Reader Review: Quince Cashmere vs Jenni Kayne Cashmere

Hi all! Blog reader Robyn was kind enough to update me on her recent sweater purchases and review them for us. She bought the Jenni Kayne Cashmere Fisherman Sweater and the Quince Mongolian Cashmere Fisherman sweater that's supposed to be a very good dupe. Here's what she has to say:

Ok so I got both sweaters and I’ll get right to the punchline: the Jenni Kayne is far superior, DAMMIT. It’s lofty and exquisitely soft and the color is rich and beautiful:


Here's a closeup shot of the knit:


The Quince sweater *looks* identical in terms of knit and cut, but it’s thinner, a bit itchy (though I have super sensitive skin so YMMV), and just looks cheaper in general. I got the cream color and I could see my bra through it:


And a closeup shot of the knit:


Still, if you’re on a budget it’s not a bad choice, particularly, I’d suspect, in the darker colors. I got a small in both brands and the Quince was maybe a smidge bigger, but just a smidge.

I also ordered the baby alpaca cardigan from Quince and it is DELICIOUS. So soft, not itchy. Recommend 💯 

Thanks, Robyn! She's got a great recipe blog for high altitude cooks and you can also find her on Instagram @butterandair and @robyn_nicoli

Just FYI, I also ordered the Quince cashmere fisherman sweater and I'll be posting an outfit tomorrow with my thoughts! If you've never shopped Quince before and want $20 off your first purchase, please use my link (full disclosure: for each purchase I get credits to spend.)

  1. I hate to say it because it’s so pricey but I have the Jenni Kayne cocoon cardigans in cashmere and alpaca and the cheetah mules and they are all totally worth it. I’ve been buying one piece a year for my birthday.

  2. Yes I’d agree. The Jenni Kayne are worth it.
