Cashmere scarf and wool scarf
Warmer and softer
100% cashmere scarf is around 8 times warmer than a 100% wool scarf. The cashmere fiber is hollow and finer makes it lighter and softer than wool.
100% cashmere scarf is light but drapes well. It is more luxurious with an elegant feeling and hence more preferred for the formal events because of it silky feel. And a wool scarf is thick, heavy and sometimes itchy.
The durability of both wool and cashmere scarves heavily depends on the quality. Generally, wool scarf is sturdier than a cashmere scarf when it comes to stretch and washing. However, high-quality cashmere scarf with some extra care could last for 20 years.
