Collezione Pure Merino Wool Crew Neck Jumper
What a disappointing purchase. I bought this for my son who is aged 35 and lives in New Zealand. The quality of the wool was poor and badly dyed giving rise to funny white marks in the knit. The colour was drab and lifeless. I expected a classic smart light weight sweater and in reality it was a poor quality cheap looking garment. My son would not have been seen dead in it!

Do not buy this jumper
I have bought three merino wool jumpers from M&S previously. One was returned because stitching came undone not long after purchase. The stitching in the shoulder seams of the other two developed "ladders" which in one of them also ran down the shoulder of the garment. I did not return these as they were no longer new and it is not easy to get into my nearest M&S branch, but even so they should not have developed these faults and on reflection I should have returned them. Merino wool jumpers are an ideal weight for cool autumn days when lambswool would perhaps be too warm, so this autumn, despite my previous experiences with M&S merino wool jumpers, I purchased this Collezione garment. Now, within 3 weeks and less than half a dozen wearings, the neck band has become unstitched and it is definitely going to be returned.

For me it's now Pure Merino all the time.
Having spent too much money buying myself either 100% or part Cashmere jumpers over the past few years, I've rather belatedly realised that 'Pure Merino' not only look and feel as good but are streets ahead in the longevity of wear...... at much less expense.

Lovely blue merino jumper
A lovely colour for spring. Soft and stylish. Fit true to size.
