We love Cashmere! You can't replace the softness, warm and cuddliness of cashmere. The problem is when you experience the joy of wearing well made, good quality cashmere, you will have difficulty living with less desirable fabrics. So, what makes Cashmere so special? There are a few reasons:
Cashmere comes from the soft undercoat of goats bred to produce the cashmere. Cashmere goats require special living conditions, which is why you can only find them in Inner Mongolia. Winters in Inner Mongolia are especially long and hard, so that the goats require a nice thick coat to protect themselves from the cold. It takes more than 2 goats to make wrap or a sweater. The fibers of the warming undercoat must be separated from a coarser protective top coat during the spring molting season, a labor-intensive process that typically involves combing and sorting the hair by hand.
Pure cashmere results in a material that is particularly elegant and the quality speaks for itself. It also is ideal for blending with other high-quality fibers. It can be blended with conventional sheep’s wool to make a yarn that is more affordable, or with merino wool or silk to create a truly unique and special yarn.
In addition, cashmere has extraordinary thermal qualities, retaining heat much longer than most other materials and for this reason it is perfect for luxurious winter fashion. But during the warmer months, you don’t have to give up the alluring comfort of cashmere, because it can also be processed into a delicate summer yarn.
So that cashmere wool can retain its pleasant feel and outstanding properties over time, it’s important to note a few things about the proper care and cleaning. It’s truly a luxurious product that can last you a lifetime if you take good care of it.
