I need to stock up on some cropped cashmere cardigans as my current batch have seen better days. Is Brora worth the extra expense?How is Pure cashmere rated as opposed to Boden? Are there any other companies who sell these cardigans? Thanks everyone.

Try M&S Autograph? Haven't seen their stock this year but last year was good.

Thanks! Will look into it. Do they wear well?

Brora cashmere is amazing and lasts for ever. I had an M&S one but it shrunk when I hand washed it. I stick my Brora stuff in the machine and it comes out beautifully. Have to buy it in the sales though!

I did manage to shrink one of my M&S jumpers but rest have lasted well.

I picked up some on eBay - end-of-season stock. So even cheaper still.

You get what you pay for, I suppose! I'd be petrified of buying a Brora item and shrinking it by mistake.

Boden cashmere washed okay, as far as I recall.
