What is it about cashmere that makes it that much better than any other wools? We could talk about its origins – combed from the undercoat of the Mongolian Aerbasi, softer and finer than any other goat’s hair. We could talk about its natural properties – how breathable and insulating it is when compared to man-made fibres. We could even talk about how scarce it is in comparison to something like cotton – with 6,500 tonnes vs 6 million tonnes produced globally each year. But the real reason we buy cashmere is much more than the sum of its parts. It’s the same sort of quality you find in a fine whiskey or a night in your childhood bedroom – unadulterated comfort and familiarity. The point we’re trying to make, digressions aside, is that cashmere needs no sales pitch. It’s just good. Where things become more complicated is when it comes to caring for your yarns. Fortunately, our remit extends to washing, storing and combing your cashmere (yes, that is a thing), as we’ll explain below.
