Fabric and Fit tips - Wool

Natural fibres have far more advantages than man-made products, and wool is no exception. The key with wool is to consider density; the thicker the knit, the bulkier it will be on your frame. This can work to your advantage, for example, a lean rectangle body shape can use an oversized, woolly jumper to break up the 'runner bean' look and add interest. Conversely, it can also add bulk to a frame in an unflattering way. Apple body shapes may look much larger in thick, chunky knits. Far better to layer with thinner pieces than one big one.
