Not all cashmere is the same, the proof is in the goat hair.
Fine cashmere, such as Marlowe’s is 100 % cashmere and ONLY the longer whiter hair of the goat. The majority of cashmere is a mix between the long hair and the short darker hairs of the goat.
Cashmere is season-less
Fine cashmere can be worn for softness and comfort and NOT for warmth.
Marlowe uses tissue weight cashmere.
You should not dry-clean cashmere (once every 6 months). It should be handled less often and washing from time to time is best.
Cashmere does not wrinkle.
