I just discovered them, having looked through the catalogue that MIL had expecting to find a Cotton Trader vibe. The merino/cashmere jumpers were reduced to £20 so I bought a men's size medium in grey, black and a navy one in a v neck. I can't always do jumpers as have large bosoms but the oversized fit is really flattering on my large frontage and they look and feel really stylish. Even my 12 year old DS said wow nice jumper mum. DH thinks he's going to be able to share them with me and wear them too. We'll see about that (he spills stuff, down himself, like a toddler).

My sister always gets her jumpers from Woolovers. Think I'll have a look!

I think woolovers are great - huge range of colours and styles
I hope you already know about the WOOLOVER RULE as it's known in my office?
They are the DFS of the jumper world. Always got sales on. Never be tempted to pay full price unless it's an emergency grin

Thanks for that tip dun1urkin ... I thought it might just have been a one off. Looking more like I may well invest ina couple in bright colours and really push the boat out!

Are they ok fo someone who's a size 10? Reviews always say that sizes are too big...

grin dun I bought 2 jumpers for £45 with free P&P , this will be their 3rd winter still going strong.
I am flooded with brochures and emails with "Sale" prices.
Yes they are good jumpers but YY to the DFS of knitwear.

LaCer they put the garment measurements on the website and they do vary from style to style, but they are accurate (have checked with a tape measure when things have arrived)
So check the measurements rather than automatically ordering a medium like I did with my first order

Love Woolovers! Also shop there via Topcashback site and get 9 percent cash back.
Just stocked up on jumpers and cardigans with 50 percent off merino and cashmere on Wednesday. The outlet bit of the site is worth a look too.

I bought a size medium and I'm a size 12 so if you want the jumper to be a loose fit then you'd probably be best to order a small.

Woolovers are fabulous, their customer service is outstanding.

I bought DH a jumper from there, when it arrived the stitching on the seam of the arm was undone. Phoned them, they sent another jumper out straight away and didn't want the original returned, just told me to keep it.

I got the lady who does our clothing alterations to fix it and so DH got 2 jumpers for the price of one (which yes, was heavily discounted in the first place).

I love them - such a great range of styles and colours.

I don't want to rain on the Woolovers' parade, but I've found their wool/cashmere cardigans went a bit baggy and bobbly too. I like the silk/cotton cardigans for British Summer wear.

Hmm, I have mixed feelings. I went through a mad woolovers buying phase. Their shop is just up the road from me too. What I have found is that they don't wash well. I have always followed the washing instructions and the jumpers have either shrunk or become very misshapen and baggy, despite careful laying out.
Never buy full price.
