Best affordable cashmere brands
The warm hug of cashmere was once the preserve of the moneyed classes but now it abounds on the high street. All is not created equal though, so read on for our guide to the best brands for indulging in a little affordable luxury.
Simple, unadorned styles will have the most longevity, not to mention being easier to layer, but you can add interest through bold colour, something the high street does particularly well.

Warning: without regular brushing, debobbling and gentle washing, even the most luxurious cashmere will start to look cheap. Read the Culture Whisper guide to cashmere care here.
