Pure Cashmere Crew Neck Plain Cardigan
Lovely deep colour
This was purchased for my mum. I love how deep and purply the colour is (it is navy, but with life in it). I scored this cardi a bit harshly because on first washing it turned very felted looking. It didn't shrink substantially, but the texture and denseness of the fabric changed. I haven't had that experience with other M&S cashmere. Still very useful and wearable. Slightly boxy style.

Cosy Classic Cardigan.
Bought this on a 20% off day so feel it was great value for money. Had tried previously to get a navy version but sadly had one of the "shedding" types mentioned by a previous reviewer - so did not keep it! Happily this one is lovely, soft and dense, a lovely deep blue and no obvious bobbling issues. Having done some "cashmere research", it seems that darker colours are slightly less soft - although this still seems lovely to me! Also bobbling, especially when new, is to be expected (even with much more expensive brands) but this can be controlled with careful washing and a cashmere comb - note - could M&S please offer one? All in all, I think this is an excellent product for the price and, lets face it, a big brand cashmere cardi could cost 10 times this price! Bought size 10 to allow for something underneath and found it a comfortable fit and good length in body and sleeves. Could stocks please be replenished in Ivory and Silver Grey???

Very disappointing purchase
Poor fit & quality.
Fortunate to have a few M&S cashmere cardigans acquired over several years either purchased or as gifts. This is by far the worst.
Neckline is low, bottom rib extremely tight & sleeves very long.
Cardigan is much thinner and not nearly as soft as previous seasons.
Even with the 20% discount it is poor value,so it has been returned.
Sadly the quality of M&S clothes just seems to get poorer every year.

Cashmere cardi - getting ready for winter
I bought a navy version of this at the end of 2012 and when I tried to buy another in black they had all gone. I lived in my navy one through the cold winter and bought this in readiness for next winter!
