When making the commitment to shop mindfully this can be expressed in several ways. From choosing quality over quantity, investing in vintage finds to being selective with fibres you elect to drape yourself in.
Cashmere has long been associated with luxury and naturally it’s high price point can be a deterrent for the consumer. This natural product is renowned for its insulating yet lightweight benefits, elegant aesthetic and softness but what is less known is the life span of its fibres.
Though expensive, garments crafted from cashmere are a timeless investment as they are intrinsically built to last. Cashmere is one of the world’s longest lasting fibres and when properly cared for can last for decades.
For me, its wrinkle resistant capabilities and comfort make cashmere, more specifically a cashmere topper, the perfect travel essential. The topper designed by Australian brand Esperance & Co allows it to be effortlessly worn with any look whilst maintaining a minimal and understated aesthetic.
To ensure your garment goes the distance be sure to follow these three cardinal rules
Lay flat at all times, especially when drying
Don’t wash after every wear
Wash with cold water, use minimal detergent and in a garment care bag
“A cashmere knit is like a book. It is something to save and go back to time after time. It is the feeling of an embrace.” –Brunello Cucinelli
