– It is warm, despite being more lightweight than, let’s say, merino wool.
– It is considered more stylish by some
– The properties of the fabric depend on the humidity of the air, meaning it’s suitable for lots of different climates, even warmer ones.
There is only one problem with cashmere, and we write about that is our previous article. That’s the price, which can sometimes be tenfold that of merino wool. But considering that in order to procure cashmere wool, the goats are not sheared but combed carefully, and only a small amount of material can be procured from a single goat, the price is accurately set.
Moreover, for the amazing qualities it has over regular wool, this price is definitely worth it. In the world of fashion, sometimes it is common to pay more for things that are popular, despite not being more functional and practical. That is certainly not the case with cashmere, since it has several important qualities that regular wool just simply doesn’t.
So in conclusion, the best answer we could give to someone asking “Is cashmere worth it?” is definitely “Yes”. Sure, you’ll be paying a lot more, but you’ll get value for your money – a softer, warmer and more delicate material several times better than regular sheep wool. If you have the money for it, be sure to try cashmere this winter.
