Take your cold weather wardrobe to the next level by investing in a great cashmere sweater! I have collected many over the years because they are so soft and cozy and easy to style. I always get asked where to buy cashmere sweaters and how to care for cashmere. Today, I’m answering these questions by sharing the best affordable cashmere sweaters for women in 2021 along with tips on how to care for and store cashmere.
Best Affordable Cashmere Sweaters and Brands
Shopping for cashmere sweaters can be difficult when you don’t know what to look for and have so many brands to choose from. There are different grades of cashmere but more expensive is not necessarily the best quality. Many retailers are purchasing and manufacturing in bulk and passing the cost savings on to the customer. If you are purchasing 2-ply or higher, it should last for years with good care.
Nordstrom is always my first stop of the year to look for this wardrobe basic. Their selection of cashmere sweaters, tunics and wraps is extensive. The price range is fabulous also with sweaters starting at just under $100!
This sweater has been a hit ever since the Nordstrom Sale and continues to be. I love cashmere for its lightweight warmth. It is a great layer for fluctuating temps. It comes in several other colors including black, burgundy, and gray.
This gorgeous gray cashmere turtleneck sweater is so incredibly soft and one that I wear on repeat. I love it so much that I bought it in two other colors! It also comes in a crewneck style and I picked up this classic camel color. These two colors are also staples in my wardrobe and can be styled a variety of ways.
I’ve seen a variety of friends and influencers share about the brand, Naadam. They are most well known for their sustainable Mongolian cashmere sets and $75 cashmere sweater. This sweater has over 50,000+ 5-star reviews and comes in a variety of colors.
If you’re looking for colorful cashmere sweaters like this one in the picture above, Lilly Pulitzer is the first place to check! Lilly Pulitzer’s cashmere will brighten your wardrobe and is perfect to wear and transition into Spring.
How To Care For Your Cashmere
Washing on gentle or professional cleaning (see your tag for recommendations) and storing clean cashmere in an air-tight container with moth balls in the off-season should keep your cashmere in good shape for many years.
All cashmere pills so that isn’t an indication of “good” cashmere. Pilling occurs when the tiny fibers twist around each other. You can combat this irritating phenomenon with a sweater comb or sweater stone. If a sweater feels fuzzy off the bat or too slick, they will pill in short order.
