Our Quest For The Finest Fibers

Cashmere, renowned for its unparalleled softness and luxury, is a 100% natural fiber. Meticulously selected and ethically sourced to ensure a perfect blend of comfort and sustainability. So we can proudly present these exquisite, eco-conscious creations to you.

What is cashmere?

Cashmere, one of the softest and most luxurious natural fibers, is sourced from the undercoat of cashmere goats. Its fine, silky texture has been valued since the third century BC, used by Chinese nobility and gaining prominence in 19th-century Europe.

How is cashmere made?

Cashmere, sourced from the soft undercoat of cashmere goats, is collected in spring when the goats shed their dense winter coat.

Herdsmen carefully comb or shear the goats, separating the soft undercoat fibers from coarse guard hairs. These fibers undergo meticulous processing to remove impurities and prevent shrinkage.

Is all cashmere created equal?

Of course NO!

Cashmere is graded from A to C based on the thickness and length of the fibers:

  • Grade A: the longest and finest fibers, having a diameter of 14-15.5 microns and a length of 34-36mm.
  • Grade B: thicker than Grade A with a diameter of 19 microns.
  • Grade C: the lowest quality with fibers around 30 microns in diameter.


Our cashmere stands out not only for its superior quality but also for its sustainability and ethical sourcing.

Why we choose cashmere?

Soft

Cashmere is exceptionally soft due to its fine fibers. Its incredible fineness makes it one of the softest and most luxurious materials available, providing a smooth, itch-free feel compared to other materials.

Durable

Cashmere's natural elasticity allows it to retain its shape for many years. The robust fibers resist stretching, warping, and fading with proper care. Quality cashmere can last a lifetime and becomes softer with time.

Breathable

As a 100% natural fiber, cashmere can absorb water vapor and sweat, ensuring breathability and comfort. Even after extended wear, cashmere keeps the skin feeling fresh and smooth.

Lightweight

Cashmere fibers are exceptionally fine, creating a lightweight yarn perfect for delicate garments. Unlike the bulkiness of sheep wool or synthetic fibers, cashmere provides superior comfort and ease.

Is cashmere worth it?

Cashmere is more expensive due to its rarity and the meticulous production process.

Each goat yields a limited amount of fiber annually, requiring careful hand-collection and processing to preserve its delicate quality.

Can cashmere worn all year round?

Absolutely, cashmere can be worn year-round.

As a natural fiber, it regulates body temperature, retaining heat in winter and wicking moisture in summer. Known for its insulation, cashmere also allows air circulation and keeps you cool in warmer weather.

#1 Avoid Damage: Keep cashmere away from sharp objects to prevent snags and tears.

#2 Proper Storage:
Store cashmere in a cool, dry place. Use acid-free tissue paper and avoid plastic bags to prevent yellowing. When traveling, use a garment bag to protect it from dirt and wrinkles.

#3 Washing:
- Hand Wash: Use a mild detergent or baby shampoo in cool water. Turn the item inside-out, soak gently, and press out excess water without wringing or twisting.
- Machine Wash: Select a delicate or hand-wash cycle with cold water and a non-biological detergent. Avoid bleach.
- Dry Cleaning: For convenience, take your cashmere to a dry cleaner and request delicate detergent.

#4 Drying: Lay flat on a towel to air dry. Never hang cashmere to dry, as this can stretch the fibers.

#5 Ironing: If needed, use a pressing cloth and a low temperature setting to iron. Avoid direct contact with the iron.

#6 De-pilling: Use a cashmere comb to remove pilling by brushing in one direction. This helps maintain the smooth texture of the fabric.

#7 Regular Maintenance: Fold cashmere neatly and store in a dry, moth-free environment to prevent stretching and damage.

By following these care instructions, your cashmere garments will remain soft, durable, and luxurious for years to come.

FAQs about cashmere care.

1. What is cashmere?

Cashmere is a premium luxury fiber harvested from cashmere goats, which are raised at high altitudes. Known for being one of the warmest and softest wool fibers available, cashmere allows for garments that are both lightweight and warm. As a result, cashmere products offer the same warmth as other wools but with less bulk, providing a comfortable and elegant option for winter wear.

2. Is cashmere same as wool?

Wool and cashmere have similar characteristics, but cashmere is globally recognized as one of the softest and warmest yarns. Sheep's wool is coarser, often causing itchiness when worn next to the skin. In contrast, cashmere, derived from the fine underbelly hair of cashmere goats, is much softer. Additionally, cashmere is eight times warmer than sheep's wool, making it an exceptionally cozy material for garments.

3. Why is cashmere typically more expensive?

The production of cashmere is a meticulous process, which contributes to its relatively high cost. Additionally, cashmere is highly valued for its exceptional fiber quality and superior performance characteristics.

Cashmere garments are significantly warmer than those made from sheep's wool, yet they are much lighter in weight. Moreover, the fibers of cashmere are extremely fine and soft, making it an ideal material for individuals who find other fibers uncomfortable against their skin.

4. Is cashmere itchy?

Contrary to widespread belief, cashmere is not inherently itchy. Itchiness typically arises from substandard processing or the use of inferior fibers. By identifying and addressing these factors, we can ensure that when properly processed and sourced, high-quality cashmere provides nothing but luxurious softness and warmth, completely free of discomfort.

5. Can I wear cashmere in summer?

Absolutely! The best quality cashmere is soft, fine, lightweight, and provides excellent insulation. It comes from the ultra-fine undercoat hairs of cashmere goats, mainly in Inner Mongolia. These long, fine fibers are collected as the goats shed in spring, ensuring temperature regulation and breathability. Top-quality cashmere includes versatile pieces such as sweaters, pashminas, blazers, and gilets, perfect for year-round wear.

6. How do I remove and prevent pilling from my cashmere?

While we can't keep cashmere from pilling completely, here are some tips to minimize it:
- Rest Between Wears: Allow the garment time to rest and fibers to recover their shape, reducing pilling.
- Careful Washing: Hand wash cashmere inside out and dry it flat to maintain its structure.
- Select Brushed Cashmere: Choose brushed over washed and dyed cashmere to minimize friction and reduce pilling.

To remove pilling from your cashmere, the most effective method is using a cashmere comb. Simply brush the comb gently over areas with loose fibers to remove pilling, leaving your cashmere smooth and preventing further damage.
Avoid using razors or scissors as these can cause additional harm to your garment.

7. How often should I wash for my cashmere?

We trust your judgment on when to launder your garments. However, it's a misconception that frequently washing cashmere speeds up wear. In fact, cashmere's porous nature makes it prone to absorbing dirt and odors. Neglecting to wash it can accelerate deterioration. We recommend washing your cashmere as needed to maintain its quality and prolong its lifespan.

8. How to wash cashmere clothing?

- Hand Wash: Use a mild detergent or baby shampoo in cool water. Turn the item inside-out, soak gently, and press out excess water without wringing or twisting.
- Machine Wash: Select a delicate or hand-wash cycle with cold water and a non-biological detergent. Avoid bleach.
- Dry Cleaning: For convenience, take your cashmere to a dry cleaner and request delicate detergent.
