A cashmere scarf has the power to make an impact on an otherwise plain look. Whether worn around the neck, waist or head, a scarf – plain or with designed, is in itself a statement. Some people wear it as a fashion item while for others it is for religious reasons. Either way, a cashmere scarf must be on every woman’s closet for when the need to wear one arises.
Cashmere scarves are made of a fiber which is obtained from cashmere and other types of goats as well. This fabric is strong, light, and soft with fine texture, thus makes garments made from cashmere excellent for insulation. This makes it very popular during the cold months and is part of most every winter line of fashion houses big and small.
