I too had the same experience with this jumper, such a shame because it looked great when I first wore it. To LTS's credit they gave me a refund straight away but I am very disappointed to see it's still on sale on the web site as they are wasting anyone's time who buys it.
Sorry, this product has sold out and is no longer available
Retro chic chenille tunic with vertical cable detailing.
'A gorgeous rich color and a vertical cable design that visually slims your frame. We're loving it with skinny jeans or leggings.' Sandra, Buyer
Chenille is made by cutting yarn and fraying the ends which means that this type or yarn has a tendency to shed, especially if subjected to a lot of friction. Therefore we have reviewed the washing instructions for this garment and we suggest that this item be hand wash only. Do not subject this product to excessive rubbing when washing and do not wring. Line dry is also suggested. Do not put this garment through a machine simulated hand wash cycle and do not tumble dry.

Totally agree with other reviews. I carefully hand washed this garment and the lint was and is EVERYWHERE including all over the bathroom (try removing it from a damp room-no fun) More of this jumper is in the Dyson vacuum than anywhere else! I felt like posting a picture of the cleaner full of red fluff. Poor show, should recall all stock.
Please DO NOT buy this sweater. All the comments below are true - it gets ruined in the wash and covers all other clothes washed at the same time in red. Even when hand washed I am not convinced it will last, as I already noticed yarn falling out when I worn it the first (and only) time.
Everything everyone says here is correct. This jumper shreds like I have never seen before. It must be half the weight it was. I have just wrote to LTS about a full refund. I refuse to buy something at this price (full price) and it be this bad. I am not sure what is happening recently at LTS but things are going downhill. Very poor quality, do not buy this at any price.
Horrible lint everywhere disintegrates in the wash. Threw it out. Contaminated all the other sweaters in my closet with red dust.
I so wish I had taken the previous reviews on board before I ordered. I very rarely write reviews but his one just had to be written to warn others NOT to BUY this unless it's reduced to about a fiver which is about what it's worth. I think we should all have a refund for our pains. Yes it's got the washing instructions on the label but it has lost at least a quarter, maybe a third, of it's original bulk now it has been washed - just once! It's hardly a sweater now, barely more than a T-shirt.!
I was excited to get this sweater, but I am going to have to throw it away. Lint gets everywhere all over furniture, everything. It's crazy!
Thank you for your review. We are sorry you have experienced this. Please note that this item is hand wash only.
Previous rating is not exaggerated. My experience washing this sweater was exactly the same - delicate, cold cycle. Washed sweater twice thinking second time would eliminate some of the lint but it just kept deteriorating. A mass of red lint plugged the boot drain of my front load washing machine. Had to air fluff in dryer to remove all the red balls clinging to sweater inside and out. Absolute handfuls of lint in the lint screen. Wore it once and it was stunning but it is going back...
