PLAIN TALKIN KNIT
I love it, But....
I bought two of these jumpers before Christmas - purple, and red - and loved them. I machine washed the purple one as directed, and was disappointed to find it had shrunk and was very bobbly. As a result, I have only hand washed the red one - very carefully!- and it is fine. Looks as good as new. A lesson learnt...?

Loved it initially, not so much now
I just adored this jumper! Bought it in the red in early December and wore and wore and wore it. Put off washing it as didn't want it to bobble but my 9mth old spectacularly puked all over me. It's now been washed three times and has bobbled quite badly under the arms. I read that this is normal and the bobbles pull off easily. It doesn't look as smart though so rather than smart office wear I've put it in the jeans drawer now. I bought a 14, and I was so pleased with the fit, but it did shrink enough that it's a bit higher than I'd like now. WS do say to expect bobbles and shrinkage however.

Looks 10 years old after a month or two
I loved this jumper - bought in store in Charcoal. So versatile, can dress it up or down. But I am just ironing now and have been driven to review it. It is covered in bobbles and looks old and tatty as a result. Despite having washed it inside out on a cold wool wash, using fabric conditioner - exactly as the label says. I can no longer dress it up, and is relegated to the gardening/allotment clothes drawer.
Poor, poor, poor quality.
