Are Cashmere Socks Worth It?
Cashmere Socks are pricey but if you’re looking for luxurious there’s really no better natural fibre out there.
You’ll get warm feet that feel silky smooth and like you’re walking on air.
100% cashmere socks are not designed to be worn with hard shoes such as dress shoes or boots. (I have included a silk cashmere mix for daily wear above).
They should only be worn with comfy slippers, soft loafers or moccasins.
What Is Cashmere?
Cashmere is made from the wool of the cashmere goat.
In order to protect themselves against the cold temperatures in their Himalayan natural habitat, evolution has led them to develop an extremely fine, soft and dense under layer of wool. This helps keep them warm in extreme climates.
Can You Wash Cashmere Socks? Top Tips
The wool from a cashmere goat is a special, high quality fibre and needs extra special care. You should follow the instructions from the manufacturer.
- Do not machine wash even on a delicate wash. Why? The agitation of a washing drum will cause cashmere fibres to bulk, tangle and felt. Not good!
- Do not dry clean. As well as agitating as above, dry cleaning will remove the natural conditioners within the cashmere fibres. The end result removes the softness of cashmere, leaving you wish a harsh and brittle sock.
- Always use a non-biological hand washing or specialist cashmere washing liquid.
- You should always wash similar colours together.
- Never use any type of bleach or stain removal activators as these will extensively damage the cashmere fibres.
- You should not soak your socks for longer than 5 minutes.
- Avoid rubbing and scrubbing your cashmere socks. This agitation will damage the fibres as mentioned above.
- Rinse well in warm water.
- Do not wring out your socks. Simply gently squeeze out excess water.
