The words “cheap” and “cashmere” used to exist at opposite ends of the shopping spectrum, but as Uniqlo proves, you don’t need to pay a lot of money for a soft, fuzzy sweater anymore. That said, not all cheap cashmere is equal, either in terms of design or wear. So the Cut set out to find the best, most affordable cashmere that fit both our tastes and lifestyles. From Nordstrom to Everlane, here’s what we liked best.

Women Cashmere Striped Sweater

The blue, black, and cream stripes on this sweater from Uniqlo’s Inès de la Fressange collaboration are a fun riff on the traditional Breton-striped crewneck.
