Discover the Benefits of Cashmere
You know the old saying, ‘you get what you pay for’? This couldn’t be more apt when it comes to the benefits of cashmere!
Cashmere is known for being a luxury item of knitwear in any wardrobe, but what exactly makes cashmere so luxurious and desirable? Here are some of the wonderful benefits of cashmere:
1. Unrivalled softness.
Cashmere is one of the softest natural fibres you will find. Cashmere comes from the undercoat of goats, who grow a luxuriously thick and soft fur as a result of living in areas of the world that drop to temperatures well below freezing. Our cashmere comes from Inner Mongolia, an area of the world known for producing the softest cashmere.
2. Long-lasting style.
Look after your cashmere and your cashmere will look after you for a lifetime to come! Quality cashmere is an investment into your long-term wardrobe, outliving many other materials when handled with the proper care. The quality of cashmere varies between brands and manufacturers, but we use the finest quality Mongolian cashmere to ensure our customers are able to feel and look their best for years to come - we’re so confident, in fact, that we offer a 365-day quality guarantee!

3. Greater insulation.
The great British weather is no match for the fabulous insulating properties of cashmere! It comes as no surprise that this natural fibre is great at keeping you warm, seeing as though it acts as a layer to keep the goats warm during harsh winters.
4. Very breathable.
What’s even more impressive when it comes to the benefits of cashmere, is that the extra insulation is unlikely to cause you to overheat. In addition to being wonderfully warm, cashmere remains a breathable layer to keep you comfortable throughout the seasons. In fact, lighter cashmere layers act as a great item of spring/summer knitwear!
5. Endless comfort.
You needn’t worry about itchiness when it comes to quality cashmere. The soft nature of this natural fibre, alongside its breathability, allows your cashmere knit to keep you comfortable throughout wear.
6. Sustainable style.
Cashmere wool is both a sustainable and renewable fibre, with the wool gently combed from the goats during the time of year that the animals naturally start to shed their coat. The wool then naturally begins to grow back as the temperatures drop and the cycle continues!
We have also built up a supply chain that prioritises sustainability as much as us, from the caring of goats and treatment of the nomadic herdsmen in Inner Mongolia, to the sustainable factory we have carefully selected in China. Our cashmere is accredited by a renowned standard that promotes sustainable practices in the cashmere industry, which allows us to offer real guilt-free luxury to our customers.
