This is a follow-up to an earlier thread started by Andrea, who was looking for washable sweaters for winter travel. That is, sweaters that were labeled for washing rather than “dry clean only”, which is impractical for travel (not to mention an eco-crime).
I just received a catalogue from Woolovers, a UK company that has a US website with US shipping rates. Right now they are offering 20% off your order with code SPU20, and I was not charged shipping even though my order did not meet their $125 threshold for free shipping. Nor was there sales tax applied—-a nice perk since our Washington State sales tax is quite high.
Their focus is on wool in various forms, and I only say one sweater in the catalog that was “dry clean only”, probably because of the style (a biker-jacket, cute but not good for travel anyway). The offer 100% lambs wool sweaters and Merino-cashmere blends (90/10 or 80/20) in lots of styles, and all I saw were labeled “machine washable”. They also have some 100% cashmere sweaters that are labeled “hand washable” which is fine for a travel sweater.
They have styles for both men and women.
Of course I know nothing of the quality, but I thought is was worth a try, and ordered the “Jackie” roll neck sweater which is Merino/cashmere for $63 at the sale price.

Maybe some of our UK friends can weigh in on this company?
