What do you get when you cross luxurious lambswool, a punchy colour and a killer price? One of the season’s knitwear essentials, says menswear editor Ian Wright
Who doesn’t love a lamb? Their cute little faces, their endearing bleat and their ability to create some of the softest wool around makes them one of fashion’s best friends. Their toasty fleece has been used particularly effectively for this classic cable knit sweater, an ideal winter warmer. Available in four tones (it also comes in red, purple and grey), it’s the bright blue option that stands out for being both vivid and versatile. What’s more, you get a touch of luxury for less – it’s rare to find such a high-quality jumper (not to mention a shrink-resistant and machine-washable one) for under 40 pounds, which makes it as friendly to your wallet as it is to your wardrobe.
