Cashmere is the ultimate everyday luxury – it’s like having a little hug (or a lot of hygge) throughout the day, and is the lightweight way to do winter layering. So, it’s time to start stocking up on cashmere pieces to take us through the chillier months. The trick is to layer cleverly – try a super soft jersey top, or crisp white shirt under your cashmere to give even more warmth, and the option to show the peak of sleeve and the cuff of your cashmere sweater.
Cashmere will look just as good dressed up for work as it will relaxed with jeans on the weekend, so you can wear it all season long. And, with the proper care, your precious cashmere pieces can last years! Having recently discovered cashmere wash, I’m giving my layers even more love! Just soak the garment for 30 minutes in a sink full of cool water and two capfuls of cashmere wash, run cool water through and gently press the water out. The trick here is not to ring your cashmere when wet; rather, lay flat on a towel and reshape as it dries. To ensure your cashmere stays smelling fresh, spritz wool and cashmere spray between wear and washing. Bliss!
