I’m Vanessa, I am a cashmere addict.

Without revealing my age – suffice it to say that when I grew up clothes were tweedy and scratchy, trendy was a mini Shetland sweater. I can remember meeting my first cashmere on a relation, it was a white cardigan brand new and I was hooked. Slowly slowly I started buying cashmere, often on sale.

So soft like wearing a kiss. Comforting, luxurious and actually very practical. I wash my sweaters in the washing machine. I wear them winter and summer. Simple shapes not really classic but not trixy either.

Single ply colourful cardys often from JCrew. Double and triple ply chunky sweaters that are light as a feather and can be convincingly country. Sleeveless vest tops for under suits and I confess to a large collection of shawls and scarves.

Currently I am hooked on a sweater called Audrey from www.Winserlondon.com I have cream and navy and am going for grey and black. They also have a long cardigan/coat called Audrey too, that I have in Black but as you see from the photo Cream is pretty yummy. The Winserlondon scarves and shawls fit the current mood for almost sheer yarns and a more lofty weave too.

Cashmere is the best jumper a girl can have, the go-to, never-let-you-down, universal flatterer. So I say put your cash into cashmere.2014 sept blog
