80% Merino, 20% Nylon

A stylishly oversized jumper in a choice of Seasalt colours inspired by Cornwall. Our Fruity Jumper is made from the softest merino yarn and knitted in a neat, textured garter stitch. Designed for a really relaxed fit, it has a wide, round neckline with a rolled edge finish. The rib trimmed, stepped back hem means it’s slightly longer at the back. Perfect with everything from jeans to printed skirts.

cosy jumper

As it is still quite warm I haven't had the chance to wear the jumper. But it's very soft and has a comfortable fit as is just right for this type of jumper. The colour is exactly what I expected and matches perfectly with the rest of my purchase. Great!

Just right for comfort and warmth, rather large - get size smaller at least - may be a challenge to wash.....eek!

Gorgeous

Gorgeous cosy jumper. However, I'm normally a 12 or 14 in Seasalt clothes, but sent back for a 10 in this jumper that fits beautifully.

Substandard wool

Horrified to see that a jumper worth £65 cannot guarantee that it will not bobble ...I suggest you get a better quality of wool with a good twist. It is terrible to think that a jumper that price may not last more than one season.

Dear Substandard
Thank you all for your comments regarding the Fruity Jumper – Rest assured that we always use the best quality yarn available, in order to achieve a beautifully soft garment. The bobbling that you’re discussing is a natural occurrence common in both good quality as well as poor quality yarns. It is caused by fibres escaping from the twist of the yarn and getting tangled on the surface of the garment. As the garment is worn, over time the ‘fluff’ gets tangled as it is rubbed. This results in little balls of fluff.
We’ve worked closely with our yarn spinner to increase the twist on the yarn. This should help to reduce the bobbling, however we have to be cautious – the tighter the yarn is twisted, the less beautifully soft the garment will feel.
We’re happy with the improved results – we’ve tested this season’s knitwear thoroughly and we hope you’ll be pleased too, and can wear your jumper with the knowledge that it will last for more than one season.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Love these jumpers

This is my 3rd jumper and I love the warmth and comfort of these. Yes, they are problematic to wash and I did shrink my last one to a child's size but it was worth buying another one.

Worried

Having just purchased this jumper today I thought that I would look at the review's.im feeling very concerned as to the amount of negative reviews re pilling and washing SS doesn't seem to be accepting responsibility of this obvious problem..
I thought that I had found myself a really lovely jumper,but now I'm thinking that I had better return it before I get similar problems..£60 is not cheap for a sweater and you wouldn't expect to have problems.

Dear ETH,
Thanks for your review of the Fruity Jumper; you’re correct, there were a number of negative reviews from last season’s jumper. However, listening to our customer feedback we’ve worked closely with our yarn spinner to increase the twist on the yarn. This should help to reduce the bobbling, however we have to be cautious – the tighter the yarn is twisted, the less beautifully soft the garment will feel.
The only way to remove the pilling completely would be to twist the yarn very tightly, or add a chemical treatment to set the fibres, and we really don’t like adding unnecessary chemicals into the manufacturing process.
We’re happy with the improved results – we’ve tested this season’s knitwear thoroughly and we hope you’ll be pleased too.
Best wishes, Seasalt

My second fruity

I looove the style so much I bought it again forgetting about the bobbles! ARGH! I will have to buy a bobble remover this time, because my last one is really only good for around the house. I want to be able to wear this out and about. It's so soft and so beautiful, -the style is fantastic and the colour is divine, but after ONE wear it's already a bobbly mess. I really wish you would do something during the process of making them to prevent this from happening, we pay good money for them, after all. This really shouldn't happen with good quality merino. My hand knits don't pill to this level.

So beautiful!

The stripey Fruity jumper arrived today and the colours are just gorgeous! I can't comment on the bobbling or washing problem at present but having bought three Fruity jumpers last winter, while they do bobble quite a bit, it didn't worry me unduly as I debobbled them by hand or with my debobbler gadget! Certainly with this latest jumper any problems of pilling will be far outweighed by such a stunning mix of colours and style. Love it!

Amazing, as long as you take care of it!

I adore this jumper. I bought the mustard colour last year (had to buy 2 as I strung the first by not following the instructions!) and have just purchased the black in this season.

I get so many compliments on it, I was so excited when it came back this year, but I will say: it’s like anything you love. Care for it properly and it will reward you with a cozy, flattering fit that is perfect dressed up or down. The debobbling is actually pretty satisfying once you get going! Definitely hand was COLD and just give it ages to dry somewhere cool. It’s worth it!

A 'don't buy'

This jumper bobbles so badly. I loved the colour but after a few wears it is only fit to garden in it looks so scruffy. It doesn't deserve one anchor.
