Sumptuously soft and incredibly chic - cashmere garments are such a treat an investment, quality cashmere is sure to last year after year – keeping its shape better than other woolen jumpers….it can also be cashmere can be up to eight times warmer than sheep’s wool despite its light weight.
Why is cashmere such a luxury?
As with most luxury items it’s the quality, costly production & scarcity that make cashmere such a luxury. Created from the soft undercoat of goats bred to produce the wool. Taking two or more goats to make one two-ply jumper.
Darcey’s advice when choosing cashmere:
- Cashmere should bounce back from your touch – not wrinkle or pill
- Quality cashmere should conform to your figure
- Find a 2 ply cashmere, the best way to test this is to put your hand under the cashmere – if you can see you hand clearly through it, it’s likely to be 1 ply
- You want a timeless garment so take your time and try on different styles and colour variations
