soft as a dream
Until recently, cashmere didn't really factor in on my fashion-must-have radar. I'd heard about cashmere sales, and felt the ultra soft sweaters in stores, but never actually owned or desired a cashmere garment. Also, I wasn't sure that the fabric was luxurious enough to warrant a 3 digit price tag. Well, recently a fellow fashionette (who is somewhat of a cashmere connoisseur) introduced me to the world of this fine fabric, and after a few shopping trips where we garnered stares by brushing the material against our cheeks to test its softness, I am much more appreciative. The little details are so important- from the pure, gorgeous colour of the fibres to the way the shoulders are knit together with a separate yoke instead of a seam.
I still don't own a cashmere sweater, but the blue one at left from adam+eve is quite beautiful- I love the row of buttons on the sleeve...
