Women's knits to know
#### Cashmere Softer than sheep's wool, cashmere is a fine yarn made from the hair of a goat. Able to adapt to changing temperatures; keeping you cool in the warmth and cosy in cooler conditions, it makes for a versatile knit worth investing in. Delicately spun and exquisitely soft, a cashmere jumper, cardigan or scarf will take pride of place in your wardrobe for years to come. When looking for cashmere, our experts recommend choosing a neutral shade. You want this piece to transcend time and trends, complementing your personal style in the years to come. The luxurious nature of this knit makes it a beautiful gift, perfect for the woman looking to add classic pieces to her capsule wardrobe, or the man who loves to lounge in the utmost of comfort.
#### Jumpers Where would your winter wardrobe be without a jumper? Well, cold that's for sure. From heavy knits to roll necks and statement sweatshirts, a jumper is a fundamental piece in every arsenal this winter. For those looking to add warmth and keep this classic, a muted high-neck jumper is the perfect choice for braving the cold. For those looking to take a risk, add a new dimension with the inclusion of embellishments, embroidery, patterns and texture.
#### Cardigans It's true to say there's no knit having a greater revival than the cardigan. No longer reserved for elderly grandparents, a knitted cardigan is the chicest way of staying cosy in-between temperatures. For those still not quite ready to say goodbye to their summer knitwear, introduce this added layer to your wardrobe with chunky, ribbed or lightweight options. When in doubt, we recommend opting for a mid-weight knit which can be easily layered with your favourite autumn coat, or on its' own when there's a slight chill in the air. Pay close attention to the foundations of your outfit to avoid clashing prints and colour palettes. Choosing a neutral shade will ensure your ensemble and knitwear will seamlessly tie together, acting as one carefully considered look; rather than a 'throw and go' layer.
#### Cosy Extras You've got the jumper, the cardigan and are enjoying the luxurious softness of cashmere; now for the accessories. From keeping you warm during a blustery walk to staying seasonal appropriate whilst dining with friends, these knitted accessories and hidden fashion gems are sure to hit the mark. Keep cold winds at bay with cashmere scarves - it's the chicest way of staying cosy this season. A knitted tweed blazer is perfect for the woman who has a meeting at 10am and a matinee at 8pm. Slightly cropped so your pussy bow blouse can peek through, it adds a layer of warmth in the most understated of ways.
