First of all, let’s talk about the cashmere scarf
Cashmere is mainly derived from goats, and a special comb is required to collect it from the roots of the goat's coarse hair. The fiber diameter is only 14 to 16 microns. Because its cashmere scales are round, there is no feeling of neck tie. Wool mainly comes from sheep and does not require special collection. Its diameter is larger than cashmere, and the hair scales of wool are pointed, so no matter how much or 100% wool, it will feel like a tie.
So how to distinguish cashmere from wool in terms of feel
The cashmere feels soft and does not feel like a neck tie. The higher the content of wool, the softer it feels, but because the hair scales are sharp and medulla, it has a tie-neck feel. No matter how much the content, the texture of cashmere is soft and delicate, but cashmere is easier to pilling than wool, acid and alkali resistance is not as strong as wool. . Because cashmere has high natural crimp, it is tightly arranged in spinning and weaving, and has good cohesion, so it has good warmth retention, which is 1.5 to 2 times that of wool. Cashmere is not easy to wrinkle, has strong elasticity, and can recover soon after hanging. Cashmere has good moisture absorption, so it can fully absorb dyes and is not easy to fade. But because of the small amount of plush, it is not easy to collect, so the price is more expensive than wool
Washing of wool and cashmere
Wool cashmere is mainly a natural fiber component, so it is best to wash it in cold water (or warm water, the water temperature should not exceed 30 degrees), and it should not be rubbed or wrung out by hand. It cannot be machine washed. If you want to machine wash, you have to choose a washing machine with a cashmere button. After washing, use a towel to absorb the water and hang it, and do not expose it to the sun. Or use dry cleaning methods, mild laundry detergent or cashmere wool cleaning agent.
