This buying guide will assist you to think about why you need a woolen jumper or woollen sweater and which type will suit your needs and requirements.

Here are 5 important tips to help you think about what to consider when buying knitwear.

  1. Consider the occasion

What will be the occasion for you to wear the woolen jumper or sweater? Are you purchasing knitwear garments for work or a social outing? Woollen garments are available in a range of colours and designs, so consider what type will suit the occasion. While woollen jumpers provide warmth and comfort, they are not designed for everyday use, so take care in selecting the right jumper for the occasion.

  1. Consider your style

Everyone has their own style. Some people like particular colours, designs and textures and prefer to avoid others. Given each person has their own preference, many options exist to help make selecting a choice easy. Consider your style and what you feel comfortable wearing. Is it a cropped jumper, v-neck sweater, zipped jumper or buttoned cardigan? We stock a complete range to suit all styles.

  1. Consider accompanying clothing

A woolen jumper or sweater is only one part of your clothing attire. What else will you wear with your woollen garment? Will it be a skirt, pants, shirt, blouse or something else? Have a browse of our photos and descriptions to help guide you with on trend combinations.

  1. Consider the warmth required

While all our woollen jumpers and sweaters provide endless warmth and comfort, provided they are maintained carefully, some feature different designs. For example, a v-neck cardigan has an exposed chest, so a shirt or blouse underneath is recommended. Wearing a woollen garment on top of a lighter article of clothing can help to complete the look!

  1. Consider the material

We stock pure wool sweaters, merino wool jumpers, possum fur garments and much more. If you have a particular preference for a single fabric or blended fabric, you can find the right woollen jumper or woollen sweater to suit your requirements. All garments are comfortable to wear with a no itch or irritation feature.
