Well, the weather has gone a bit cold hasn’t it here in England? Even tucked away in usually tropical London I’ve been feeling the cold for a couple of weeks and it doesn’t look like any warm weather is on its way any time soon. With that in mind, for the last two months at least, my work attire has consisted mainly of jeans, tee and thick jumper to try and ward off colds, bugs and general illness (and failing). However, there has been one of my jumpers that has kept me snug as a bug and really warm despite the almost bi-polar air conditioning in my new office (it blows freeing cold or at levels akin to an overheating sauna). Step forward my Fair isle Polo Neck jumper from Woolovers, an online purveyor of all things knitwear in cashmere, cotton and wool.
As far as jumpers go, the Woolovers site has pretty much everything that you could imagine for both men and women and at prices that I consider to be very reasonable. While you can pick up a cheap jumper for £20-£30 that lasts for a few months before being washed out of shape or becoming a touch bitty, splashing just that little more and you get great quality clothing. My jumper came in at just £45 and I have been delighted with the quality, the comfort and the fact that the pure lambs wool doesn’t itch or make me scratch away (a problem I have at times with 100% wool).
This is what they say about themselves over at the Woolovers site here:
'Started in 1989 from small beginnings, Wool Overs is now a world class knitwear retailer, supplying nearly 750,000 customers with men's and ladies classic and contemporary knitwear. We now have websites for the UK, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand and two fully-translated versions for France and Russia - all helping to ensure we can spread our love of knitwear the world over!
So, for lovers of Wool, Cotton & Cashmere knitwear, we think we’ve managed to create a rather special range that offers you amazing value, without compromising on quality. More importantly, we hope you feel the same! In association with the 100% Pure Wool Board and Woolmark, we ensure that our woollen yarns are of the highest quality, and unlike most high street knitwear today, all of our styles are fully machine washable.'
And this is what the jumper I selected looks like on…..
As I said, the site offer a whole range of clothing for both men and women and I for one could spend a fortune on this site. Not only is the selection great it has weaned me off just wearing black! Actually making my selection was a nightmare as I love loads of the clothes on offer on the site - my other favourites (and on my wish list) include:
Looking for good quality clothing that is well made and won’t break the bank then you can do a lot worse than checking out Woolovers. You won’t be disappointed with your purchase.
