If you're worried about your jumper's longevity now spring is approaching, please remind yourself 1) It's cold in the UK 98% of the time* 2) if Jane Fonda can re-wear her Oscar's frock with no cares, you can re-wear your knitwear 3) everyone knows that price per wear for jumpers basically means it cost you 10p.
