Woolovers is one of those brands that I find myself returning to again and again for nice, well-made basic knitwear.
Recently, I really lucked out by introducing a friend – she got 20% off and I got a £50 voucher to spend, which meant my next purchases cost virtually nothing.
Woolovers makes a range of knitwear for men and women (and some unisex items) in a range of wools, cottons and silks. My favourite weight is the cashmere-merino mix, which is very soft, very wearable and comfortable. The pure lambswool is a bit itchy for me – wearable but needs three or four washes to soften it. Recently I bought a new wool Aran sweater and that’s fantastic – a really nice weight and quality.
For summer, the company also does lovely cottons and cotton-silk mixtures that are lighter in weight – I particularly value their polka-dot cardis.
The Woolovers website is easy to use – you can check out the measures on individual garments (for instance, I often go up a size to get jumpers at least 28 inches long), and shipping is cheap and fast.
End-of-season sales are very good and afterwards, the goods appear on Amazon.
