It’s true, a cashmere sweater can be expensive. But it’s an investment that you won’t regret. Not only will you have a beautiful garment that you can wear for 3 out of 4 seasons each year (well, if you live in the Northwest), but it’s incredibly warm and ultra soft.
From now until the end of December, stores will be stocking lots of cashmere sweaters in a multitude of colors and styles. It’s also a good time to look for sales so be sure to check Bluefly and Macy’s for some good deals.
Dry clean or hand wash your cashmere with gentle detergent made for washing wool. Avoid regular laundry detergent, it will eat away the fibers. Lay flat to dry. Don’t ever put your cashmere in the dryer.
