Both versions  - dressier (such as this one) and more casual and hardy - are staples of autumn and winter wardrobes.

  1. I've owned several cashmere/merino polonecks over the years and they are worth every penny, Muffy.

    Some days in winter all I needed was one layered over a T-shirt or a long sleeve thermal skivvy with jeans and no jacket required !

  2. Let’s say that you are a newbie when it comes to SWNE and you see this post and you are impressed with the paintings, the photography, the clothing and while you can’t see her face there is just something that tells you that if you could see the face that it would be ..., well, let me tell you that she is every bit as attractive as you would expect. We regulars get a glimpse occasionally and there is that certain something in the look that confirms the effort and talent is what you’d expect given the overall quality of the blog.

  3. So very beautiful! Thank you!

  4. That is a great color on you! Interesting that on a jumper it's called a roll neck. An American sweater of the same style would be a turtleneck, with a roll neck being something else entirely.

    1. I've heard of cowlnecks being referred to as a turtleneck by some.

      I grew up in the 1970s with " poloneck " being the term, but these days most people I know just go with " turtleneck. "
