What a fantastic range of Cashmilon jumpers there are in M & S. How soft they are too.

But what's Cashmilon? Sounds like very affordable cashmere to me - with perhaps a little something to make it cheaper and more easy-care.

100% acryllic that's what it is. I feel slightly mislead.

Faith's Avatar Yeah will probably make M and S cash-millions of it!

Toady's Avatar They are lovely and soft but ladies of a certain age, or it might just be me, find them very cloying and sweaty as opposed to comfy and cosy.

ChrisH's Avatar Ooh, I'd better tell Mil about them! Oh drat, I told myself I wasn't going to mean about her anymore. Back to the naughty corner.

These make me electric. I shocked the cat last week trying to give her a stroke - she avoids me now! Laughing

They also wrinkle badly.

KittyB's Avatar No no no, they will bobble. And go shiny. Don't go there - real cashmere only 35 in Tesco, they do cheaper ones too sometimes, and 25 in Asda. A bit thin, not the highest quality cashmere, but still cosier than lambswool.

Frances's Avatar Oh my, over here garments have a required tag that reveals the actual fibre content, percentages and all if it is a blend. And also the recommended care method.

Do you all have the same sort of tag? Ours are sewn into the left seam for tops or dresses or skirts, and in the left leg seam for ... pants (or trousers, as I know you prefer to call them.)

Westerwitch's Avatar Eeeeeek I suffer from static and hate bobbling so will now avoid - thank you . . . chainsaws are not good at bobble off you know.
