Cozy in Cashmere: Sustainable Styles to Elevate Your Look (…and Keep Yourself Warm Too!)

Originalmente publicado:
06/12/2021

Cashmere elevates your look and performance on the course and off the course. Learn more about this luxurious, unique fiber and how it takes your style game to new heights.  

What is Cashmere?

At PXG our cashmere apparel is sustainably produced from the super-soft undercoat of the cashmere goat found in the Himalayas. Supply is very limited, and, due to the delicate nature of the fibers, this luxurious wool must be treated with great care throughout the harvesting process.

A Luxurious Fiber that Stands the Test of Time

 With new innovations in performance fabrics plentiful, many don’t realize there are natural fibers that have been around for centuries, like cashmere, that offer distinct performance functions.

Timeless and versatile, cashmere garments offer a large range of benefits from warmth to durability. Often regarded as a luxury fabric, cashmere pieces tend to run on the pricier side compared to other fabrics, but, as you’ll learn below, often as the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.”  

Benefits of Cashmere

Warmth Without Weight

Unlike synthetics which can leave you hot and sweaty, cashmere, a natural fiber, allows the body to breath. This helps to regulate body temperature – keeping you warm in cold conditions and cool in warmer conditions.

Durable

High-quality cashmere lasts for years and when properly cared for can last a lifetime. Cashmere garments hold their shape overtime allowing you to enjoy its high quality and style for years to come.

Exceptionally Soft

One of the softest yarns out there, cashmere’s delicate fibers are silky to the touch. High-quality cashmere feels like butter against your bare skin.

Hypoallergenic

Because cashmere does not contain lanolin, it is a phenomenal fabric choice for those who suffer from asthma or allergies.

Versatile

Not only can PXG’s cashmere styles be worn for almost any occasion, they also are ideal for wearing on the golf course. The soft touch and clean designs won’t interfere with range of motion and will keep your body temperature just right - perfect for transitional weather and cooler summer evenings. Plus, the premium comfort lets you focus on your game.

Shape Resilient & Wrinkle Free

High-quality cashmere does not shrink when washed correctly and does in fact retain its shape much better than wool. Cashmere doesn’t wrinkle, making it an ideal travel companion - pack in your suitcase and wear on arrival!  

Good for the Environment

Not all cashmere is created equally. At PXG our cashmere is sustainability produced with the Good Cashmere Standard® meaning the factory adheres to the Five Freedoms as defined by the Farm Animal Welfare Council - no animal be subjected to hunger, thirst, discomfort, pain, injury, or disease. The standard is regularly reviewed based on findings from the audit process as well as scientific information.

Not to mention, investing in higher-quality pieces cuts down on water and consumption simply because it is made to last.

How to Care for Cashmere Properly

Do Not Machine Wash

Cashmere should be dry cleaned or hand washed with COLD water. Be sure to use mild detergent and a limited amount. The fibers are fragile when wet and washing machines can put too much stress on the garments causing them to stretch or lose their shape.

Do Not Use Fabric Softener

Cashmere becomes softer overtime. Using chemical softeners to speed up this process will damage the cashmere and decreases its lifespan.

Do Not Put Cashmere in a Dryer

Let air dry to best preserve its fibers.

Don’t Wash Too Often

Since cashmere is breathable, if you wear it throughout the day without any spills or stains, you can hang it up and wear it again. It will remain fresh for another outfit without needing additional washing.
