We escaped the cold for a long time this winter, but now that it’s finally here, it’s time to start dressing for it like a proper Canadian. For most people, that means big, down coats, mittens, hats, scarves and waterproof boots. That takes care of the outer layer, but what about what’s underneath? Cashmere provides unparalleled warmth and softness. The luxurious material is experiencing a resurgence, partly because of how cozy it is, but also because of its quality compared to other sweater-making materials. So if you think cashmere sweaters are the stuff of a grandma’s wardrobe, check out these ones, and think again.

This poncho-style sweater is arguably one of the most unique cashmere pieces I’ve seen, and it’s a more tailored take on a chunky turtleneck.
