Embrace the rarest of charms, the cashmere jumper

Embrace the rarest of charms, the cashmere jumper

When Tom Wolfe posed for Esquire magazine he wore a bathrobe, suitable for a King. Made of fine, precious cashmeres the writer ditched his signature white three-piece suit for his most precious piece of clothing. Wolfe “actually works in this custom cashmere bathrobe, and not in the suit” proclaimed Esquire. A King deserves his precious attire, non?

A material made for royalty, cashmere is literally the luxury you deserve. Yes, it’s more expensive compared to other wool but this is how it goes with the rarest of materials. And cashmere is the diamond for the knitwear industry. Cashmere comes from goats, in fact from a very special type of goat that roams within parts of Asia, such as Mongolia, Tibet, Northern India, Iran, Afghanistan and Southwest China. 

Kashmir goats can produce only 4 ounces of cashmere each year, making the fiber extremely rare -especially compared to other types of hair -“it’s estimated that while there’s a yearly production of over 2.000.000 metric tons of sheep wool, the production of cashmere is much less than that, coming up to about 6.500 metric tons per year” reports Cashmeremania.

A wardrobe investment, cashmere will never go out of style and “with the cashmere market booming, thanks to the athleisure trend, there is no better time to invest in a top-shelf knit”. It is precious and you should embrace it with love. It will embrace you back with comfort and class. Light grey cashmere  jumper by Loro Piana. – Available at Luisa World Kolonaki.
