Cozy, lived-in cashmere sweaters are the one closet essential I turn to once it's officially apple-picking season. Not only is cashmere the king of quality fabrics, but the mere sight of a great cashmere pullover is enough to invoke that feel-good (yet hard-to-pronounce) hygge sensation we all strive for come autumn. A comfortable cashmere sweater served with a side of a good book and a heaping mug of mulled wine? Yes, please.

Unfortunately, shopping quality cashmere essentials at an affordable price point is about as easy as correctly pronouncing hygge on the first try. Long-lasting (and more importantly, non-scratchy) fall sweaters often come at a steep price, which is exactly why I'm willing to shell out a little extra cash for a comfortable sweater that'll see me through multiple seasons. If you're in the market for an ultra-soft pullover to add to your winter wardrobe, look no further than these affordable cashmere sweaters under $150 that won't set you back.
