It’s cashmere season! While the super soft wool can be outrageously expensive, with some items going for hundreds of collars, we’ve got some amazing finds that are super soft, high quality, and won’t break the bank. Cashmere is a type of wool that comes from goats that are specially bred for their soft undercoat. The term “cashmere” is the anglicization of the word “Kashmir,” which is the northernmost region of India, where the prized fabric has been made for thousands of years. The material comes from Cashmere goats and Pashmina goats and is typically produced in Central Asia, however parts of Europe and America have since developed their own cashmere industries.
Cashmere is known for its lightweight and breathable quality, while also remaining incredibly warm and soft. It’s also very durable and holds its shape over time. These qualities, along with the complicated production methods make the material very expensive and typically sold in most high-end luxury stores. However, over the years, companies like NAKEDCASHMERE have found ways to bring the fabric to the masses. NAKEDCASHMERE has removed the traditional step of purchasing at a retail store, which allows them to sell to you for less than half the price you have been used to paying for luxury cashmere.
There are several different types of cashmere you should be on the lookout for before you purchase! The thinner the cashmere, the finer the construction, and the higher quality the final sweater or cardigan product. So, Grade C cashmere is the lowest quality, measuring around 30 microns width per cashmere hair, and Grade A is the finest, going as low as 14 microns width per hair.
