The best cosy jumpers on sale right now

by Ellen Bird
27th Nov 2018

I have a problem with in-store sales. Let’s be honest, bargains bring pure chaos to the storefront. Everything is everywhere, all sizes are gone, sales assistants are hiding in the stockrooms, and you’re left dealing with overly enthusiastic crowds. But online sales, well that’s what I’m all about. Give me a cup of hot cocoa (with almond milk, of course!), fluffy Pennys’ pyjamas, and my overused debit card and sure look, I’m a happy gal.

As if you didn’t know already (especially after being caught in this morning’s ultra violent storm), it’s sweater weather. Temperatures have dipped and radiators around the country have revved up; fighting against regular Irish drizzle and freezing nights. So what better way to cheer yourself up than cuddling up on the couch and going Christmas crazy in this season’s fiery sales? Bonus points if you opt for something sustainable and ethically made. As a girl on a super tight budget but also someone that needs a new cosy knit, seasonal sales have been become a blessing – I’ve been eyeing up an Everlane cashmere for months. I’ve concluded that today is a great chance to save on some well-made product.

You probably have your own reasons for some retail therapy (or maybe you don’t), but who doesn’t love a good cosy knit with a few pennies slashed off the price-tag? Scouting out gems from an overwhelming digital pile of product can be tedious, which is why I’ve sussed out some of the best cosy jumpers you can buy as of today.
