If you find yourself doing some pre-Fall prowling for cashmere in the local thrift store here are a few tips to make sure you spend your money wisely.
- Carefully stretch the body of the sweater to see if it snaps back. Lower quality cashmere won’t snap back in shape.
- The thicker the sweater feels, the more dense the gauge of the knit. This means more cashmere!
- A label that says “Made in Italy” or “Made in Scotland” likely means a better quality item.
