The name cashmere comes from an old spelling of Kashmir, the region where its production and trade originated, possibly as early as the Mongolian empire in the 13th century. Cashmere is known for its extreme softness, warmth and lustrous quality. High quality cashmere is expensive due to the difficult production process and its scarcity (on average a cashmere goat generates only 150g of fibre per year and it takes 300g to make a jumper). Nevertheless
it is the most desirable fibre in the world. Wearing a silky soft cashmere sweater is truly uncomparable experience. When cared for correctly, a high quality cashmere product will last you for life.
Merino wool is known as the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Merino wool is highly breathable because its fibers can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture wicking it away from the body so the wearer stays dry. In contrast to synthetics merino is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold and cool when the weather is hot. The natural anti-microbial properties of this wool make it odor-resistant. Merino wool is also extremely durable, does not require exceptional care and can be easily dyed in any colour.
