Even items which for most people are wardrobe staples – such as knitwear, can become tricky items to pick out.

Some people are allergic to wool and suffer irritation from the oily lanolin within it. However, some luxury fabrics such as cashmere are sensitive enough for even the most delicate skin types and can be worn by some individuals who suffer from eczema or psoriasis. This finely woven fabric has thinner yarns which makes it a good all-year-round choice for cover ups. The yarns themselves are made from the wool of the Cashmere goat, so it can be quite a shock to discover how soft the fabric made from the wool is.

Nothing feels quite like cashmere next to your skin and as a result cashmere items can cost a little more than your average ladies sweaters , cardigans or jumpers. If you are planning to purchase cashmere, it is worth bearing in mind however that the timeless nature and versatility of many items of cashmere clothing make them a true investment. As with other fabrics cashmere comes in varying degrees of quality, so to ensure you choose a piece that will stand the test of time – opt for an on trend colour in a classic style, such as a round neck cardigan and don't be afraid to spend a little extra with a specialist retailer.

Choosing cashmere clothing in earthy neutral shades, or classic navy or black will help you to get maximum wear out of your comfortable cardigans and sweaters, but there is a huge range of coloured cashmere available, so don't be afraid to experiment with the latest colours. If you are buying for the coming season, why not tap in to summer's big white trend by purchasing a failsafe white cardigan?
