The best cashmere pieces!
Baby it’s cold outside! It’s time to find the best cashmere brands and to know a little bit more about it. Read below how to choose your next cashmere piece, and some inspirations from my favourite ones.
What is cashmere?
Its value is determined by its length and fineness; a longer fiber with a fineness between 14 and 19 microns is of a higher quality and will produce less bobbles – more common in garments made of shorter cashmere strands.
Manufacturers are quite often mixing the strands to balance quality with cost. Read the label carefully – and don’t judge a cashmere item by the thickness only, but also by the ply’s (quantity of strands)!
Their know-how make the difference between good and exceptional: a choice of more than 4000 colours, handcrafted buttons, invisible seams, individual quality controls and creations up to 24-ply!
Ryan Roche is an expert in knitwear, designing pieces so chic and comfortable that you won’t want to take them off. Launched in New York in 2011 by Janelle Okwodu, with a focus on layered knits made from luxe cashmere and sumptuous draping in rich, tonal palettes, Roche is also committed to responsible manufacturing and sustainable, low-impact production methods.
This German brand recently celebrated “25 years of soft”. They source the wool in Xinjiang, China’s westernmost region where the goats, and the nomads looking after them, live in a very tough and changing climate.
They are the only ones to offer the services of a Cashmere clinic online to fix or take care of your favorite pieces – you can even customize your sweater! They have a great pure cashmere collection of jumpers, dresses, skirts and accessories – but my absolute favorite is their multicolour cashmere star patch knitted tracksuit! So funky!
More of my favorite pieces!
Here below my favorite pieces of the season from the best quality of cashmere designers.
A luxury fabric always require special attention – and you probably already know, that a cashmere item needs to be washed gently by hand, or in the machine with cold cycle or “wool program”. Your cashmere jumper actually likes water! So, you can go for it, but use the proper cycle and detergent. It always must dry flat and away from the sun light to keep the original shape and colour. After a while, you can use a specific cashmere comb to remove the bobbles, and tadaaaaa! Like new!
I hope you liked this little article – keep warm out there! 🙂
