Woolen knitwear Australia are what we know as a woollen pullover. A wool jumper can be for men, women or children and it is a woollen garment that you pull over your head. Knitwear Australia can also refer to woollen cardigans Australia.

People who find it hard to extend their arms up high prefer a woollen cardigan Australia as it is easier to slip on than a woollen jumper if people have difficulties extending their arms due to shoulder pain.

May it be a woollen sweater for men or a woollen sweater for women, all woollen knitwear Australia fit differently and there is some advice to be given when looking at buying a woollen sweater

 Australian wool sweaters can be found in super fine merino wool, medium weight merino wool or heavy weight merino wool. Depending on the weight, generally the lighter the weight of the woollen jumper Australia, the neater the fit of the wool knitwear. As knitwear Australia becomes heavier, the woolen sweaters for men or woolen sweaters for women will generally be a more comfortable fit.

A fine weight wool jumper will fit neatly under a blazer or under a cardigan Australia, whilst a heavy weight woollen sweater will generally have a wider body, wider sleeves and lower shoulder – this will enable the person to wear another woolen jumper Australia underneath. This may be appropriate for farmers or people working outdoors. 

Another benefit of buying merino woollen sweaters and cardigans Australia is that our woollen jumpers Australia are machine washable. When washing a knitwear Australia, one must only use cold water and not tumble dry. Woolen sweaters for men or woollen sweaters for women will shrink is they are washed in hot water or placed in a tumble dryer. Heat shrink woollen sweaters and therefore it is best to wash them in cold water and lay them flat to dry.
