It’s the Cadillac of sweater materials for good reason: “Cashmere goat fibers are warmer, lighter, and more durable than sheep’s wool,” says our Textiles Product Analyst Alan. And, of course, it’s soft as butter. But if you’re going to spend a small fortune on a sweater, you’ll want to get your money’s worth.
1. Choose 100% cashmere.
While a blend (listed on the sweater’s label) may cost less, it’s more likely to pill or shed: A blend twists together fibers of varying lengths, and the shorter fibers can loosen and break off. If 100% cashmere isn’t an option, try to avoid blends of three or more fibers.
2. Do a touch test.
If it feels (or looks) fuzzy, it will likely pill or shed.
3. Seek out two-ply yarn.
Check the hangtag for the yarn ply (a.k.a. strand number) and pick two-ply over single-ply — it’s more durable.
4. Check the transparency.
Insert your hand in the sweater and hold it up to the light. See your hand? It’s too thin.
5. Perform a wrinkle test.
Ball up the sleeve, then see if the fabric springs back into shape without creasing. If so, it’s a keeper.
6. Inspect the seams.
Armholes and necklines should be “fully fashioned” — i.e., knitted into each other, not just sewn together.
Bonus Care Tip
Store cashmere sweaters folded in a drawer — not on a hanger, which can cause dents and sagging. “I fold mine inside out so the outer fabric stays protected”
