First off, if you get the “it’s a cashmerical” reference, leave a comment below. Whether a v-neck, crew neck or scoop neck, a cashmere sweater is an excellent investment for winter. Anything from light, paper-thin styles to chunky knits that are perfect for layering, a chic and basic cashmere sweater is a wardrobe essential. It’s the coziest option in the world of sweaters and can withstand the test of time (if cared for properly). That being said, the price range can vary significantly.
Cashmere is the most expensive fabric you can buy. Naturally something that is 100% cashmere is going to be more expensive than your typical low-end sweater. Did you know it takes more than 2 goats to make a single sweater? Therefore, it can also be up to 8 times warmer than a traditional wool sweater. Perfect for those long, cold, dry Canadian winters.
Since I hate being cold, and Canada is usually cold 9 months out of the year, a cashmere sweater is an excellent option. Walking around on crisp, sunny, fall days are fine, but once the snow hits, I’m left shivering like a baby. This warm, chic and cozy Aritzia cashmere sweater has helped with that.
