There’s really nothing that can be likened to the soft touch of cashmere on your skin and because of this, one can actually, for a minute, think that this impossibly soft material is made from the clouds. Another reason why someone would think this is because of how expensive this material is. If the cashmere material in itself is expensive, then surely by extension, one should expect everything made from it to be equally expensive; cashmere jumpers are no exception.
The answer is simple: They are expensive because the cashmere material in itself is expensive.
Why Is The Cashmere Material So Expensive?
The first thing you need to know is that cashmere is made from goats. Yes, goats are the G.O.A.T!
Cashmere comes from cashmere goats, the only animals that can produce those luxurious, highly coveted fibers.
Experts who are into the business rearing cashmere goats have made us understand that a single cashmere goat does not really produce a lot. You only get to harvest the fibers once a year and this is mostly done by combing the “undercoat”, which sheds yearly. Once you’ve harvested, you can get between six to eight ounces from a really good goat initially, but once you begin to process the cashmere, you get about four ounces back.
Don’t make the mistake of confusing the “undercoat” as the hair you see on the body of a cashmere goat. The undercoat is closer to the goat’s skin and must be separated from the outer layer of hair.
This is why it takes about four goats to make just one sweater. and this is why cashmere is so expensive.
Made from soft, 100% cashmere, our cashmere jumpers have been designed with so much detail and style. If you’re going to get yourself a cashmere, you definitely want it to be 100%.
