I've had a bit of a moth problem .... Pretty comical state for some of my jumpers in a you have to laugh kind of way ( else you'd cry)

I actually need a navy and a grey round neck jumper, which do those of you who have an opinion think is better, Uniqlo or pure collection? I can't justify Brora ....

Uniqlo styling is ok though a bit 'dated' and ordinary- I have a couple of their jumpers for everyday wear.

Pure is nicer and a better choice of styles but more £££.

I didn't like the cashmere from Pure it wrinkled badly, so I couldn't wear the cardigan again without ironing it - the sleeves were on the short side too. Now on my 7th cashmere from Uniqlo, I wear them every day - machine wash regularly and I'm really happy with them. If you prefer a looser fit try the men's dept too.

Uniqlo - this style is great and not at all dated

I have always found Pure to be a bit prickly

I have two jumpers from Pure and love both.

I haven't bought much from Pure but it's always been good quality - as it should be as it's more ££.

I've found Uniqlo very unpredictable e.g I bought two cashmere jumpers from them a couple of years ago - one is still in good condition but the other has turned to fuzzy felt.

I had a look at the cotton cashmere in Uniqlo.
The cableknit was really rough, the fine knit was nice (smooth) and there was a weird textured one that looked like a dishcloth!

Cashmere was nice but so thin.
