    ⚪️”The sweater weather really is here! We woke up to frosty morning and it’s been a lovely sunny cold day.. perfect for wearing jumpers.. and we have plenty of them in this house! But the 🐩gang won’t wear any jumpers which aren’t made of natural materials (wool, cashmere or spring time cotton) – only exception is fleeces in damp weather. Reason for this – simply; I don’t want the gang to wear acrylic cheap jumpers which are not comfortable and won’t let their skin to breathe.. I honestly think these 💯% wool quality jumpers are 👌🏻 ..from @lovemydog_uk -they are so warm, feel comfy, breathable & light shower resistant…I wash them in wool wash & use wool detergent.. I love them.. and now let’s get going to the walks while the daylight is still here!”⚪️ – the🐩gang SWIPE #love #wool #natural #jumpers #winter #squad #dogphotography #poodle #photography #dogsofinstagram #poodlesofinstagram
