Cosy Cashmere

cosy-cashmereThe ultimate luxury fabric for Winter has to be cashmere, once you pull on a cashmere jumper you will never want to take it off! As well as feeling amazing, cashmere is also extremely practical; offering warmth in the Winter and keeping you cool during warmer months. It rarely pulls and doesn’t wrinkle, so although it is often hand-wash only, which for some is less than ideal, it does travel and wear very well.

Whilst it would be impractical (and expensive!) to own a wardrobe full of cashmere, it is certainly worth investing in an item of cashmere clothing this season if you can. You may pay a little more, but if you take care of it, it will last you for many seasons!

There are some amazing cashmere pieces to suit all styles this season, here are a few of my favourites…

Tips to care for your Cashmere
    • Wash your cashmere on a gentle, cool cycle
    • Try to use a specific wool and cashmere washing liquid – baby shampoo also works but above all make sure it is non-biological
    • Garments should be dried flat and, ideally, ironed
    • When storing cashmere through the summer months, make sure it is spotlessly clean and use a moth killer in our drawer or wardrobe
