Everlane produces some of the best affordable cashmere sweaters on the market while being radically transparent about the materials and processes. The company will happily tell you that its sweaters are knit in Dongguan, China and will even show you the factory on its website. Everlane is more than willing to share that they use Grade-A cashmere from Inner Mongolia, and that the fibers it uses are the longest (35 millimeters) and finest (15 micron) fibers, so that the sweaters are durable, pill less, and get softer with wear.
The brand has now beefed up its range of sweaters with two winter-weight knits: a ribbed sweater and a heavyweight sweater. The Cashmere Rib Raglan sweater comes in three colors and features a chunkier ribbed knit appropriate for the cooler months. The Heavyweight Cashmere Crew sweater is available in seven colors and is knit with a 7-gauge cashmere yarn, so it’s 86 percent heavier than Everlane’s popular $100 Cashmere Crew sweater.
The sweaters retail for $140 and $145 which, given the quality and weight, is quite the steal. If you’ve been looking for a warmer and softer knit for the winter months, these should be at the top of your list.
