You know that saying, “You can never be too rich or too thin?” I would like to take this opportunity to tack on the addendum, “or have too many cashmere sweaters.” My personal obsession with cashmere began six years ago. In preparation for my first trip to dank and dreary London, I purchased a pair of cashmere-lined gloves to protect my digits from the elements. Little did I know how the spun-soft, wooly feeling against my skin would prove to be my hidden, secret addiction for years to come.
Cashmere does not come cheap—it takes a lot of work to shear the underbelly of a goat after all—but it does come in vastly affordable styles, colors and varieties if you know where to look. My cashmere cache is the classic American brand J. Crew. Summer, fall, winter and spring, each season has it’s own color palette and silhouettes that even the cute little Kashmir goats would be proud of. Whether you choose a forest green boat neck, a heather grey cardigan or a simple black t-shirt style, if you have never experienced the luxuriousness of cashmere you will soon discover that this is one fabric that is totally worth obsessing over.
