“ Brand: Asda / Type: Womens Cardigan „
I bought this cardigan from Asda because the weather has started to pick up a bit, and I hate being too hot in work, so I thought if I got a few cardis at least I can wear short-sleeved tops and have something in work to throw over them if it gets a bit cool.
I chose this black cardigan because black is the safest option if you're looking for something which will match any colour you are wearing. The cardigan cost £12 and has a nice ribbed pattern on it. It is quite a fine cardigan, so isn't really suitable for winter wear, and the sleeves are only ¾ length which I find quite annoying because I hate the feeling of cold arms on my desk as I'm typing.
The cardigan has a nice flattering shape to it, it starts off straight at the top and then flows out at the bottom which means it's nice and loose if you're trying to hide any lumps or bumps. It just about covers my bum. It doesn't have any buttons or anything to close the cardigan, so it is literally for wrapping round yourself if you get a bit chilly.
The cardigan is made of 30% nylon, 30% polyester, 20% cotton and 20% viscose. It recommends a 30 degree wash, and also says to wash it on a delicate/woollen cycle. I actually didn't notice this when I bought it and have been washing with my other dark items at either 30 or 50 degrees, and it hasn't caused the cardigan any harm. It still has its shape, although you do have to be careful to reshape it whilst it's damp, otherwise it looks a bit odd when it dries. I discovered this after my other half had draped it haphazardly over the clothes airer, and when it dried it looked like it had a coat hanger sticking out of it!
I would only recommend this cardi for light use, personally I didn't realise how annoying the short sleeves would be, because usually when I wear a cardi it's because my arms are cold more than anything else. In hindsight, I would have been better off buying a cardigan with full length sleeves, although this has come in handy for work.
