Or is it just the (relatively) cheaper ones? Have splurged on two cashmere jumpers in the gap sale and whilst they are lovely and toasty warm they are already bobbling badly under the arms esp where I carry my bag.
Is the usual? Or is it because its not top notch cashmere anyone?
I had one from Lands End, a few years ago. It bobbled dreadfully, and even working it over with a bobble remover didn't restore the texture. Then DH washed it at 60 degrees (I think to prove that he shouldn't have to do washing) and it came out dolly sized. All in all, I went off cashmere then.
I have some brora cashmere that i wear most days - they have never bobbled. They were expensive, even though i bought them all in the sale but for me definately worth it. I have a boden cashmere jumper whish has bobbled and is very thin (yiu can see a stripey top underneath) other than brora, i have been impressed with a marks & spencer cashmere cardi that has bobbled but only slightly.
I have a GAP cardigan that bobbles under the arms a lot - it is easy to de bobble though, just a bit of a pain. Brora doesn't bobble, but then my Florence and Fred Tesco tunic doesn't either - think cost is a factor, but not theonly one.
