1. It's the one on THIS link.

Originally ordered it in the colour shown but they seem to have run out of the grey, so have suggested the replacement pictured below in brown?

2. This one in wine/berry/white colour

I'm small and asian colouring, 5'5, 32D, size 8. looking for something warm and casual which I can layer under barbour waxed and maybe put another polo neck under as I live in scotland brrrr.

This is an image of the second one,.

which one is warmer?

the bibico one says nordic style, but then i hear fair isle is very warm too? I really suffer with raynauds but do like my walking out so warmer the better.

Can't afford the REALLy hardcore nordic ones

2nd as the 1st one is out of stock?

Although both are lovely smile

Thats ok, I've ordered it a couple days ago so they are asking if I want to try on the brown one in the photographed as their last grey one is slightly damaged smile

i normally just get the really cheap synthetic ones, but am trying to Beat The Scottish Winter

You are too right...wool is a worthy investment and synthetic can never measure up. Look at Celtic and Co. as well. They use exceptional quality wool and the sales are quite good.

I would go with the second jumper for layering. Cardigans and wraps can be tricky under coats.

Celtic and Co. I've seen their jumpers in TK Maxx.

The second one is lovely.

Velocitractor Sun 28-Dec-14 13:25:54

Ooh in that case I'd take the slightly damaged grey one (it's lovely) but from a practical perspective, the 2nd one might be warmer?

I still stand by 'both are lovely' though. Sorry, no help!

The second one, ideally in the cream with the navy fairisle. I dislike the first one as it looks scratchy and it's making that petite model look like a fullback!

The cardigan. I don't like roll necks.

For straight warmth, I'd have thought the polo would bee warmer - the cardi has a great big (and I'd have it for this reason alone) V neck, the polo will keep your chest and neck warm.

went for the roll-neck, waiting for the postman now smile hope its nice in person, i'm not an experienced online shopper but have had a couple of "oh no" moments as I open a box....hmm

celtic and co looks great and i will watch out for that name, just at the moment they don't seem to have the "exact" thing that ticks my boxes.
