Who said all cashmere had to be one single color? For this cardigan, we knit two contrasting colors together to create a depth and texture you don't often see in this material. Italian-designed, a zip front and mock turtleneck give this sweater a stylish snap. Still that same luxurious cashmere feel and lighter-than-air warmth, but with a rich complex look heightened by piping at the sleeves and collar. Extraordinary cashmere! Quality metal zipper. Light to Medium weight. Fits slightly on the smaller side, so if you're often in between sizes, go one size up. Pure Cashmere, made to our demanding specifications in China.
What is Cashmere?
Cashmere is the fine under-hair of a goat that lives on the steppes of central Asia. Its yearly production of about 7000 metric tons is only .5% of sheep's-wool production. It takes the fleece of three goats to make one sweater. Cashmere is known for its exquisite softness but it is also much warmer than wool, and is ideal for winter sports. 60% of the world's cashmere comes from Northern China.
