Itch Free Knitwear

When I first noticed this on the rails earlier in the autumn, I thought it could only be a leftover sweater from circa 1983. But no! It appears that it’s back in fashion again. Forget granny knits, and banish all thoughts of the blue rinse brigade; it appears that chenille is the yarn we should all be sporting for A/W2017. This is good news!
Now, I’m not going to lie; I have struggled slightly with this … maybe I’m just too used to the finer cotton, cashmere and merino knits and the sleeker silhouettes that they give. But I’ve had a little look online and there are quite a few that I think would be a stylish addition to any wardrobe.

I’m going to start with my favourite, the Shell Pink Chenille Cable Knit Oversized Jumper, €29.99 from New Look. Imagine this paired with Chelsea boots and skinny jeans? Or over a midi length straight skirt and sock boots? Or a pair of my beloved Next faux leather jeggings and trainers? I think I may be talking myself into a purchase. Soft and cosy, this oversized shape would be so easy to wear on irritated skin and the colour is perfect for hiding any scalp psoriasis issues.

A similar cable knit again, but this time with a higher neckline, the Chenille Cable Knit Funnel Neck Jumper from Marks & Spencer, €47.50.

You’ve gotta’ love a batwing shape for providing superb coverage of a less than perfect figure! Zara’s Chenille Batwing Sleeve Sweater €29.95, comes in this rather appropriate salmon pink shade, so yet again all the boxes are ticked.

If these colours are a little too much on the pastel side for your taste, there are a range of other shades in all stores. Lots of blacks, browns and navy, but clearly I’m having a pink moment as I was rather drawn to this Pink Chenille Knit Oversized Roll Neck Jumper, €50.00 from River Island.

Or perhaps you have a favourite slogan tee that you don’t want hidden away for the winter months? For a mere €29, this can be solved with the addition of a longline Chenille Slouchy Cardigan from Boohoo.

It does make such a lovely change to be able to talk about knitwear that doesn’t scratch or irritate skin … and regular readers will know that if itch is an issue, there is one cream that I will always recommend. I am constantly being asked to feature skincare products on the blog but I rarely do because as we know, what works for one person with psoriasis, may not work for someone else. Suu Balm however, is different. It doesn’t claim to clear or cure your skin, but it does promise to ease all trace of itch within five minutes. And basically, that’s exactly what it does! So if like me, you have suffered from sleepless nights due to itchy skin, or having been driven slightly crazy by an itchy foot, leg or arm, then this is your answer! Available nationwide from pharmacies in Ireland and from Lloyds chemists and Amazon in the UK.

That’s my lot for this week.
