As soon as J.Crew’s Creative Director Olympia Gayot posted about an extra-special new cashmere sweater on her Instagram Story earlier this fall and an entire J.Crew campaign featuring members of the New York City Ballet wearing said sweater, it’s a given that a swift sellout soon followed. The sweater in question is J.Crew’s Brushed Cashmere Sweater.
J.Crew’s design team spent a year developing the special fabric, which is made of long cashmere fibers that are specially washed to give them a light and fluffy finish. The result is the softest, fluffiest cashmere sweater you’ve ever seen. It was originally released in oversize V-neck and polo versions (which there are currently a few sizes left in). People went crazy for the V-neck sweater and it flew out of stock in every color. But lo and behold, I just noticed that J.Crew has restocked it in a crewneck version, in three perfect colors (oh, and there’s a hat too). I’m sure that as soon as shoppers catch wind of this it too will sell out but in the meantime, keep scrolling to add your favorite to your cart.
