Yes, I had a voucher worth £10.
Well i guess that at that price there has to be a down side! Will see what its like when it arrives on Monday.

neveradullmoment99 Sat 12-Nov-16 15:44:27

Its worth giving it a go. Will hand wash it on a cool wash.

I like the length of this and then pink colour. I'm tempted to try it but I'd probably size up if it shrinks.

Noticed this review from another thread today:

Of all unlikely places, last Christmas Florence and Fred at Tesco did a couple of cashmere jumpers for £35. I took a punt on a grey and a navy thinking they'd probably only last a month or two, no lie they are better than the Brora one I inherited from my Mum. They are still absolutely perfect (I have looked after them well) and don't show any signs of ageing yet.

So there you go!!!

I bought a black cashmere cardigan from F&F some years ago for £14 in the sale and it is the BEST cashmere ever. No bobbling at all, washes like a dream, still looks much better than cashmere that cost nearly 10 times more. Can't fault it.

Thanks, was tempted at full price, but snapped it up now!

Gah, I bought the grey roll neck earlier this week at full price.

I've bought their cashmere every year for the last 4 years and it's washed fine. No shrinkage, just use the wool cycle and spin.

Ooh I'm famous, that was my review!

I only ever wash my F&F cashmere and it comes up perfectly each time. No idea if they're even meant to be machine washable, I wouldn't dare.

Ooh I'm famous

Ha ha....yes. It was a very reassuring review thanks!

I got my F&F black cashmere jumper from the charity shop but it looked perfectly soft. I have had it two years and put it in the machine wash as wool ( own brand wool detergent).
Still perfect.

Have ordered two thanks OP!

I had a lovely blue F&F cashmere jumper, and it washed fine (on wool/delicate) but the moths got it........

TequilaBlockingBird Sun 13-Nov-16 11:25:11

neveradullmoment99 - you are a bad lady. I have bought one now.

Liiinoo Sun 13-Nov-16 12:28:45

I love Tesco cashmere. Wash at 30 on a delicates wash, no shrinkage at all. Way better than M&S.

dontcallmelen Sun 13-Nov-16 17:39:24

Never - second that you are bad lady 😀I have bought two.

AllTheShoes Sun 13-Nov-16 17:55:37

I've been looking for replacement jumpers, all mine have holes. Thanks! There's also sale on at Uniqlo on some of their merino and cashmere jumpers, though not as bargainous as these ones.

LizzieMacQueen Sun 13-Nov-16 18:09:57

I had no idea that that was what F & F stood for.

I thought Florence & Fred was some very upmarket place I'd not heard of.

FannyWincham Sun 13-Nov-16 19:54:14

How's the fit? I had a beloved cashmere v-neck with the perfect slouchy fit but the bastard moths got it. If this is boyfriendy then I may try it.

I have a fantastic black and grey striped F&F cashmere jumper that is into its third winter. It has never bobbled or shrunk (I wash it in the machine, with Woolite). Great quality for the price.

My F & F cashmere jumper went bobbly very quickly
They are very mean with the sizes too
I'll stick to M & S, Tkmaxx and Jaeger thanks

I have just picked up two v neck cashmere jumpers from F&F, seem lovely nice long welts on cuffs a good length come down to my hips, have a small split on the side seam, ordered size 8 roomy enough but not over baggy, so if you want really slouchy then I'd say size up.
I got the pink & grey both quite pale & pretty, so we shall see how they wash😃
