Cashmere Crew Neck from Woolovers | 20% OFF | Style

I'm a relatively recent convert to the cashmere club - I used to think they couldn't be worth the money. Yes, lovely and soft but so light! How on earth could they keep you as warm as people say?
Then I went to work in Field Day back in 2016, one of the coldest offices I've ever worked in! It's a warehouse and is difficult to heat and I noticed that Alix the owner wore cashmere every day so I thought I'd give it a try. My first purchase was a black cashmere crew neck and I've never looked back. Talk about a revelation! I think it remains my most worn jumper and the price per wear must surely be in half-pennies by now.

Since then I've bought a couple of others from different places but never one from Woolovers, a brand I've bought merino knits from in the past as the prices are amazing and the range impressive but I didn't know they sell fabulous cashmere that's really well priced....plus they've given me a 20% off discount code for all of you!

I selected the Woolovers Pure Cashmere Crew Neck, available in 8 colours but before I show you it, I want to shout out Woolovers for their packaging. The jumper came in a compostable sleeve, packed in a reusable paper envelope. I'm so impressed by this and it serves as a strong reminder how many companies aren't taking plastic pollution seriously. Woolovers are a large online business that is embracing biodegradable packaging entirely. Not just using cardboard or paper on their outer packing but thinking of how to replace plastic sleeves for their inner packaging. I hope others take note!
Ok - to the knit now and this is the Grey Marl and I ordered the size S. I've always found Woolovers knits to come up on the large side so size down if you want a neat fit, as I do.
It's such a classic colour and one I know I'll wear lots. If you've never bought cashmere before and you're investing for the first time, I'd recommend a black, camel or grey as these are the colours that you'll wear most and you'll keep forever. 
This shade of grey will work with camel, black and navy as well as denim and other shades of grey (of which I have rather a lot!) I have styled it 2 different ways for this blog post to show you what I mean - starting with this midi skirt. A cashmere knit is a lovely way to extend the wear of your lighter midi skirts.

Trainers - Fitflop (gifted SS19)

Then for a different look, I teamed the knit with a blazer and some distressed jeans. I love camel and grey worn together, it just looks so European and stylish!

Bag - Abro (preloved)
Jeans - H&M (past season)
Loafers - Dune (past season)
There are tons of other options - I'm just not ready to dig out the winter bags yet but I know it's going to look great with my camel and my checked winter coats too. Oh and my faux fur coat! In fact, this addition to my AW19 wardrobe has got me properly excited for cooler days. You've got to have something to help you get through the winter don't you?

There are a few other styles in the Woolovers cashmere collection in case a crew neck isn't your style. This boat neck cashmere knit has more of an oversized fit to it:
And there's a roll neck too for the really cold days:
If you're not quite ready to invest in pure cashmere, I can highly recommend the Woolovers Cashmere/Merino mix knits, many of which are on offer at 2 for £89.

Thanks to Woolovers for the opportunity to work with them this season. I wasn't paid to write this blog post but I was gifted the jumper and my links are affiliate links to allow Woolovers to track the traffic from my blog post.

Thanks for supporting the brands that support this blog,

Ax

  1. Thanks Averil, I've just ordered the cashmere and merino dressing gown from Woolovers, always nice to get a discount so appreciate that! I couldn't get through the winter without a few cashmere pieces, it can turn into quite an eexpensive habit 😉, but if you look after them they last so well and you get so much wear out of them. Paul Costelloe does some lovely cashmere pieces for Dunnes and the quality is incredible - don't know if you have Dunnes up your way but if not, worth a look when you're on the road. I seem to remember you saying you get to Limerick now and again, not sure where you'd get it there, not all branches do it, but the Ennis Dunnes is one of the best in the country & only up the road. Enjoy your new sweater & looking forward to seeing you style it in many ways! Anne x
