FALL IN LOVE WITH CASHMERE.
IT WILL LAST FOREVER // CLASSIC + TIMELESS.
Cashmere — if well cared for — should improve with age by getting softer over time. At Elle + Riley, we want our sweaters to be passed onto the next generation which is why we created our own care products and guide. Moreover, our timeless styles are designed to last season after season.
IT’S TEMPERATURE REGULATING // BREATHES + INSULATES.
The cashmere fibre is hollow and fine making it lighter and softer than wool. Thus, cashmere is more insulating, keeping you warm in wintertime (7-8 times more so than merino) and making sure you don’t overheat during the warmer months.
IT’S LIGHT AND SOFT (NOT SCRATCHY) // SOFT + SENSUAL.
Again the cashmere fibre is fine and hollow making the end garments much lighter (and more inviting to wear during the summertime). Cashmere also lacks the lanolin that other wool has, making it hypoallergenic and ensuring it doesn’t feel scratchy.
IT’S SLOW FASHION // RARE + LUXURIOUS.
Cashmere is intensive to produce. The ultra soft hair is combed from the undercoat of the goats, often only yielding 120g per animal, before skilled artisans must spin the yarn into sweaters and other garments. It can take the undercoats of 2-3 goats to make a sweater. Hence the saying ‘2 goats, 1’ sweater. Each piece of cashmere can fairly be considered a heritage item, hopefully treasured for years to come.
