Do you know the difference between headwear and hats? Headwear
is coverings for the head, such as hats, caps, and scarves. A hat
is a "fitted" headwear design. Scarves, shawls, bandanas, etc., are
types of headwear but not actually hats. Fine quality headwear can
be made from cashmere yarns or fabrics.
Cashmere wool, usually simply known as cashmere, is a fiber obtained
from cashmere goats and other types of goat. Common usage defines the fiber
as wool but is finer and softer, giving its characteristics as compared
to sheep's wool. Some say it is hair, but as seen below, cashmere requires
the removal of hair from the wool.
Cashmere wool has great insulation properties which makes it an ideal
option for ladies headwear. Cashmere is usually woven into two-ply
yarn. This form of yarn has better characteristics – it lasts longer, it
is more resistant to different weather conditions etc. However, since it
includes two strands and requires more work in order to be produced two-ply
yarn in cashmere products means higher price.
Cashmere wool is obtained with combing of the lower hair (the lower layer
of hair) from special goats that provide cashmere wool. The Cashmere goat
originates from India and Pakistan, although in the ancient times it could
be found in the neighboring countries like China and even in Mongolia. Today,
the Cashmere goat is bred in many different countries around the globe.
Cashmere scarves & wraps are a fantastic method to keep your
head warm in cold climates.
