I have wanted a lightweight knit poncho/cape/wrap in a lovely flattering greay shade for ages but everything's too expensive and I suspect high maintenance. I love this one for example: www.willowcashmere.com/cashmere-ponchos/superfine-cashmere-poncho.html
Has anyone seen any such thing that would suit someone short, isn't quite as expensive, has a high neck? Thanks!

I have an M&S one that meets your criteria although it isn't all natural fibre unfortunately.

Try monsoon. I bought one from them about 10 years ago, in black, and used it a lot.
To be honest, I would pay the £129 they sell it for, OP, if you need it now, it's one of my most used pieces in my wardrobe. What I normally do though is keep on eye on the website and buy it on sale, whilst squirrelling away in my 'mummy is going to spoil herself this time' little tin that's hidden in my room.

Oh, I forgot, they are relatively easy to maintain, I wash mine with silk and wool liquid detergent on a delicate. Dry it folded on a towel. I keep it rolled in sheets of tissue paper, not hanged.

Mirai, the ones you've linked to are very nice but they're too wintery and chunky. I want something I could wear now. The first link from Jigsaw doesn't work for me unfortunately.

Dilidali, the one you're talking about from Monsoon, is it something you could wear now?

Do you have a link Cece?

Dilidali Sun 26-May-13 11:50:19

Yes, it is. I doubt it's still for sale, as I said, it is rather old now.

I think so too, but I'll stick to grey as it goes with everything
Now back to looking for that discount code....

Fiveisenough Sun 26-May-13 19:08:45

I love the jigsaw one too let me know if you find a discount code. Best I have found is cash back through quidco.

EarlyInTheMorning Sun 26-May-13 19:44:04

Yes me too sad

No link but it was a couple of years ago and they often churn out the same old basics. It's almost identical to the grey jigsaw one but was only about £20-25.
