Sweater vs. Hoodie

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Sweater and Hoodie is that the Sweater is a knitted garment for the upper body and Hoodie is a sweatshirt with a hood.

  • Sweater

    A jumper(British English), or jersey, is a garment intended to cover the torso and arms. A jumper is either a pullover or a cardigan, distinguished in that cardigans open at the front while pullovers do not. In American English, a pullover may also be called a sweater. Some British dictionaries include cardigans as a type of jumper, while others do not; in the latter case, there is no hypernym equivalent to sweater covering both pullovers and cardigans.

    Sweaters are worn by adults and children of all genders; often over a shirt, blouse, T-shirt, or other top, but sometimes next to the skin. Sweaters were traditionally made from wool, but can now be made of cotton, synthetic fibers, or any combination thereof. Sweaters are maintained by washing or dry cleaning, and the use of a lint roller or pill razor.

  • Hoodie

    A hoodie (also called a hooded sweatshirt, hooded jumper or hoody) is a sweatshirt with a hood. Hoodies often include a muff sewn onto the lower front, and (usually) a drawstring to adjust the hood opening.
