One of the things I suffer with very badly indeed is the cold. I tend to feel it more than most people due to suffering with M.E and Hypothyroidism and even in the summer seem to feel cooler than other people!
Though I own lots of jumpers I tend to favour to layer my clothing and a cardi is great for that meaning I can take it off and slip it on with ease and this is the most recent cardigan I bought, actually I never bought it my friend did for me as a treat for Christmas thankfully!
Looking on the Asda.com website this is no longer available to purchase on there though it is still instore. It is available in sizes 8-22 and is in my opinion a very true to size garment.
So in appearance this is a very long line cardigan indeed and its a light brown colour with gold flecks of thread running running through it. Its a very chunky knit cardigan this one though rather lightweight and its soft to wear and none scratchy. It has a huge fold over v style collar which is ribbed as is the base of each sleeve and to the bottom of the cardigan and all around it. It has seven large and well attached matching coloured and slightly shiny buttons and one press stud style one which again is large to the top of the cardigan and to finish it off two soft feeling and flexible pockets to each side at the front of it.
This is the best cardigan I own! Its got plenty of give in it without it becoming misshapen, its warm, soft and cosy without being heavy and looking bulky and adding a look of weight to me. It goes with anything I want to wear and is great on cooler days as it looks smart worn without a jacket or coat over. I like the size of the pockets, the way the buttons are easy to do up and lined up properly with the holes...simply everything, even the sleeves are foldable to give any woman the right fit!
It is suitable for washing at 30c and no higher and for ironing though I don't feel the need to iron mine. It isn't recommended to be tumble dried just naturally dried which is what I do and again this has given me no issues at all.
This is one of my favourite, most trusted items I own as its just so versatile. It always gets great compliments from people and its usually seen wherever I go!
Its made from mainly Acrylic if anyone is interested in that (lol) and costs £16.00 which again is a real bargain in my eyes for such a long length of cardigan that covers my bum and beyond! A really fabulous buy this is!
