Cashmere is one of the most precious materials around, prized for its unique softness and comfort. It is a type of wool, but cashmere comes from only the finest fibres, selected from specific areas of the fleece of the cashmere goat. These extra-fine, down-like hairs are what gives the material its silky texture, but they are hard to source, making the fabric rare and highly sought-after.
Cashmere is often found in sweaters and knitwear offering a luxuriously soft feel against the skin while providing an insulating layer in cold weather. It can also be woven into fabric for use in suits and coats, where its fine fibres add a refined sheen and a remarkably smooth finish. Cashmere is often blended with wool or other fibres adding to its strength and longevity without compromising the feel.
