Give me linen, cotton, shetland and lambswool over cashmere, thank you very much.
Cashmere is nice when mixed with another fabric (say cotton) to add some warmth but leave the end result lightweight and comfortable. I think I own like 2 items 100% cashmere and they're a scarf and overcoat (from Paul Stuart, yeah I know) that I enjoy wearing in winter. I'm not sure I'll ever get a sweater but I might, it's just that everytime I'm looking at stuff like Avon Celli, RLPL or whatever I end up purchasing something more interesting from designers.
