Has anyone bought it? What's the quality like?

Thanks in advance!

It's ok- not brilliant. For every day is ok but if you wanted something dressy or special it is probably not up to it.

Just looking for every day warmth to be honest. I feel the cold very easily but chunky knits make my huge boobs even more gigantic looking!!

I've got a grey cashmere v neck from Uniqlo and it's been great - very cosy, washes well. It doesn't have that expensive, dressy look like proper cashmere, but great as a non-bulky layer of cosiness! I sized up and got a M as the S was a bit short and clingy (I'm 5'5" and size 8, not busty.)

I agree with other posters. I have four of the cashmere roll necks and they're great for every day. I'd also look at Cos. I have one of their cashmere jumpers from last year and it was about £10 more than the Uniqlo ones but is much more luxe. Their cashmere scarves are excellent. H&M have a cashmere range. I've not seen it so can't comment on quality but it's competitively priced.

Ooh I will have to have a look at Cos. Wondering if Gap will do cashmere as they had some lovely things last year.

Sainsburys sold cashmere last year for about £25, absolutely loved mine

I wasn't struck by the quality, but in terms of quality v ££, I think it's better than M&S and other mid-range cashmere.
