What do Fearne Cotton, Miley Cyrus and Frankie Bridge have in common? Yep, you’ve guessed it.
We hope you are also wearing your most festive knit right now, because today spells the annual Christmas Jumper Day.
Everyone’s getting in on the action – including some of our favourite celebs, who are showing their Christmas cheer and donning some festive knits. Just check out Fearne Cotton and Miley’s ‘elfies, as well as The Saturday’s Frankie Bridge who is giving us a lesson on how it’s done.
Lots of our favourite high street brands have us sorted for the occassion, with loads of fun designs on sale. Primark have been donating £2 from every Christmas jumper sold this week to charity Make A Wish.
As well as this, our fave Swedish cider have got on board with another Christmas jumper extravaganza.
We can’t think of a better pairing than a super-comfty winter jumper to wear while we cosy up with a glass of spiced apple cider, so imagine how chuffed we were when we found out that Swedish cider company, Kopparberg had teamed up with London-based knitwear designer Leutton Postle to create the cosiest knit we’ve seen this Christmas.
The two brands have teamed up to make the perfect cosy knit to wear while you drink your Kopparberg Spiced Apple Cider. Talk about a winning winter combo.
The designer duo, Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle travelled to the Swedish town of Kopparberg to get inspiration for their design. They were inspired by the sweet red apples used to make the cider, the golden yellow leaves on the trees and the stunning blue hue of the town’s crystal lake. All the colours were pulled together into a traditional Fair Isle knit pattern.

Postle explained, “We designed ‘The Kopparberg’ to have an offbeat yet wearable design and want the owner to feel stylish, individual and, most of all, warm and cosy inside and out!”
The fashion-forward brand weren’t planning on putting out a novelty knit but a stylish essential that will keep you warm all winter. The jumpers are unisex and will set you back just £150. You can buy them in store at Machine A in Soho or HERE.
