I about to invest in 2 ready for the spring /summer and would love to have some recommendations before I fork out.
I'd like light grey and off white/cream. I did order the M&S one which was lovely but the grey was too dark. There's was £75.
Are there better options maybe?

Have you tried Woolovers? They have dozens of styles in a rainbow of colours. Good value for money as well. Here

I really rate the Boden cropped cashmere ones. Usually you can find a 10/15/20% code knocking around so never pay full price. You can often get free delivery & returns too. I have 4 and they wash really well. My black one is the oldest at 4 years and still looks like new!

I have a couple of cropped length ones from both Boden and Pure Collection; they must be at least 5 years old and they're still going strong. Mind you, I've seen posts that say the quality isn't as good now.

I like John Lewis too but the cardis are always too long for me. I've tried supermarket cashmere and I wouldn't do it again. I'd love a Brora one but, even in the sales, they're out of my league.

thanks guys. I like the look of the Boden ones - just need to find a discount code then i'll try one.

Floisme, Brora have a warehouse clearance sale on until tonight!

I really rate the pure collection ones, as good as Brora I would say. I don't think the quality has gone down at all.

mckenzie, thanks for the tip - I'll go and take a look!

Not sure what criteria people apply when they gauge quality of cashmere but I find my pure cardigan creases easily and looks grubby by the end of the day, whereas the cashmere I bought from uniqlo looks as good at the end of the day as it did at the start. I use it as a lounging house cardigan now. I wouldn't buy another.

Thanks for the extra posts. I'm spoilt for choice now!
