It's very cold in winter this year. I feel that last year's equipment is not enough. Hey, isn't that really an excuse to buy?
Cashmere must be gently hand washed, while some wools, including merino can be machine washed; some people like fussing over their clothes.If you go to a yarn shop, chances are you will be drawn to look at and touch the cashmere yarns more than then merino. The cashmere yarns will draw your eye by their luster, the loveliness of both the undyed (cream, brown, grey) and dyed colors, and you will be drawn by the “hand" feel of the cashmere.One example of the virtue of cashmere over wool is a lovely woven cashmere shawl I have. It is a rectangle that is longer than my fully extended fingertips, and reaches from my neck to my mid thighs, yet it weighs just ounces. It can be pulled easily through a woman's gold wedding ring. Even on a cold New Year's eve in the Northeast, it has kept me toasty warm when I wore a strapless evening dress. In fact, it felt more cozy than my very heavy, lined wool winter coat!
From now on, many women want to by a cashmere scarf. So today I want to wirte a article about cashmere scarf.
Cashmere is what we call "Cashmere". Cashmere grows on the outer skin of goat, and the root of goat's long hair is a layer of soft wool. Every autumn and winter, cashmere begins to grow to resist the severe cold, and begins to fall off when it warms in spring. Before the cashmere falls off, the breeder collects the cashmere bit by bit with a special iron comb, which is the process of cashmere collection. After sorting, washing and combing, cashmere can be woven or knitted into cashmere products.
The output of cashmere is very small. Until now, goats can only produce about 120-170g cashmere every year. If a pure cashmere sweater is 340g, a cashmere sweater needs cashmere grown on the same sheep for two to three years to be completed. It is conceivable that cashmere is rare and precious. It is also known as "soft gold" and "fiber gem".
Cashmere has many advantages.
1.Cashmere is warm but not thick. Its warmth retention is 8 times that of ordinary wool.
2.Cashmere products are extremely soft. The fiber fineness of cashmere ranges from 14 microns to 19 microns. The extremely fine natural fiber ensures its soft hand feel.
3.It is not easy to deform, wrinkle and pilling.
4.It is suitable for personal wear and can quickly and automatically adjust the temperature suitable for skin physiology with human skin.
But how to maintenance cashmere products？ With good maintenance, cashmere products can be used for a long time or even for life. Cashmere products will become softer over time, and there is only a small amount of pilling after wearing and washing for a long time. Think about the cost performance of cashmere, isn't it also very high.
Since the cashmere is so good, how can we tell whether the cashmere scarf in front of us is good cashmere? Crispy Jun teaches you two simple ways.
1.Rub your palm on the scarf to see if it is pilling, and observe whether it is easy to wrinkle. Good cashmere rarely pilling and wrinkle.
2.Pull the scarf around and see if it can change back to its original shape immediately. Remember that good cashmere products are not easy to deform.
But how to clean cashmere scarf?
Knitted cashmere items shall be hand washed with special cashmere washing solution or soap and cold water. Do not twist or twist. After washing, gently press with a towel to remove excess water, and place it flat on a clean and dry towel until it is completely air dried.
If it's woven, it can only be dry cleaned.
Absolutely!! I am wondering why not?! :) Actually cashmere holds a very special place in my heart because of the online website that I launched with handwoven cashmere scarves. My initiative supports a small community of aging weavers in Jammu and Kashmir. The process is laborious and a story you want to tell again and again. As long as you know what kind of cashmere you're getting (even better if it proves to be sustainable), and how it's being processed and made, you'll never want to own another kind of fabric for your winter months or transitional seasons. These days the market is flooded with low quality and all kinds of mixes that people call cashmere and that's what confuses the customers and also affects the genuine cashmere weavers. Cashmere is a beautiful, natural fabric so just make sure yours isn't made in some factory and processed with heavy, harsh chemicals to make it soft!! Something I learned after having researched for a few months (most brands that mass produce using cheap labor, either don't offer superior quality fabrics, or it’s inferior textile blends, or pass the fabric through heavy chemicals and machines killing the natural texture). I have done. I have a cashmere scarf and a very unusual cashmere neckerchief, made by a special process unique to Begg & Co in Scotland. They treat the cashmere prior to weaving, so it can be made extremely finely. The treatment is then washed out to leave a cloth that feels amazing. I've also bought cashmere scarves and shawls as gifts for my other half, my mum and friends.
