“ Brand: Asda / Type: Casual Wear „
At the moment I am really feeling the cold and before nipping into Asda and buying myself a few warmer bits and pieces instore recently I felt I had nothing but summer clothes and was really feeling the chill. I am lucky that where I live I have a really good Asda store nearby with plenty of choice clothes wise (In Weston Super Mare) and that it offers me value, quality (usually!) and style and that I can buy it in with my weekly food shop and try to budget as I go.
This I really liked the look of and with a long collar on it I felt that it would be perfect for me!
These jumpers come in a variety of colours such as Petrol Blue, Aqua (my choice), black and dark red and all cost £9.00 each and in sizes 8-18. It is made from 100% acrylic and is fully machine washable, tumble dry and ironing safe, so easy to care for it really is.
The jumper is very simple in style and can be dressed up or down depending on your mood of course. In my opinion it is a very true to size garment as well so it was easy to get the sizing right.
It looks knitted and it has long ribbed sections to the base of the sleeves which are ideal to turn up which means even really long arms can be covered by these sleeves however like I say on shorter arms you can turn them up. Again the collar is long and ribbed in style and the same again, you can simply roll it down and adjust it how you want it and when you do so it doesn't look or feel big and/or bulky.
This is a little tailored to the waist to stop it from looking boxy and again has a large ribbed area to around the bottom of it and it hits my bottom and fits me snuggly.
Although it is a lightweight jumper it keeps me rather warm, doesn't itch me like a knitted garment would next to my skin and although I wash and wear it often I have no issues with this bobbling, colour fading or shrinking or anything like that at all.
All in all I think this is a great essential sort of buy for us gals and at £9.00 a jumper that happens to be great quality for a bit of a bargain too!
