So, why should you invest? “Cashmere is renowned for its unparalleled softness and luxurious feel against the skin,” says expert Erin Fortin, director of apparel design at Garnet Hill. “As a hypoallergenic material, it surpasses regular wool in insulation while remaining lightweight and naturally resistant to wrinkles, making it an excellent choice when traveling.” While cashmere tends to boast a high price tag, adding a cashmere sweater or two to your winter wardrobe is totally worth it since the material is “versatile and breathable enough to be worn year-round,” says Veronica Tan, senior director of apparel and accessories at Quince. We’re already on board, and after taking a peek at these top picks, you certainly won’t need much more convincing.
