Cashmere is a versatile material that is natural, soft and durable. It's a hollow fiber, much like wool, but it's thinner and lighter, allowing it to equalize body temperature just as it would in its natural environment, ensuring its animals don't overheat in warmer temperatures.
While traditionally worn during the colder winter months, cashmere can also be used as a lightweight and breathable summer fabric, keeping you cool in the heat thanks to cashmere's natural ability to self-regulate in all temperatures.
Similar to merino wool, cashmere is natural and breathable. The fabric is lightweight and breathable, which means the fabric keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. If you want to wear this high-quality wool in the summer, be sure to look for lightweight designs or lightweight cashmere, these garments are usually thinner and lighter to help keep you cool in summer temperatures.
This material is essentially a temperature-regulating material born from the ultra-fine undercoat of the fleece goat, which lives primarily in Inner Mongolia, where seasonal temperature fluctuations are great. These insulating undercoats lie beneath the outer layer that keeps the goat dry and are naturally occurring, so the animal stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
So as the temperatures heat up, layering with cashmere is the perfect solution for those cool summer evenings when the sun goes down and the temperature drops in the mornings and evenings. At the end of summer, drape it over your shoulders or lap in comfort under the stars.
Many stores will sell cashmere items specially designed for summer wear. These pieces are usually lighter in weight and come in summer cuts and colors. Because cashmere is considered a luxury fabric, you can generally find cashmere at higher-end stores.
Cashmere products are sold both in winter and summer in traditional brick-and-mortar stores and online. Look for cashmere sweaters or cardigans that are lightweight or have short sleeves. Bright or muted colors will also be great styles to wear through spring and summer. If you don't want to shell out big bucks for cashmere during the fleeting turn of spring and summer, try finding cashmere blends. These fabrics will have some cashmere wool blended with other natural or synthetic fibers.
