In the world of natural-fiber garments and products, cashmere reigns supreme. Cashmere — a fine hair obtained from goats — is soft, breathable and strong, and provides better insulation than sheep’s wool. Because of its superlative qualities, cashmere is one of the most expensive natural fibers (though qiviut, the inner wool of the muskox, takes the top prize) and is most often found upscaling other wools. From sweaters and hats to blankets and gloves, the rules of the cashmere game are soft, light and warm, so accept no substitutions this spring and upgrade your natural-fiber knits with this soft gold.
