When we polled 12 stylish women and men to help you find the best cashmere jumper, five of our experts mentioned Uniqlo, for the brand’s comfort-over-everything approach to cashmere ― including The Water Cure novelist Sophie McIntosh and Antony Gormley Studio coordinator Elena Davidson. Both love their 100 percent cashmere relaxed-fit crewneck jumper, with Elena rating it for price. “Uniqlo might not be particularly glamorous, but they do what they do well and I think it’s the best under £100 option for cashmere out there,” she says. “I still regularly wear a dusty-pink round-neck jumper I bought six years ago that I pair with my Acne scarf for lockdown walks, or with jeans to work ― it’s supersoft and long-lasting.” Several of our experts said Uniqlo is a good entry level to cashmere, which is why they’re the favorite of Sophie McIntosh: “[Uniqlo] were actually my first experience of cashmere, which I was slightly intimidated by! I have been pretty much living in one of their soft grey polo necks.”
All Uniqlo’s cashmere jumpers (from crews to v necks to polonecks) are on sale for 25 percent off in oodles of colours. We spotted options in sizes XS to XL, but you’ll have to click around to find the size and colour combination that you want (a small price to pay for a £20 saving).
