Cashmere socks are more comfortable and warm than normal fibers because of their unique composition of a scaled layer on the surface that firmly locks in body heat.
Cashmere is a layer of fine and soft fleece that grows on the skin of goats and covers the roots of their long hair. Compared with wool and other fibers, it is slim, soft, smooth, light, warm, lustrous, and stretchy, and makes up for the shortcomings of wool, which is thick, coarse, and astringent, with poor elasticity and high shrinkage.
Cashmere is the finest of the animal fibers, with fineness between 13 um and 15.5 um. It has a high degree of natural curl, is tightly arranged in spinning and weaving, and has good holding power, so it has good warmth and is 1.5 – 2 times warmer than wool. It is 1.5 – 2 times warmer than wool.
Cashmere fibers have small, smooth scales and an air layer in the middle of the fiber, making them light in weight and smooth to the touch. Cashmere fibers are uniform in fineness and density and have a regular round cross-section, which is highly hygroscopic and absorbs dyestuff well, making it difficult to fade.
Cashmere fiber is suitable to be processed into knitted products with rich and soft hand feel and good elasticity due to its larger curl number, curl rate, and curl recovery rate, and it is comfortable and natural to wear, and it has good restoration characteristics, especially it does not shrink after washing and has good shape retention.
Therefore, cashmere socks feel better than wool socks and other fiber socks, and are also warmer, which is a good product to keep warm in winter.
