida where it is a million degrees in the summer. We finally had an evening where I could where my sweater. I wore it out to dinner (we were gone 2 hours-more or less). I came home, and as I was putting the sweater away I noticed MAJOR pilling on the side where my purse touches my hip!!!!! After wearing it ONCE!!!! I paid $69.00 for my item on the WMTM section, don't make the same mistake for $88.00. See attached photos!

Soooo obsessed with this sweater. I am ordering another one right now. It fits perfectly (true to my normal size 2 in shirts) and is soooo soft and adorable. Yes, it will potentially snag as with ALL thin sweaters. I am going to use a crochet hook to fix any snags I get but I am going to try to be careful with it because I love it ohhhh so much. Thanks, Lulu!!

So sad- Come on Lulu!
I purchased this sweater in the London store as Kitchener sadly does not have one. I tried it on in the store and despite the horrible reviews I couldn't resist. HUGE mistake- after wearing it once I noticed a small hole and a large run (similar to nylons) on the sleeve along the seams. I didn't even wash it yet- and it can't be sewn due to the run. What a waste of money for $88.00.
Save yourself the hassle- pass this one over. I can only imagine what it would look like after being washed.

I just received this shirt and I love it. Material is soft, the fit is great (I ordered a couple sizes up for a baggier look), and the colour is very nice (black/charcoal). It's my new favourite shirt. :)

Loved this sweater, except that it does not fit loose or long. Would need to size up for this.
I am 5'8 and I am normally a size 6 in everything except the length in this.

Should have read the reviews first...
I bought this sweater to be an excellent light layer over tanks while on my trip to Rome. It worked perfectly the first day, it is super soft and comfy, even breathable. I was super excited to put it on again the next day, but I noticed the material had started piling on the sides where my arms hang, there were also little fibers sticking out between the knit, looked almost like little plastic strings.
I think I'll still wear this, but only around the house now.

Lululemon. Why do you keep making clothes with such bad material??? Do you think people won't notice?? I tried this sweater on in he store in dark grey and bought it. I liked the style and it fit me well. I brought it home and washed it as per the instructions (hand wash cold and lay flat to dry). But there is so much fuzz EVERYWHERE. I've attached a picture of my fingers after I laid the sweater down to dry. No excessive manhandling involved, literally just me adjusting the sweater. Very bad quality material. I gave it 2 stars because I like the style though. But definitely do not recommend.

So it's summer and I bought a sweater..?
If you don't like line drying/flat drying your clothes, maybe you should back out now before you get too attached to this sweater. I hate line drying things, but a lot of my normal clothes are either lay flat to dry or line dry only, so this didn't really bother me too much.
I'm a fan of slouchy, lightweight sweaters, and this one is absolutely perfect. The thumbholes are probably one of my favorite things about LLL tops, and the cuffs on this have just enough elastic that they won't stretch out. It is a bit sheer, but it's because of the stitching used to make the sweater. It's perfect for throwing over a tank, or even just a sports bra. The armpit is a little slouchy, which I really love - I can't stand super tight armpits on shirts! It's so so so comfortable, and I can't wait to wear this even into the winter!

So cozy and pretty!
LOVE this sweater! I have the other Chai sweater that is a little thicker material and this Chai sweater is perfect for the cooler summer nights. I got the pretty pink and it's very feminine and soft looking. The fit and the length is perfect for me. I'm 5'3", 32DD & 122 lbs., a size 6 is just right! I wish it came in more colors because I'd buy a few more!

Soft and Beautiful
What a beautiful sweater! Soft, delicate, and lovely to wear. The ballet neckline is so flattering, and it has a body-grazing, hip-length, graceful fit that works equally well with leggings and more structured bottoms. I ordered the soft pink and it's as pretty and romantic as you'd expect.
One note: I suspect this sweater has been mislabelled on line. Think it's actually the original Chai Time Pullover, not the Chai Time II. I have a Chai II from earlier this year and it's a completely different sweater: longer, heavier, ribbed, reversible, no pockets. I actually prefer this original Chai to the Chai II. I feel it's a prettier and more versatile top - but all comes down to preference.
Fitwise, this one is true to size, maybe a bit on the larger side. I am 5' 3.5" 102 lbs 32C, typically a 2 or 4 in lulu. Went with a size 2 in this sweater.
