Really soft and warm

I am not a fan of wearing a hat because I don’t always find them very comfortable but as I was buying the sweatshirt I though I would give it a go, and I love it. No more cold doggie walks for me

So So Happy!

I ordered a sweatshirt for my daughter. When it didn’t arrive as expected I contacted Michelle. She gave a quick, clear explanation and an honest apology. To speak to someone who clearly cares and takes genuine pride in her work more than made up for the delay (which ended up not being long anyway). My daughter was delighted with her sweatshirt. It’s a lovely, quality item.

Love love love my hoodie

Everyone should have one. Best hoodie I have ever bought. I will be getting more for me family and friends. Thankyou

Lovely quality

This is a great design on a good quality tee. The sizing runs large so I'd order down a size if you don't want a baggy fit

A wearable comfort blanket

Comfy, warm and like a second skin; so pleased with my hoodie. Highly recommend this brand and this item.
