Christmas knitwear

I love a bit of Christmas knitwear. Let's just be clear, I do not mean something with reindeers or snowmen on, but a nice, neutral, good quality knit which can be paired with a statement necklace, denim shirt, or a bright-coloured t-shirt underneath, with cuffs poking out. Something you look forward to wearing, to see you through the cold days of winter.

I always look for knitwear with a majority share of cotton, silk or wool, and so the trawl of some of my usual go-to retailers left me disappointed, namely Whistles, who are doing a roaring trade in nylon this year. Surprising, seeing as their knits, whilst lovely, aren't exactly cheap. But Cos, Massimo Dutti and Zara are doing a nice line in fine yarns, so have a look below and take your pick. (What's that? You're still after something for me for Christmas? The dip-dye number would really suit me, don't you think...?)
