My Wish List for Summer Knitwear

My shape has changed and so too has the weather, so I need a couple of jumpers for the evenings or cooler days. 

I will be publishing a video shortly, but basically I have a waist again - hooorrrah. We're now in that changeable weather where the days are hot but the late afteroons and evenings are cool/cold. Perfect for a skimpy jumper. Shapely, but with some warmth.

Thankfully I have been introduced via blogging to Woolovers which is just the ticket. You'll have read in recent blog posts, how COLD I get when I am in the park with Aaron for hours, particularly when it nears sunset. Yes, it's warm when we arrive, but NOT when we depart for home. 

A Spring/Summer lightweight jumper (or two) would be just the ticket and cashmere, cotton, silk and wool sound like divine ingredients!

I wanted to show you my personal favourite lightweight Summer jumpers if I were to buy a jumper right now. My wish list is here:
Do you like my choices, or do you see something you like more? If you forced me to pick ONE, or my budget, most likely dictated that I could afford one, it would have to be number 3. 

In case you can't read the text on my collage, here are the details and where to find them:

30% silk / 70% cotton
26 pounds or 2 for 45

90% cotton / 10% cashmere
29 or 2 for 52

30% cashmere / 70% merino
38 or 2 for 70

30% cashmere / 70% merino
49 or 2 for 90

I love that when you hover over colour options, the picture of the item just automatically changes colour.

Woolovers is a really lovely website with a great deal of choice. The colour selection alone is phenomenal. I love the materials, colours and the fact that they've been going 26 years with such a bespoke tailor made service, so targeted to their consumer's tastes. I better stop looking as now I have just spotted the Aran coat cardigan which would be perfect for a Summer's evening *drools* and how perfect, with my son being called Aaron ;-) and it's only 49 pounds, despite being pure British wool!

This post is a collaboration with Woolovers.


  1. Beautiful and reasonable and that cardi coat literally has Aaron's name on it so it's rude not to get daddy to buy it, I think ;) xx

  2. Striped knitwear looks great for me, lovely knitwear. Thanks for sharing. Check out White + Warren for new knitwear design and etc. for women, men and for babies.
