You think cashmere is only for winter? Then you clearly haven’t discovered the lively cashmere shades in the Xandres collection. Add a matching scarf and you’re all set to brave the cold spring mornings and the cool summer nights in style. Cashmere is a high-quality, durable fabric. Think of it as an investment in yourself and the future.
Here are a few interesting tips and tricks
- Always wash cashmere by hand or use the wool programme on your washing machine.
- Choose a cold programme: was at up to 30°C.
- Don’t use too much wool detergent, do not spin and do not wring out your cashmere clothes.
- The best way to dry cashmere is by laying it flat on a towel. When you buy a cashmere item at Xandres, you receive a special comb to remove any pilling.
DID YOU KNOW...
- Cashmere is named after the Kashmir region in India, Pakistan and China. That is where cashmere goats originally come from.
- Cashmere is one of the most expensive natural fibres because this soft fine wool is found only in the goats’ undercoat, and a mere 150 g can be collected at once.
- No other natural fabric offers such impressive warmth, such a pleasant feel on the skin and lasts so long.
- The price of cashmere depends on the colour, how fine the wool is, and how long and coarse the fibres are.
- The woollier and hairier the knit, the greater the risk of pilling. This does not indicate bad quality. It simply has to do with the characteristics of cashmere. Every season, Xandres adds colourful cashmere tops and scarves to its collection.
