Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Am I a bad person if I went to local SA at 2pm Friday and was PO'd they'd closed so early I couldn't get one more rip through the racks? They canceled school and everything Friday...but there was, like 2" of snow on the ground when school would have let out. Babies. Heh.
Spoo, you have a cutie there!
My little girl standing next to 27" drift up to her elbows, that's a yardstick she's holding, she wanted to see how deep the snow was.
Pros, help me out. I have this jacket, Sartoria Italiana, whatever. Not great, not the worst.
Labels -- note the drycleaning or whatever makes the formerly white tag indecipherable:
How can you tell from the markings or the feel if it's cashmere or cashmere blend? I vaguely remember this coming up before and the answer was "you can't tell for sure," but is there any "tell"?
That snow is incredible!
Re: cashmere vs blend, I know when there is some cashmere involved, but every once in a while I'm surprised to find that it's 10% or less. By feel alone, I can usually tell whether it's wool, camelhair, cashmere or a poly blend. However, I don't know of any definite test for it for listing/sales purposes. You can do a burn test, which is fairly accurate (unless you're dealing with a blend of less than 5% of a synthetic). I posted a link awhile ago to a table that gave you a good idea of the fabric makeup after a burn test...I'll see if I can find it.
