Cashmere’s softness, featherweight and warmth sets it apart from all other fibers. Our fine cashmere sweaters feel luxurious indoors or out, but their extraordinary insulating qualities make them a hot new fiber for mountaineering and skiing. It’s hard to believe that one of the world’s softest natural fibers would come from one of it’s toughest climates, but most of the world’s cashmere actually comes from the harsh windy steppes of northern China.
