Can you help me replace a favorite yellow cardigan?

I dearly loved my mustard-yellow Lands' End merino wool cardigan. In fact, I loved it to the point that it has started to fall apart. I am struggling to find a replacement. Can you help?

I've looked on eBay and have found the item only available in size 3X - I wore the Small (6-8). I'm open to other brands but haven't found a good match through Googling. What I loved about this cardigan in no particular order:
  1. v-neck (not polo) and length (hit at the hip, not too "flowy" or long)
  2. avoiding embellishments (rhinestones etc) - although the tan edging on the pockets was nice
  3. quality of material - I'm not married to merino but I loved the softness, lack of bulk, and warmth
  4. color - this shade (called "heather dijon" by Lands End) was not too neon-bright and surprisingly versatile
Can you help me find a replacement for this cardigan-shaped hole in my wardrobe? Thank you! (PS - in the US if you are suggesting online shops)

Not having owned one myself, I can't vouch for the quality, but I found this one on ModCloth, and I know it's a super popular line of cardigans.

This looks pretty close, but it's a UK site.

This is good too but it's a brighter yellow, and also cashmere and like $150.

There was just a roundup of some options for mustard cardigans on Already Pretty.

How long have you had it? Land's End is really actually very good about replacing clothing items that have not lived as long as they should have. Might be worth a call to customer service (which is always stellar, IMO, at Land's End).

Seconding giving Land's End a call, they're really good about this kinda stuff and not terrible to deal with.

Try woolovers! http://woolovers.com/

I just bought a heap of merino cardigans from them. (I'm a cardigan-lover and I found their site via a Google search, trying to replace a loved-to-death gray cardigan that had deteriorated into nothing but pills.)

They have lots of pure-wool items at good prices. I'm super-happy with the stuff I ordered from them.
