4. THE WHITE COMPANY
I always think of The White Company as super expensive, but for cashmere this quality it really is well priced. I could hibernate in this waffle knit one forever…

And how to look after cashmere? A cashmere comb is a must…and where I can I try and hand-wash. But lack of both time and energy leads me to use the I Hate Ironing app occasionally. It’s not cheap (£8 per cashmere item) but they pick it up and drop it off back at a time convenient to you (which you select on the app). It’s one of the few (indulgent) apps I use!One to Watch: Wyse London
You’ve most probably seen Wyse London’s rainbow stripe jumpers on Instagram: the perfect mix of luxury with a cool but fun edge, Wyse cashmere is one to invest in. I have the tracksuit bottoms and they’re my saviour on long haul flights.
I also want to tell you about an amazing new cashmere brand run by a long-time reader/supporter and now friend through this crazy blogging world: Lois Avery.
|Lois Avery – inspired by Italy|
Jennie from Lois Avery recently quit her job as a Lawyer to pursue her dreams and is now her own GirlBoss designing and producing quality cashmere shawls and scarves, inspired by her travels and love affair with Italy. The quality really is the best and the packaging is spot on. You can follow her fab page on Instagram here, as well for a spot of wanderlust and gelato.
