When you hear the words 'cosy' and 'comfortable', what do you think? Another word beginning with 'c', of course: cashmere. When it comes to offering both comfort and warmth, cashmere is nothing short of a dream - and is just the thing for lifting our spirits in the dark evenings. From crew necks to socks, it remains a total luxury for winter and feels lovely to wear. But it's not just tops and accessories – cashmere joggers, dresses, polos and socks will satisfy your cashmere cravings. The only thing that isn't quite so delicious about cashmere? The price. Except we're here to tell you that affordable cashmere does actually exist.

The high street is brimming with excellent options, whatever you're looking for. Everyone's favourite M&S, for example, has cashmere jumpers in every colour, print and style imaginable. Arket's cashmere is also famously good quality - and the shop has everything from scarves and roll-neck jumpers to trousers and gloves.

Of course, you can't talk about affordable cashmere without talking about Uniqlo, which has everything from coats to beanie hats. If it's cashmere loungewear you're after, then look to The White Company, which has some of the snuggliest hoodie and joggers sets we've seen. Stay cosy.
