Autograph Pure Cashmere Dipped Hem Ribbed Jumper
Gorgeous and sumptuously soft
I love this sweater and although I am not 100% sure I will be keeping it until I have tried it on with several outfits, I thought I would review it anyway. It is boxy in style so no need to go up a size. I am a huge Brora cashmere fan but also buy M&S cashmere and can honestly say this jumper is value for money, so soft and with the ribbing more cosy than the flat 2ply knitwear. I have seen reviews where the articles have been machine washed and subsequently shrunk or thickened. I could never recommend machine washing cashmere - it hates the really cold water pulled into the machine and any added fabric conditioner is death to it! My cashmere has always been hand-washed in cashmere shampoo in body-temperature water, rinsed and in the final rinse I add a little hair conditioner. Any pilling (normal for cashmere) can be easily removed with a cashmere comb. If I keep my jumper I anticipate it looking good for many years to come because cashmere improves with age if handled gently. Enjoy!!

A sloppy Joe
I bought this with a 20 per cent off offer otherwise I probably won't have spent this much on such a casual styled jumper. The neckline is quite wide but as it's on the big side I can wear a polo neck underneath it. Haven't tried washing it yet but hope it doesn't shrink like my last navy cashmere M & S jumper did

I am not sure why everyone is so disappointed with this beautiful jumper. Quality of cashmere is as good as any I have bought and I usually buy from Pure Collection. I have washed it and it is just as lovely, so soft and so warm. I have not wanted to take it off since purchasing it and have considered buying another!

I bought this jumper last week and totally fell in love.
Great shape true to size (is ment to be relaxed over sized) and dip hem for extra coverage in leggings is simply genius.
After one wash following the instructions to a T, its bobbly, thicker and slightly smaller.... . I treated myself and now I feel I'm stuck with a top I don't like or want to wear. I don't ever review items but as this is a big spend at M&S i wanted to share.
