But then, where does cashmere come from? Why is this material so popular? We have raised for you the most frequently asked questions so that you can know how to wear a cashmere sweater.
Known to all, cashmere is a fabric made from an undercoat of silky hair from goats found mainly in Mongolia and in the heights of Ladakh and Tibet. This undercoat of hair of these goats is developed in winter and it is at the time of their moulting, in the spring, that the cashmere period begins. Its name comes from the region where its weaving developed, the mountainous Kashmir region located in India.
Why choose cashmere?
The advantages of cashmere are numerous: softness, warmth, comfort, a thermoregulatory property and of course resistance to time. The material is also worked with a specific number of threads that will make up your sweater. Indeed, there are cashmeres with 2 threads, 4 threads, 8 threads, 12 threads and even 14 threads! These different types of yarn do not define the quality of the cashmeres but their thickness and their weight. LDB Paris cashmeres are 2-ply cashmere and represent the most standard thickness to be worn all year round. You can then take advantage of your garment in winter to resist the cold but also in summer to bring a casual chic touch to your style without getting too hot.
Unlike wool, cashmere does not contain lanolin which allows it to be hypoallergenic and not scratchy. It keeps for a long time because of its great resistance, especially if you take care to wash it and maintain it with suitable detergents. Know that it is a material that needs water to preserve itself and avoid the appearance of pilling. A word of advice, pilling can be removed with an anti-pilling razor or with a cashmere comb.
