What Is Cashmere and Why Do We Love It?

As the temperature drops outside and the leaves begin to fall, we can hardly contain our excitement here at Gigi Brooks HQ. The arrival of 'cashmere season' means we'll soon be wrapping parcels filled with the softest, most luxurious baby clothes and blankets around.

While we love every item in the Gigi Brooks collection, there's something truly wonderful about pieces made from this magnificent material. Cashmere is fine in texture, strong, light, and super soft to the touch. It also happens to provide excellent insulation, roughly three times that of sheep wool, so it's just what your little one needs when there's a chill in the air.

Best For Baby

Cashmere baby clothes are extremely lightweight, comfortable, easy to wear and never bulky. The wool also has some natural stretch, so your little one will always be able to move easily while wearing it.

One of the major benefits of cashmere is its adaptability to temperature due to the high moisture content of the wool. The wool keeps body heat in during cold weather, but in warmer weather it allows the body to maintain a comfortable temperature without overheating.

Luxury To Last A Lifetime

Cashmere is considered the most luxurious of natural fibres. Not only does it feel incredibly snug and lush against the skin, it's also extremely long-lasting. If properly cared for, cashmere blankets and clothing will last a lifetime.

As your child grows, precious heirloom pieces can be passed to siblings and even saved for future generations.
