Cashmere is the thing to wear in the cold winter. It is warm and soft to handle. It looks very sophisticated and trendy, and is yet very comfortable to wear as well. No wonder, cashmere is so popular around the world. But that buttery feel is synonymous with cost, since the fibers are plucked from the bellies of the eponymous goat. They must then be separated from the coarser outer hair it’s mingled with. This takes time. And of course, more the luxury and time, the more you will have to pay for it.
However cashmere is an investment and it’s worth it. Cashmere is finer than sheep’s wool. This makes it softer and traps air, and so you have more warmth. Which means that, you can outflank bulky silhouettes.
You don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune on cashmere. There are other ways you can introduce a touch of luxury to your wardrobe this season.
Get a cashmere overcoat. It adds a relaxed elegance to a sometimes bulky piece of outerwear because of those heat-trapping fibers. The overcoat will also offer a visual contrast to your winter tailoring. But beware – it is so soft that people won’t be able to keep their hands off you. Just check the weather forecast. Cashmere sucks up rain and can lose its shape when it dries.
Bedtime just got a whole lot more luxurious. These pyjamas are so comfortable that you might want to go to bed as soon as you wear them. They are going to regulate your temperature, so you are going to feel warm on a cold wintry night. However, they will stay cool once you have slipped between the sheets. They are machine washable too.
