Why choose cashmere

Cashmere is a fabric crafted from an undercoat of silky hair from goats living mainly in Mongolia and the heights of Ladakh and Tibet. The undercoat of these goats is developed in winter, so usually, the cashmere season starts in spring. It requires specific weaving technology and a lot of skill to produce such a fabric, which is why cashmere is usually a bit costly. However, the result is more than satisfying.

It is soft, warm, and incredibly comfortable — these are cashmere's main and most noticeable qualities, but it is much more than this. Its thermoregulatory properties keep you warm during the winter but can also cool you down during the summer due to its breathability. Of course, not all the cashmere can be worn on hot days. Various types of yarn define how the piece can be used and when. These types don’t represent the quality of the yarn but only its thickness and weight.

They start with the 2-thread type, which is the most versatile, lightweight, and thin. 2-thread cashmere sweaters you can wear all year round; they will keep you warm and not get too hot under the sun. You will also encounter 4, 8, 12, and 14-thread types, which are thicker and warmer. So, choose your piece depending on the weather conditions you must fight and your preferences.

Another undeniable advantage of this material is its resistance to time. Yes, you can wear cashmere year after year, and it will not fade, stretch out, or break. But you have to take proper care of your clothing — wash and maintain it with suitable detergents, and keep the water temperature at a maximum of 30 degrees. Don’t forget to turn your clothes inside out before washing them. Also, at some point, you will notice pilling that will appear here or there. Don’t panic; it can be removed easily with an anti-pilling razor or cashmere comb. Take care of your cashmere, and it will take care of you for ages.

Sometimes cashmere is compared with wool, and despite many similarities, they have one significant difference: cashmere doesn’t contain lanolin. Lanolin is the wool grease secreted by the sheep glands, known as an allergen, so many people simply cannot wear wool because of this one component. Luckily, cashmere is hypoallergenic and completely unscretchy, so people allergic to wool have a decent substitute.

How to style a cashmere sweater: 10 outfit ideas

Now that we have proved the versatility and essentiality of cashmere pieces in our wardrobe, let’s get to the point: how do we style them in winter or warm spring days? How do you mix a cashmere sweater without effort but still look fashion-forward? How do you fit the same sweater in different combinations and make the most of it?

Honestly speaking, it is not as complicated as it seems. There are some general “rules” of proportions, like if your top is voluminous, try to keep your bottom slim, and vice versa. But these rules were made to break them. For example, you can easily combine oversized tops with bulky bottoms in modern street-style outfits. The relaxed fit of the clothes is generally trendy these seasons, so you shouldn’t be afraid of roomie things; they will add a contemporary flair to your attire. However, if you are a fan of slim fit, you can find some skinny pullovers to highlight your feminine curves. Both variations are worth checking out and can be used for various events. Relaxed shapes are more appropriate for casual everyday go-tos, while slim fits look great in business-like outfits and evening festive garments. We hope our sweater outfit ideas will inspire you to create astonishing new looks, and you will have fun creating them. Use your favorite pieces or expand your wardrobe with new lovely staples — you will never regret having more cashmere items in your possession. This investment will bring you joy and enhance your outfits through the years, not to mention how toasty and cozy it will make you feel! So, let’s have a look at our modish cashmere combinations and make this winter-spring season of 2024 comfy and pleasing.
