With the temperature hitting proper-cold, Winter levels we've got a sudden interest in all things warming: hot chocolate, homemade soups and cosy knits. But not any old acrylic blend. Nuh-uh! The most luxurious yarn of all is cashmere, and this week we're going to investigate why it's worth it's weight in Max Brenner chocolate drops. This luxurious yarn is essentially the underlayer of fleece collected from the wool of the Cashmere (or Kashmir) goat. It's strong, very warm and exceedingly soft to touch — making cashmere a brilliant insulator and velvety-smooth to wear. Can you hear those cash registers ringing? Ka-ching!
Once you wear cashmere, it's hard to go back. Whether you're a cashmere collector from way back, or are yet to invest in your first piece — let us walk you through the best brands to buy from. These labels know their knits, so you can rest assured that these classic crews will pay for themselves in the chilly months to come. Cost per wear, remember? Winter, come at us!
