In a word – yes!
Once you have worn cashmere you will fully appreciate the worth of cashmere. Cashmere is extraordinarily soft and warm, yet is also durable, breathable, and lightweight. As cashmere is a natural fibre our cashmere accessories maintain their shape over the years you will have them. If you correctly care for your cashmere accessories they will last for many years. This makes cashmere a sound investment for your wardrobe.
Wearing cashmere will make you feel like a million dollars, but it is the manufacture of the initial cashmere fibre that is particularly time consuming and expensive to produce that makes cashmere expensive.
Cashmere is sourced from a specific breed of goat – the Kashmir goat – found in difficult to reach regions of Mongolia. These Kashmir goats have a double layer coat. An outer “guard” layer that is coarse which protects the soft undercoat layer which is used to make cashmere fibres. The process of de-hairing is a laborious process where the two coats are combed and separated by hand. From this process approximately 100 to 150 grams of cashmere fibres are produced from each goat. It is therefore a process that takes a lot of time and expertise to produce only a small quantity of cashmere.
Once the cashmere fibres are collected from the goats, they are spun and coloured into the yarn used to make your favourite cashmere items.
Our cashmere accessories are an accessible way to live in luxury every single day.
