“ Brand: Yours / Type: Top „
When the weather got cold at the end of last year, I took myself off down town to pick up a couple of new jumpers. I actually really dislike high street shopping (I buy practically everything I own from Amazon) but since I was off out for lunch with my mum and would be in the town anyway, it wasn't out of my way to pop into Yours clothing, where I spotted this jumper the moment I walked in the door.
I fell in love with it pretty instantly - not only was the material (85% Acrylic, 15% Cotton) incredibly soft, but I liked the length of the jumper, which was long enough to cover my belly and waist, and just skimmed the tops of my thighs. I also liked the fact that the collar line of it was quite low, not up close and snug around the neck. But the crowning glory of the jumper was the black and white dog, with his sorrowful guilty eyes. That is the face of a dog that has pooped somewhere it shouldn't have and craves your forgiveness, and he is ever so cute!
The jumper can be machine washed at a 40 degree setting, but cannot be ironed or tumble dried. I did find that after a few washes it started to feel less soft on the skin. This poor jumper was worn practically every day when the weather was cold, and has now begun to lose it's shape a little, though it's still comfortable to wear, its more of a scruffing about jumper now.
It's not a particularly thick jumper - you wouldn't be able to wear this and leave of your coat on the coldest days, but I find that this is thin enough to wear under a jacket, and great for when the house is a little cold, but not cold enough to put the heating on.
I paid £24 for it, which I think was good money really. Yes, it has begun to look less than new after 5 months of use, but it did have heavy use during that time, being practically the only jumper I own! It is still available at http://www.yoursclothing.co.uk/ at the reduces price of £16, and I do think it's a lovely cute jumper for a little extra warmth in winter. 4 stars.
