Go Buy Now: Cashmere

Pictured L to R: Cashmere cardigan Zara €99.99,  red cashmere button down cardi F&F Tesco €52, Purple v-neck jumper F&F Tesco €52 and grey v-neck jumper GAP, €110.

They say that the coldest winter yet is ahead of us and if the past few days are anything to go by,  it’s time to stock up on  the winter woollies already.

Opaque tights from DressmyLegs.ie and a GAP roll neck jumper are already at the ready but I find that the only thing to keep me really warm is to layer up with something that has pure cashmere wool in it.  It’s luxurious to touch and keeps you really warm; with the added bonus that it’s not too bulky or heavy on.

Cashmere used to be really expensive but every year it’s becoming more accessible to buy. After scouring the shops, I’ve rounded up the best cashmere buys around:

For Men

The GAP has a great cashmere range for men’s v-neck jumpers. They are not available in the GAP Irish shops (Arnotts and Dundrum) – only online.  At £89.95 (approx €110) they are not cheap but will last a lifetime, just take care to only wash them in cold water or they will shrink!

Look out for special offers on The Gap’s website (sign up for their newsletter and you get 15% off your first online purchase) – just this week they had 30% off everything and free delivery which left me paying €78.50 for a men’s cashmere jumper.

Zara has a neat selection of cashmere cardigans for men (in grey or black – pictured far left) and V-neck jumpers – all €99.99 each. Plus cashmere hoodies and cable knit sweaters and cardigans.

For Women

GAP also have a women’s cashmere range, including Breton striped jumpers,  slouchy v-necks jumpers and cashmere cardigans (priced from £89.95 – approx €110).

Zara have a limited selection of long V-neck jumpers in pastel colours and cashmere cardigans (€79.95) which are selling out fast and Marks & Spencer have 20% off their cashmere jumpers this week (a polo neck which was €109 is now €87.20).

Perhaps the best value for cashmere I’ve seen is at F&F at Tesco. At €52 for a V-neck jumper (which come in cream, pink, green, purple or orange), button-down cardigans (in red or black) or a grey and white Breton striped pure cashmere jumper; it’s a must-buy purchase for keeping warm this winter.
