Cashmere is one of the softest natural fibers available. A favorite with upscale, professional women it is often found in high end designer accessories with a classic modern style. Pashmina wraps are particularly sought after.  Those with embroidery and patterns make lovely special occasion wear and can work well with more contemporary or bohemian style wardrobes.

Summer weight cashmere accessories can be mixed with silk, while winter weight are sometimes mixed with other wools.  2-Ply is the most common, although lighter weights work well for warmer weather, and 3-Ply is the ultimate in luxury.

Cashmere cold weather accessories, along with cashmere sweaters,  are particularly popular during the Christmas shopping season as a luxury holiday gift item.  These include lined leather gloves, knit socks, scarves, hats, and sometimes even items such as cashmere sleep robes and slippers.

Internet Shopping Resources for Cashmere Accessories

 

Mainly a seasonal item, most shops only carry cashmere in the fall to winter shopping seasons, with the most available in the run up to Christmas.  Summer weight cashmeres are from time to time used, mainly as blends with other natural fibers such as cotton.   These are often available at boutiques and retailers that feature hand-crafted items from artisans from around the world.  The best of the latter is Novica which is part of National Geographic and emphasizes Fair Trade practices.  QVC is another spot where cashmere is sold all year, often at full 2-ply winter weights.

 

The best fall and winter shopping places for luxury accessories, including items such as cashmere lined leather gloves, wraps,  and scarves are mainly the upscale department stores.  In addition to well known designer names, they often also carry both in-house labels and selections from mills that specialize in fine wools.  Neiman Marcus has the deepest and most luxurious collection, including shawls and capes that are often generously enough proportioned for larger figures.

eBay can be a surprisingly good resource for luxury items such as cashmere, with some well established boutiques stocking brand new, first quality merchandise with a "Buy It Now" feature.  Similarly, Amazon, which is fast becoming one of the largest and most diverse e-commerce sites on the net, carries a large inventory of moderately priced cashmere accessories. Simply type "cashmere" into the search box and drill down from there.

 

Nordstrom Rack is the place to look during the holidays for quality scarves, gloves, hats, and wraps at discount places. Those looking for top shelf designer brands and luxury quality cashmere at bargain price tags will want to stop in at Saks Off Fifth and Last Call.
