9 Best Cashmere Sweaters for Women

0

Few garments are as classic and timeless as a cashmere sweater. Well-made cashmere sweaters can last for years or even decades, which is handy considering they never go out of style. Perfect worn to work with nice pants or to the ballpark with leggings and a cap, a cashmere sweater is a staple and workhorse in any woman’s wardrobe.

But, as is often the case with these must-have garments, cashmere can get quite expensive. As a luxury fabric, the sourcing of real cashmere is a bit tight, resulting in a high-quality product that performs at equally high prices, in most cases. Luckily, some brands have found ways to cut costs while still providing customers with top-notch cashmere, which means it’s now possible to pick up a coveted cashmere sweater for just $50.

We’ve rounded up the best women’s cashmere sweaters on the market below, but you might want to do some research before hitting “buy now.”

How to buy good quality cashmere?

Two key factors will tell you if cashmere is high quality or not. You will want to see where the cashmere comes from and what quality it is.

Where does the best cashmere come from?

Without competition, the best cashmere is that of Inner Mongolia. Cashmere from here is usually long and strong thanks to the region’s freezing temperatures. Cashmere is made from goats, and Inner Mongolian goats really have the best hair for cashmere fibers. Most of the sweaters on this list are from Mongolia, including many from Inner Mongolia.

Grade quality

Cashmere can range in quality level from AC, with A being the highest quality. Grade A cashmere has the longest fibres, which means they will be both the softest and the most durable. Since cashmere is a luxury fabric, we always advise spending a little more to ensure you get the best quality, as these sweaters are investment pieces and closet staples. Most of the jerseys on this list are A grade.

How to care for cashmere sweaters

So, ready to invest in your first cashmere sweater? Not so fast! You want to be sure you have the know-how to care for this finicky fabric. Cashmere can be badly rolled as a high-maintenance fabric, but while it does require a bit more care, it’s worth the time and effort in the long run. Taking care of your cashmere will allow it to last for at least years, if not decades.

For starters, know that cashmere will make pills. Grade A cashmere is the least pilling, but you should still expect it from any cashmere sweater. A cashmere comb is an essential tool to have on hand. You can use a cloth razor, but we prefer a comb considering how expensive these sweaters can be.

You will always want to hand wash your cashmere sweater and wash it as few times as possible. High-quality cashmere can hold its shape for years, but every wash degrades the fibers the least, so it’s essential to be soft. Also make sure you use a mild detergent, preferably a cashmere detergent.

Finally, to avoid these dreaded moths, store your cashmere sweaters with cedar leaves Where balls Where mothballs. We prefer cedar planks because they don’t give off the pungent smell of moth balls, but if you’re planning on doing a pre-season wash of your cashmere, the smell might not be an issue for you.
