Soft Goat - Cashmere

Alexis and I have both been stomach sick for four days now (!!!) and I'm exhausted from taking care of him and me at the same time, especially when being pregnant on top of it all.
But this DHL delivery in the morning really boosted my mood. The cashmere order from Soft Goat arrived with new, lovely and very stylish sweaters for me, Alexis and the new little baby to come. The whole family has been wearing clothing from Soft Goat for more than a year and a half now, and as a stay at home mother for the time being, these cashmere sweaters are simply perfect because I can be comfy at home but still hit the streets and just put on a pair of skinny jeans and a statement necklace and I'm all set.
The quality is excellent and I've been washing them many times and still they keep the fabric softness and structure. They will unfortunately stop making the baby sweaters, which I'm so sad to hear, so hurry up and get one if they are still available in your baby's size. Otherwise, make sure to get one for yourself; there's nothing like the purity of a nice cashmere garment on your or your child's skin. Click HERE and you will be redirected to their homepage... and they deliver all around the world!

I got this white one, this black one and this orange one for me - I have these model's since before and they also work when being pregnant. I took size M in them because the whole point is to have them a little bit over size.

    1. They are indeed normal in size. For the black and white sweater, I always chose that model one size bigger then I normally am, just because I like that look on a sweater like it.

      So I've had these in size Medium.

  3. Vilka fina! Kan du inte länka till respektive tröja alt skriva ut färg och modell? :) hur passar de gravida? Blir de korta i magen eller funkar det? Vilken modell och färg är din favorit? Hur många strl ska man gå upp om man normalt sett är en medium?

    1. Therese,

      Done! I've linked to the models I got.
      The model I got the black and white in, is perfect for a pregnant belly. I will show pictures later of course on how I style them and how they look with my belly. They are not short around the belly, that's why this model is terrific! I went up one size so maybe you should try a Large then? You can always change the size if it doesn't fit!

  4. One of the posts I keep coming back to is when you tell about the "perfect wardrobe" of only a few items that you kept during the time you were moving between Stockholm and Zürich, and how you combined these for stay at home, out on the town and party. (Do you know which one?) It has inspired my wardrobe! BUT I think that "the perfect wardrobe" missed one thing, a cashmere sweater! They look so great, but a little too pricy for me to by for myself and my 2 year, but nevertheless, the perfect sweater!

    1. Katti,

      Thank you! I know exactly which one. Why I didn't put a cashmere sweater in there was probably simply because it was still late summer temperatures!

  5. I received my black poncho from softgoat last week and I love it! Wore it to work today and got many nice comments. I think quality compared to price is very good.

  8. Det känns alltid så tryggt när du rekommenderar något, då vet man att det är bra kvalitet och något som kommer vara en kärt år efter år.

  9. Gorgeous! And lovely colors! I would have wanted the orange one myself. Although I agree with Katti, at the moment a little bit too expensive for my wallet too.. I remember we got a rebate from you last year, unfortunately it does not work anymore.. Hugs

    1. No, you can wash them in a washing bag on 30 degrees, wool program, but without softener.

  11. Tack snälla Stina! Funkar den modellen som du har i orange också för gravida? Skulle du rekommendera att gå upp en strl även där? Jag är gravid och väntar min första i mitten av augusti, tror vi är ganska lika långt gångna :)

  14. Hello, jag är 163 cm och 56 kg tror du på en S eller M i over size tröjan respektive den kabelstickade varianten?
