Loved by whippets and their owners worldwide our Fleece Jumper for Whippets is one of our best selling products.
Your whippet will be happy and warm when wearing their Fleece Jumper. It keeps them dry on a drizzly walk and protects their tummy from some splash back when it is muddy.
Following on from the success of our Fleece Snood, we designed our Fleece Jumper for Whippets as customers were asking for a full length version, they wanted a washable jumper that would be perfect for cold walks, running around or snoozing in! At the time Bruno was wearing wool jumpers so the thought of an easy care fleece jumper was good for me too!
Now we have George and Winnie – two young ones who absolutely love to run around and go off exploring. Their fleece jumpers are the most used items in the wardrobe because they are constantly getting wet and muddy and often enjoying a roll in piles of smelly stuff! I love that they can be washed and ready for the next day’s walk with relative ease.
Designed to fit the shape of their bodies the Fleece Jumper is available in 6 sizes, 4 of which have the additional option of a longer back length. The under panel has an elasticated facing so it can be stretched over their deep chests but then fit snugly into their slim tummies thus avoiding any nasty chills getting in!
The long polo neck, when folded back is super thick to keep long slender necks cosy. When unfolded there is plenty to pull over cold ears!
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.
Our length measurement is from neck to end of fleece. Please note that our Fleece Jumpers are not designed to come all the way down to the top of the tail, but to fall short around 10cms (4″) of it.
The Italian Greyhound size is great for pure bred Iggy’s.
Small whippet size is good for puppy whippets or those crossed with Italian Greyhounds*
Smedium whippet size – a new size that is great for average sized whippets, like Winnie, who have slim chests.*
Medium whippet size is good for most small to medium sized whippets, who have deep chests.*
Large whippet size is good for larger whippets, and small lurchers.*
Extra Large size is a new addition for 2019.
* These four sizes can now also be ordered in LONG, with an extra 5cm (2″) added along the length of the back.
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 5-7 days for dispatch from us, and please allow time for delivery.
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.
