let's talk cashmere sweaters

Vancouver, WA(Zone 8a)

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.

Def worth waiting for after Christmas sales.

I've never bought cashmere from here but LL Bean is a great company and nothing but good reviews

I have purchased a few items from LL Bean and their customer service is A+!! Thanks for the link; that is the 1st place I checked.

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.

Yep, there are synthetic blends that are super soft and washable. Very practical for my lifestyle.

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.
