Normally I take a while to wear something new. Like a few months and in some cases, it has been known to be a year or so. I like to give myself time to think just incase I should go off something, find there's something wrong with it or find that I actually have no need for it whatsoever and it was a on the spur of the moment purchase. So I surprised myself by pulling the tags off this grey jumper a couple of days after I got it and actually wearing it out.
It's the pale grey version of the natural white H&M one I featured in this post here. I spotted that they did it in a pale grey version too and took it upon myself to bring that home with me so I could "quality check" it at home. The one I have on, passed the test.
So being from H&M, mine's a cheap and cheerful and the 20% off Glamour magazine discount code on top made it that bit sweeter. Now this is one of those jumpers which is actually dah dah dah ... wool free. It's an acrylic cotton mix and very soft. This is great for those people where wool garments prove to be more foe than friend. I don't have any particular allegiance to wool or acrylic - both can be wonderful and both can be terrible. I have had £70 wool jumpers in the past which pilled on me on the first wear. Did I weep. Oh yes.
Anyway, time will tell how this number wears and fares. But for today - it held it's shape well, it's lovely and soft and it's a nice little high street bargain. The neckline is perfect for me who wants the look of something a little higher but without the strangulation factor.
The jumper comes in natural white and dark grey :
And pale grey which is the colour I'm wearing and which is obviously not online as that would be too easy! But there seemed to be plenty in store.
But if you are looking for a luxe looking and feeling jumper in a similar vein, I popped in to Jigsaw today and this one is lovely but there were none in my size to try on :o( This is a nice dense knit, very gorgeous and going on my Christmas list!
And it also comes in the most delicious biscuity camel colour too :
I'm actually torn between the two colours!
