If there is one thing we've nailed in the Nordics, it's soft sweaters. As a wardrobe staple for most of the year, we've garnered significant material know-how to find the best knit for any occasion.

This time of year, cashmere makes the cut as the comfy knits gently lull us back into our rigorous routines while keeping us warm. As we lament the everlasting cold on dark winter mornings in Scandinavia, we swathe ourselves in multiple layers of knits. Unsurprising then that the region has an array of local brands with a singular focus on the soft fibre.

Whether blended or 100 per cent – Below, we've gathered the softest cashmere knits from Nordic brands to buy now.

An affordable classic, this marine sweater from H&M has us doubting wether black should be our basic colour of choice. The perfect match to our chocolate brown clothing, from leather trousers to mini skirts, we're keen to incorporate this cashmere knit in our daily rota.
