Cashmere features in everyone’s dream list when it comes to fabrics we want in our closet. Whether you like luxury or practical wearability, cashmere scores above any other alternative. But its steep price tag means that buyers can rarely afford it. Cashmere blend offers a viable alternative. Here are a few reasons why you should stock cashmere blend:
Cheaper than cashmere
Cashmere is considered a luxury product in part because of its steep price tag. A quality cashmere sweater can be more expensive than three-four good quality wool sweaters combined. This is perhaps the biggest reason to stock cashmere blend. It can be less than half the price of the fabric. Since cashmere is counted among the most expensive fabrics in the world, the discount you can offer your buyers is significant.
Still superior to wool
The cut in the price tag means that you do get a product that is not as superior as pure cashmere. But it is still better than wool. The reason is simple mathematics and logic! Cashmere is usually blended with wool. So, we have all the qualities of wool, only enhanced by the cashmere in the blend. It is softer, lighter and warmer than almost all other types of wool.
The truth is that cashmere production is simply not very sustainable. This is a very specific type of wool that comes from China and Mongolia. It’s a highly prized wool that is always in high demand, which can rarely be met by the supply. This is the main reason for its steep price tag. Cashmere blends allow wholesalers to use this limited quantity in a more economic and sustainable manner. There are fewer chances of stock shortages.
