Looking for a jumper...

Can anyone help?

I’m looking for a navy blue jumper. (kind of fisherman style I think - a chunky warm one, not a thin one) round neck.

It has to be 100% wool or cotton. I’m fed up of shit jumpers & trying to invest in better quality clothes..

Budget - no budget for the right jumper...

I’ve searched & searched & cant find any - if anyone can help that would be amazing.

I think you might be looking for a guernesy jumper. Dp has one that is exactly like what you’re describing. This was the first one that came up when I Googled it so have a look again if you’re struggling.

Me & Em.
Lovely Arran jumpers in a Guernsey style .I think they have a size 12.
I really want to buy one but wool makes me itch madly.

I can recommend woolovers, ordered recently and good price and quality

Try menswear. Often much better quality/more classic colours. More likely to be in natural fibres too.
I’m size 10 and xs in menswear is often on sale.

I’ve got some fabulous, non scratchy, deep dyed jumpers now which often get compliments.

Thanks so much For all your help. I’ve ordered a jumper from WoolOvers - went with a green colour as it was in the sale. & scoured some charity shops this morning. Found a blue 100% cotton jumper - exactly like I was after (for £2.50!! this never happens to me & I can’t believe my luck! ) thanks for tip about men’s jumpers - will
Keep that in mind.
Cheers all
