Welcome to the Darks – 6 shades of Dark colours – Navy, Teal, Black, Forest, Charcoal and Plum
This Fleece Jumper for Whippets – the original roll neck, was inspired by customer demand for a longer version of our Fleece Snood and my beloved first whippet Bruno, who absolutely hated the cold and needed to be kept warm due to his alopecia. Customers wanted a washable jumper that wouldn’t restrict their dogs fun while out, one that they could run around in, plod along in or simply snooze in.
It has a super long neck that can be pulled over the ears on very cold days. It is the ideal item of clothing for your hound all year round, the only time we don’t reach for ours is in super hot weather, but if we are camping or sitting outside in summer on they go! It can get chilly under a clear sky.
As with our all our jumpers a harness can easily be worn over the top.
It’s super easy to wash when you return from a muddy walk or when your dog has enjoyed a roll in a pile of smelly stuff! It can be freshly laundered and ready for the next day’s walk with relative ease.
So, to recap, our fleece jumpers are:
- Available in 6 sizes
- From Italian Greyhound to Small Galgo
- Made from super soft anti pill fleece
- Hand made in Kent
- Shaped to fit your hounds body
- Elastic under panel for snug fit
- Long neck
- Washable at 30 degrees
- Dries quickly
- Available in longer lengths
Our length measurement is from the neck to end of the jumper. Please note that our Fleece Jumpers are not designed to come all the way to the top of the tail, they sit around 10cms (4″) short of it – but you can now order 2” extra length if you like a longer jumper but for boys bear in mind their anatomy!
The Italian Greyhound size is great for pure bred Iggy’s*
Small is good for puppy whippets or those crossed with Italian Greyhounds*
Smedium is good for a medium size who have slim chests.*
Medium is good for most medium sized whippets who have deep chests.*
Large is good for larger whippets, and small lurchers.*
Extra Large is good for whippet cross breeds, maybe whippet saluki, or small galgos.
* These five sizes can now also be ordered in LONG, with an extra 5cm (2″) added along the length of the back and 2cms (1”) to the underneath.
Our Fleece Jumper for Whippets is available in many colours. We have now split the current range into 3 categories for you – Brights, Darks and Lights. The selection on this page is colours that will be disappearing soon, so don’t miss your chance.
These measurements are the size of the garment – not the dog, please remember that these jumpers are designed to fall short of the top of the tail by around 10cms (4″) but this is a personal preference, should you want them to be longer – for boys bear in mind their anatomy!
And remember, the fabric has a good amount of stretch in it, so this is a guide to sizing. If you are worried that your dog does not fit our sizing, you might find this blog useful to read.

Although we aim to keep all Fleeces in stock, this becomes difficult at busy times due to the number of size and colour variations we offer. It may take 7-10 working days for dispatch from us. Please allow time for delivery.
Please note that the fleece colour can vary slightly from that in the images
