- Comparison cashmere
- Trusted sources
Check the label
Check the label, which should read 100 percent cashmere. Pass by blankets with anything less for superior quality.
Buy a blanket with at least two-ply yarn instead of a single ply. It will be warmer, resist pilling, and last longer.
Touch lots of different cashmere. Those with the best quality fibers will be the softest and have little or no pilling. Avoid cashmere that feels fuzzy, stiff, or scratchy.
Stretch the fabric out to see if it snaps back quickly, a sign of quality.
Purchase from trusted sources
Purchase blankets from labels that specialize in cashmere or large department stores, which test for quality. Then you can rest easy with your comfy new blanket.
