Why You’ll Want to Wear Cashmere This Winter

Why You’ll Want to Wear Cashmere This Winter

With winter just around the corner and the cold weather upon us, you are probably ready to bundle up with bulky sweaters and lots of layers to keep warm. But have you ever considered wearing more cashmere products? Though the fabric is often considered to be fine and delicate, there are plenty of reasons why you’ll want to wear cashmere this winter.

What is cashmere?

Cashmere is a special yarn that comes from rare fibers found in the undercoat of cashmere goats. It has both water-resistant and strong insulating properties. Cashmere is also very durable and can easily last ten years or many more if taken care of properly.

Why is cashmere better?

Because of its temperature and moisture sensitive properties, cashmere will keep you cool or warm you up as needed, which means you won’t need to be constantly shedding or adding layers during winter. It’s also very durable and doesn’t shrink or wrinkle, so you won’t have to worry about something ruining your favorite sweater. Cashmere is also great for those with allergies and sensitive skin, as the structure of the fibers naturally repel particles and residue. And since cashmere is all-natural, it doesn’t contain allergens like some other materials. Cashmere is also incredibly smooth and soft, which helps to prevent skin irritations and redness.

Here at DC Knits, we offer many high-quality cashmere products, from cardigans to hats and more. We are a Santa Fe boutique specializing in custom knitwear. Shop online or come visit us in person today!
