Aah-rated stuff as cute couture emerges from hibernation ...
Last year, jumpers took on a life of their own, dominating winter wardrobes. This season they're back in full force, but gone are the snowflakes and Christmas trees, replaced by a Noah's Ark of statement creations.
From festive reindeer and penguins to domestic dogs and cats, there's a woollen work of wildlife art to please everyone, Femail rounds up the cutest clothing critters.
Owls are undoubtedly the standout creature feature of this season. If you can't afford Burberry's £795 cashmere owl, hoot for joy over Internacionale's bargain sweater, £9.99 (0141 522 2020).
