Cashmere scarf from China
The Chinese cashmere scarf is popular because of its high quality and low price. Nowadays, 70% of the world’s cashmere product is produced in China. There are two criteria for a good quality cashmere: 1. it has little elasticity and is not easily deformed; 2. and the texture is prepared more closely. Chinese cashmere meets both of them.
Why choose from a cashmere scarf?
First of all, because cashmere is very skin-friendly, silky and soft. The skin of this part of the neck is very sensitive, as long as the scarf has a little rough, it will make people feel prickly and unbearable. So the scarf fabric must be selected fine enough soft.
Under the microscope, cashmere’s wool scales close more closely than wool’s, the fiber surface is smoother, and it feels softer and more skin-friendly than wool. Inner Mongolia cashmere, with a fiber thickness of only 14-19 microns, is finer and softer than wool. It’s very soft to the touch, and it’s like being surrounded by a cloud around your neck. No neck sticking at all! Soft and warm to let people sink their faces into, super healing.
The characteristics of cashmere scarf
The warmth of cashmere fabric is particularly good. The fibers of cashmere are hollow and can store heat and air, plus the material is solid and can withstand the cold wind in winter. Its warmth is twice that of wool, and a cashmere scarf in winter is warmer than two ordinary sweaters you wear.
Cashmere scarf can be used for a long time
The cashmere scarf is very durable. As long as you wash and care properly, a pashmina can accompany you through many winters. The cashmere scarf you bought last year, turn it out of the cupboard again this year and put it around your body, it is still as warm and soft as it was when you first bought it last year.
What is a cashmere scarf?
Cashmere is the finest and softest layer of fleece on the goat, growing at the root of the wool. Every spring and summer is the goat’s shedding season, the herdsman will use a comb to comb down this layer of fleece a little. Comb down is not finished, but also to wash and dry the cashmere, and then manually pick out the cashmere in the miscellaneous hair, black hair. Only then do we get such a white, silky, long fiber wool. After that, we go through many combing and weaving processes to get a thick and warm cashmere scarf.
Cashmere is also known as “soft gold” because it is produced in small quantities and the process is complex and is valued in grams like gold. Each sheep can only collect about 170g of cashmere in a year, and a scarf of 300g, with 98% cashmere, is equivalent to the cashmere from two sheep. The moment your skin touches the cashmere, you will know that your money is well spent after experiencing the soft and wonderful touch.
