  1. Sweater

    A sweater, jumper, pullover or jersey is a knit garment intended to cover the torso and arms, popular with men, women and children of all ages. It is often worn over a shirt, blouse, T-shirt, or other top, but may also be worn next to the skin. Sweaters were traditionally made from wool, but can now be made of cotton, synthetic fibers, or any combination thereof.
