Yeah its me again, blathering on about long haul flight attire!! I got my Next tapered jersey trousers and they are brilliant --and I had to size down whoop-- but the jumper I had ordered is bulky and massive, totally impractical for a flight. So now I need a light weight, roomy but warm jumper in navy / khaki / brown for about £40 max which rules out the ideal cashmere
Try to find something in merino wool. Light and drapey but warm too. I have a great boxy sweater from Uniqlo but they don't have their knitwear in yet. Searching 'boxy merino sweater' on Shopstyle found this which is gorgeous but only available in XXS.
yep, merino wool is good; thin and rolls up very small. If you can wait for new stock, Uniqlo is great as pp said.
Do you need a wool jumper the other end though? If not I'd be inclined to go for a cotton knit, but wear layers; vest, t-shirt then a cotton knit jumper with a large wool wrap to use as a blanket. That should be warm enough?
