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 uncharted territory, and our wardrobes are thankful. It is now entirely feasible to find great, quality cashmere knits across the high street, and we believe they're one of the high-street pieces that truly deserve a place in your forever wardrobe.
Of course, all great pieces sell out—fast. For example, Arket's bold-hued crew-neck has been reissued season after season since its conception. Marks and Spencer is also well respected for its cashmere range (fashion types always buy from the men's department and wear them big), and Uniqlo has, too, established itself as the high-tech purveyor of the soft stuff at some of the wallet-friendliest prices around.
