PLAIN TALKIN KNIT
Very poor quality
Initially really pleased with the colour, feel, and fit of this jumper. I purchased the pink option. However, after one wash, which was exactly as per the care label, it has shrunk, gone out of shape along the hem, and bobbled really badly, particularly on the sleeves. It still fits (just), but it is no longer any good for anything but wearing around the house. My first purchase, and on this quality, likely to be my last. A shame, as the clothes look lovely.

Destroyed on First Wash
I loved this jumper as soon as I bought it. Beautifully soft, great fit and such a cheerful green. However, after the first wash it was completely unwearable! Washed it in accordance with the instructions - didn't inadvertently put it on a hot wash or anything like that - but it came out misshapen and lumpy. Worn twice and then fit for the bin! Not what I've become accustomed to with WS - I have assorted WS knitwear, heaps of cardigans, so this is a severe disappointment. It also says that it's prone to bobbling on the label, although I think the amount of bobbling I witnessed after wearing it for about 3 hours was really quite excessive. Really sad. =[

I bought the charcoal and navy jumpers in the sale and am delighted with them both. I never buy jumpers because they make me feel restricted and can look too bulky. I took a chance on these because they were a bargain to team up with jade jeggings and am really pleased with them. They're soft, light weight but warm and don't make you feel larger than you are. Now I've tried I'd love more colours, and a skirt to go with them...oh dear! I see more purchases ahead!

Sweet little knit!
I already have this in a dark purple from last year-it has washed and worn brilliantly! And it was an amazing bargain in the sale..I sized up to a 14 so I can wear something underneath when it's really cold!

I have just bought this in the sale - a real bargain. the charcoal colour is great and looks good with almost any other colour - nice soft knit and the little pockets are a bonus - I know I will get lots of wear from this jumper.

I have just bought it and I am so happy becasue it is just wonderful. It goes well with skirts and skinny trousers. You can wear it with top underneath when it is cooler outside. Beautiful. White Stuff cares about each detail. Thank you.

Will live in it!
Love this jumper! Soft next to the skin. Warm and cosy. Will live in it over the next few months. Looks great with a short grey skirt. Love the grey detailing to the cuffs and hem.

Great staple item for Autumn/Winter
I was concerned that the wool might be a bit itchy, but took the gamble and bought it anyway. So glad I did, the wool is soft against the skin. Originally I bought just the enamel coloured one from the store, but when I got home I regretted not purchasing the pink one as well and so I ordered it online and I am very happy happy with both.

I didn't realise how much I wanted this sweater until I tried it on and came away with both charcoal & pink versions in the bag! It fits well and is really soft & cosy, 3/4 sleeves are just right for this time of year. A very flattering knit that can be dressed up or down.

Nice FItting Jumper
I got this jumper in the pink colour I did find it came up small so I went for the size18 which flows nice over the tummy and not to tight under the arms.

My favorite jumper
I have had this jumper and I call it my comfy reliable best jumper.easy to wear ,I have washed it hundreds of times and it still keeps it's shape .I love it .

A lovely all round knit
I really loved this jumper, it was soft, comfy and a great fit. I washed according to instructions and unfortunately it shrunk in the wash. It still looks great but I can no longer wear it over anything bulkier than a strap top! That said, I still wear it a lot and would just recommend buying a size bigger as it is such a fab jumper!

More colours please
This is a great shape and fit (though wouldn't object to a little more length) but I'd like it in more colours - maybe a dark, rusty red or an aubergine.

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.

great basic jumper
This is a nice little basic navy jumper. I went for the 8, which was just right and even the sleeves were ok too.I bought it to go with a denim skirt. More colours please, as by the time i got round to ordering it most were out of stock X

Lightweight but really cosy
I bought this to go with a White Stuff skirt and really love it. Its light enough to wear in the office but keeps you warm too (I dont know how WS manage that). I chose the green which goes surprisingly well with most other colours. I bought the 8 which I felt was true to size. I notice a few people had problems with bobbling but I find if you wash it inside out it stays looking good.

A White Stuff staple
I've got two of these and love them to bits. The navy one this season looks fab with jeans and a toning scarf. Washes well and although there's slight pilling around the underarm area it's not so bad as to be unmanageable. I usually size down to get a better fit. More of these please WS! I'd like a baby pink one ...

navy PLAIN TALKIN KNIT
bought this jumper today saw it on line then went to the shop to buy it, love it very much comfortable,pretty and feminine matches my whitestuff skirts

Love this jumper. Fits beautifully and so comfortable. Bought it in the charcoal and goes with practically everything. I have hardly taken it off since buying its month ago! My only gripe is that is does not wash well - this is of course can always be a problem with knitwear and straight from washing needs to be pulled back in to shape. It has also bobbled quite a bit. But despite this, I would still buy again as it is such a versatile jumper and so soft! I am a size 10 and size 10 fitted perfectly (not too baggy). Also, being only 5' 2" the length was also perfect - not too long like a lot of jumpers! Am going to re-buy in the blackcurrent.

great colour, but too short
i loved the colour of this jumper, also thought that the material was very good. but it is too short for me (i am 5'10''). a bigger size would not fit on properly and still be too short.... i have returned it.

Gorgeous warm knit!!
I have this in the red and the blackcurrant. Great to wear with jeans or skirt. Good quality and I am sure they will get lots of wear. Fits true to size.

Great colours,just not sure onthe fit as it was shapeless, which can be a good thing sometimes, but noting his case. Nice contrast piping.

Fab wool jumper nice and warm gorgeous blackcurrant colour perfect for cold weather when you need a jumper with some wool in it.
25 November 2013
Soft, cosy, and lovely colours.
I have this in green and blackcurrant, which are similar to the bottlegrass in jeans and purple in jeans respectively. Both go well together with the jeans. Very soft and not itchy ( I seem to be very sensitive to anything a bit woolly ). Neckline not too low and fit seems true to size. Very useful jumpers and I know I shall flog them to death !! Soooo comfy to wear !
25 November 2013
lovely feel and comfortable
This is a lovely soft and easy to wear jumper.
I ordered the Charcoal in 10 and may order the Blackcurrant in an 8 as I prefer a less baggy fit.I bought it at 20% discount which was definitely worth it.
24 November 2013
Knit arrived yesterday and couldn't wait to wear it.
I ordered my usual size and was pleased with the fit (okay I admit I was glad it had a bit of extra room for my Christmas tummy!!).
Only problem is which colour to order next....
22 November 2013
Fabulous versatile jumper!
Bought both the Blackcurrant and Dark Grey which goes with lots in my whitestuff wardrobe, great fit, true to size and good quality garment.
Very pleased and would recommend.
May get the Navy too!
22 November 2013
so glad i bought this - i love the touch of trim colour there is, as well as the simple easy-to-wear but smart-enough overall look. It's cosy too, but not at all heavy.
