If You Own Only One Sweater, Make Sure It’s Cashmere!
“If you own only one sweater, make sure it’s cashmere”.
One of my favourite quotes from the book How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are.
I have always believed in good quality materials, so I adopt a 80/20 rule when it comes to my clothing; I try and buy clothes with natural fibers 80% of the time and indulge in cheaper, lesser quality fabrics 20% of the time.
Cashmere sweaters, if cared for well, can last for years. Since cashmere is a natural fiber, it will breathe and so is more durable in the long term.
However, because of this, cashmere sweaters tend to be quite expensive. There are a few brands though that you can turn too for more affordable cashmere. UNIQLO is one of them, and they also frequently have sales on their cashmere as well!
