Shop Consciously with “Nearly New Cashmere”.

What a great concept to buy Cashmere garments second hand (which are usually so expensive) without buying brand new – at a fraction of the price.

Wearing my “Nearly New” Cashmere Jumper.

This company as well as others on Etsy and eBay offer a varied collection of luxury, second hand, 100% cashmere.  The stock comprises sweaters, cardigans, scarves and gloves for both men and women.  I discovered that each item is consciously laundered and treated until it’s in perfect condition.

Some “Nearly New”  Cashmere ideas for you.

There is a luxurious softness to cashmere, as it should be.  Here I am wearing a beautiful, navy blue, v-necked, “Ralph Lauren” sweater. This would have cost goodness knows what if I had bought it brand new. The condition is pristine and such a quality product that will enhance any outfit.

Over the years, I have acquired a small collection of cashmere sweaters, cardigans and scarves. If looked after, they can last a long time. When I peeked at the price tag, I was extremely surprised by the price. £42.00 – Wow!!!The trick to finding the perfect sweater is nailing the texture. Whether you’re looking for one to wear to the office, or something comfortable and oversized to mooch around in a casual setting, it’s the perfect smart, casual garment. If you have sensitive skin, it may be an idea to wear a light fitting cotton tee underneath – handy to peel off when it gets a tad warm, too.

When I was doing my research for this piece, I came across a handy tool – one which I didn’t know existed. A handheld product called a ‘de-bobbler’ or ‘bobble shaver’. This will breathe new life into your worn-out favourite, precious jumpers and tops. It’s a small rotating blade inside a plastic case that works wonders. I have read the glowing reviews, so I’ve ordered this one from Amazon. From reading the instructions, it looks easy to use – you simply run it over the item of clothing, safely removing the bobbles, loose threads and lint, leaving woollens looking brand new, again.

In this pic I’m wearing my “very old” red Cashmere jumper.

In terms of sustainability and shopping consciously, it makes sense to acquire clothes that are already in the market. We can still get that pleasure rush from buying from a second-hand brand or an ethically produced fashion label, where care has been taken to do minimal harm to the environment.

I’m beginning to not look at fashion with blinkers on anymore. I’m now asking more questions about where the garment has been made, and how. Most brands are transparent with their information on their websites, detailing their sustainability policies. There is a huge rise in sustainable brands.

A bonus to the sustainable movement is that buying second hand and ‘preloved’ clothing is now accepted, and something to be proud of. Whereas, only a few years ago, people didn’t voluntarily admit to it.

    • It’s a great way to buy cashmere at a fraction of the price. I was

      a peep for Christmas presents.

    Tina xx

    • Thank you, Tina. It is a great concept and the quality is virtually brand
      new. Have a great week!

  9. This is such an amazing concept for a second hand sustainable shop….to be focused on just cashmere. And there is a lot to love about a quality cashmere sweater. Your choice is gorgeous and I love the shade of purple paired with those gorgeous wide legged corduroy trousers! So beautiful. I recently bought myself a de-piller or de-bobbler and it really does breathe new life into pilly sweaters. I have my favorite pair of cashmere fingerless writing gloves that I wear all winter long while typing because my hands are always like ice…they naturally became very pilly and I shaved them down and they are nearly like new again! Thanks for sharing this brilliant company and linking up with me.


    • I agree Shelbee – it’s such a great idea and great prices when you compare
      to them to brand new cashmere. I can confirm there’s no difference. I have
      just received my de-pillar so yet to try it.

    What a great idea for a store and a lovely knit you got! 🙂 I have one of those de-bobbler tools, I find it doesn’t always work that well depending on the material – but it does freshen up a piece with a lot of pilling!

    Hope that you had a great weekend! We had our annual family photo with Santa for our Christmas cards on Saturday and then a play date in the park on Sunday 🙂

    • I agree Mica, it’s such a great idea to sell 2nd hand cashmere. I have just received
      my de-bobbler tool – I’ll be trying it out on a few sweaters – hope it’s effective. Your
      annual Christmas photograph sounds a lot of fun. Enjoy.

    • It would be worth a day out in Yorkshire if you don’t live too far away. There
      was some great stock. I really was spoilt for choice. xx

  14. What an awesome business model! I love that these sweaters are pre-loved and being given new life. It’s a win for the business owner, the consumer, and our planet. And the navy cashmere looks beautiful on you!

      Kind regards xx

    Five years ago I bought four items.and they are still very wearable.I have since bought more items over the years.Personaly I handwash mine in baby shampoo and then rinse in cold rain water.This way of cleaning the garment makes it super soft and springy.i

  16. How interesting Alison, you’ve shared some amazing pieces. Jacqui x

    • It’s a great way to buy a cashmere sweater at a reduced price. The one I have is virtually brand new.x

    • There are some great shops on Etsy that sell reconditioned woollens, definitely a great alternative, to the hefty price
      of a new cashmere sweater. Have a lovely week. xx

  18. I love this idea! I will check out the Nearly New shop as I do alot of shopping on Poshmark for secondhand items. The price can’t be beat here! I love the red with the silky skirt, looks so beautiful and perfect for the Holidays too!
