Knitwear is dropping into the 'new in' sections online as we type – struggling to know which styles to buy? It's all about investing in timeless, cosy cashmere knitwear to see you through the seasons.

We can't help but love it when cooler weather creeps in and the idea of snuggling up in cosy loungewear, or incorporating a chunky jumper into our outfits becomes a reality. Knitwear is bound to be part of everyone's autumn/winter capsule wardrobe, this is why it's worth shopping each year. Of course there are loads of styles to go for – from the button up cardigan to the roll neck – but it's the material we're most interested in.

How to care for delicate knitwear

Cashmere is the luxurious natural fabric made from goats specifically found in India. The super soft and dense material means clothing made from cashmere will be instantly warm, it won't stretch and it'll keep its shape for years to come. The way to ensure this is by hand washing the items – we've already created a guide on how to care for your cashmere items properly. Cashmere knitwear always comes with a slightly higher price tag, however, considering the longevity it will hold in your wardrobe, it's always worth the extra spend.

Sustainable cashmere pieces are always a great investment, along with key staple styles that won't date in colours which will stand the test of time.
