Happy Cashmere Day! We are celebrating all things cashmere and have a special discount of 15% off all New In cashmere pieces for this weekend only. Just use the code ‘NewIn15’ at checkout. Treat yourself to a luxurious Castanea piece this season that will last for years to come. We have been reflecting on what exactly it is that makes cashmere so amazing and here are our top favourite things about cashmere:
1. Cashmere lasts forever
When you purchase high quality cashmere pieces they will last for years to come. If cared for properly, cashmere garments will get softer with each wash and will hold up impeccably over the years. Like all women, cashmere gets better with age.
Use our Cashmere Care Guide to ensure you are washing your cashmere correctly and get the most wear out of your garments.
2. Cashmere can be worn all year round
Cashmere is our favourite thing to wear in Summer, Winter and everything in between. It is as comfortable to wear on a summer afternoon as it is on a frosty winter morning as it is lightweight but incredibly warm. Cashmere fibres are extremely thin meaning a sweater produced from 100% cashmere may look thin but is an excellent thermal layer.
3. Cashmere is an ethical fashion choice
Animal welfare, sustainability and traceability are the three pillars of the cashmere industry’s ethical sourcing initiatives. All Castanea’s garments are made using the best cashmere yarns we can find. We seek out companies that work in partnership with approved de-hairers & encourage sustainable herding and grazing practices.
A cashmere garment is a garment for life and by purchasing high quality garments that can be worn year after year you are positively contributing to the slow fashion movement.
4. Cashmere makes the perfect gift
What better way to treat a loved one (or yourself) than to a luxurious cashmere garment that they will have for year. Cashmere accessories such as hats and scarfs are a beautiful gift idea and can be paired together to create extra luxurious gift sets.
Caring for your Cashmere
Caring for your cashmere is very important to ensure that your cashmeres stay with you for as long as possible, and if cared for properly your cashmere pieces will get even better with age. We have put together this Cashmere Care Guide to help you. Follow the guide step by step to ensure that you get the most out of your favourite cashmere pieces.
Cashmere Style Inspiration
It is no doubt that this season is very different to our usual Autumn Winter months. Instead of getting dressed up for Christmas parties and nights out we are embracing outdoor dining, long walks and relaxing at home. We have you covered for the latest style inspiration on embracing our new normal and making sure that you are warm and comfortable this Winter. Here are some of our favourite cashmere looks for this season.
