Cashmere gloves will keep your fingers warm right to the tips, without being so chunky as to make everything inconvenient. That’s the practical benefit. Cashmere gloves also feel incredibly soft and luxurious.
Cashmere comes from the fleece of the cashmere goat, found in Inner Mongolia, China, Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Afghanistan and the earliest documented usage dates back to the 14th century. It takes a single goat one year to produce enough cashmere for a scarf.
