As the weather gets colder, you hardly need an excuse to cuddle up in your favourite cashmere buy! Whether it’s blankets, accessories or outerwear, kit yourself out in the perfect piece of cashmere and indulge in the super-soft feel against your skin.
Tired of itchy wool jumpers? Cashmere is the fabric for you. Made from the hair of cashmere goats, it’s naturally much lighter and silkier than lambswool or merino. But soft doesn’t always mean fragile, in fact cashmere is surprisingly strong and insulating when taken proper care of.
To make sure your cashmere buy lasts a lifetime, follow these expert tips. Cashmere should be washed by hand in lukewarm water with a gentle detergent – some experts even recommend using hair conditioner to keep your garments super soft. Allow your cashmere to air dry naturally, and avoid twisting and ringing it out. Store items carefully with a moth repellent and air them out every few months. Pilling is normal, and can be easily removed with a de-bobbling comb.
Luxurious cashmere makes an excellent addition to your winter wardrobe – a good cashmere item will keep you nice and toasty for many chilly winters to come. The selection of cashmere on offer is ever-increasing, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. Just one piece isn’t enough! For a luxurious winter treat why not invest in this gorgeous cashmere robe from Pure Collection. The only problem? It’ll be too comfy to take off!
