Best jumper

I like a good, chunky woollen jumper. I’ve tried woo lovers but find quality v poor. I’m currently wearing a Samuel Windsor - poor finish but ok once you’ve sewn up the badly sewn seams etc.

What is everyone else wearing, Jumper wise?

I bought a ski top from the middle of Lidl before Christmas at a discounted price of £3.89
I can't believe how warm it is, I wish I'd bought 3 or 4
It's really clingy & shows up my gut, so I wear a sweat shirt over the top of it ;)


British army one, £4 each and last a long time. Think how much money the MOD spend on their design and quality for rugged use and I don't think there's much that can touch them and at £4 each you can't go far wrong.


I have a heap of MKM ones merino possum liner and wool outer best jumper I know of warm and even soaking wet still warm
they also make a hoodie that is bit longer so covers yer arse a bit better if fencing no more builders crack or cold back

Depending on what work you're doing... I have one of these

Pure wool, with a 2nd thin polyester windbreaker lining. You do cook in it if you're doing a lot of physical moving about about but it is brilliant when out on the bike - especially at lambing time. Wearing it this week with these cold snowy conditions, keep toasty warm on the bike.

I also have 2 wool Edinburgh Woolen Mill jumpers which must be about 18 years old. They're also very good.
