There are a number of materials that Aurélien values. For example, you can take Cashwool as an example that is used. This wool comes from Italian sheep and is extremely soft. The wool yarn is extremely thin, which ensures an ultimate fine result. You will notice this in the clothing that is made of it. Having high quality ensures a longer life of the garment.

It is possible, of course, but if the quality of your clothing is good, you will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
Having a cashmere sweater is probably the best thing you can have. The fibers are extremely soft which makes it very nice to wear. The reason why cashmere is so precious is because only the sheep’s undercoat is used. Shearing this wool can only be done once a year. Then there are a lot of other sheep breeds from which wool is used to make sweaters. One of the most common sheep breeds in the world is the Merino sheep. The wool of this sheep is very soft and of high quality. Other sheep breeds often have wool that is a bit firmer and can be used for other purposes. There is also alpaca wool, this type of wool is hypoallergenic and can be worn by people who are allergic to wool. Because the alpaca lives in an environment where large temperature differences occur, the coat is suitable for many temperatures.
Why should you pay attention to washing the sweaters? It is best to hand wash your wool sweaters once in a while. So preferably not in the washing machine.
