I have been planning on buying my husband a cashmere sweater for Christmas. However, after the research I think I will wait until after Christmas for a discount. There are such sweaters online from $60 - $1000. I will stick to a general price range $100 ish. And a cashmere blend would be fine. However, the blends I have seen are only 15% cashmere. Why not a 50-50? Any of you have a tried and true brand you recommend? I read an article and a good quality one should last a long long time, per this particular article. I love to pro-rate my quality investments.
I have purchased cashmere sweaters from Macy's and from Kohl's and they have lasted real well. I buy them on sale and at both stores they cost about $40. There are many blends now - or even ones that do not actdually have any cashmere in it and they are soooo soft. The bonus there is that the blends are washable.
i wash my cashmere AND throw them in the dryer on slightly warm air. of course, i buy mine a little large to begin with and the first wash shrinks them to a perfect fit. they never get that "tight" woven feeling like shrunken wool gets.
