A sumptuous treat for yourself or a luxurious gift for a loved one, cashmere gloves will be a snap to find with these tips.
Step 1: Get the real thing
Get gloves made of 100 percent cashmere, written on the label, instead of a blend for the highest quality.
Step 2: Find 2-ply
Find gloves with at least two-ply yarn instead of a single ply for gloves that will be warmer, stronger, and resist pilling.
Step 3: Perform touch test
Touch the material before purchasing. The gloves should feel extremely soft and smooth.
Avoid cashmere that feels fuzzy, stiff, or scratchy.
Step 4: Perform stretch test
Stretch the fabric to test the loft. Quality fibers will snap back into shape, while lesser-quality knits will stretch out quickly.
Step 5: Buy from trusted sources
Buy from a large department store that employs quality control testing, or from a trusted label that specializes in cashmere.
