Affordable cashmere is pretty much the holy grail of shopping. Once upon a time, the category would have been considered an oxymoron—impossible!—but the retail world has pushed forward into previously unchartered territory, and our wardrobes are thankful. It is now entirely feasible to find great, quality cashmere knits across the high street, and, unsurprisingly, once you’ve located the best of the best, you’ll discover that it doesn’t hang around for long.
For example, Boden's Crew Cashmere Cardigan, introduced in 2010 and reworked each season in new colours, is the brand’s best-selling cashmere style, with one sold every 20 minutes. That’s every 20 minutes, people! M&S is well-respected for its cashmere range (fashion types always buy from the men’s department and wear them big), and Uniqlo has established itself as the high-tech purveyor of the soft stuff at one of the most wallet-friendly prices around.
