Introducing Saphyr Pure Cashmere
It is that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, the nights colder, and we’re spending more time cozying up indoors. We’ve already started digging out our heavier sweaters and draping our beds with extra blankets. This year, as we transition our homes into late fall and winter, we are especially excited about a touch of cozy luxury that we’ve added to our living rooms and bedrooms: the softest cashmere throws you can imagine!
We just love wrapping up in this pure cashmere throw while lounging on the sofa watching TV or lying in bed reading a book. In addition to its incredibly soft feel, the special thing about cashmere is how it keeps you warm and cozy without being bulky. It’s significantly warmer than sheep’s wool, yet is both softer and lighter. To understand how cashmere has such special natural qualities, let’s take a look at how it’s made.
The making of cashmere
The best cashmere is made from the undercoat of goats in Mongolia, where they live at high altitudes in an climate that is extremely cold for much of the year. In the winter months, Mongolian goats grow an inner coat made of long, fine fibers that enable them to withstand the harsh cold.
The fiber for Saphyr’s cashmere throws are collected from the goats in the springtime by meticulously hand combing them, as opposed to shearing, which can be very stressful for the goats as it leaves them exposed to the chilly mountain air. Hand combing is a tradition dating back thousands of years, and while it takes more time and effort than shearing, it is kinder to the animals and captures the longer, finer fibers, resulting in softer and higher quality cashmere.
Saphyr Pure Cashmere
Saphyr is excited to introduce pure cashmere throws. Our throws are made of 100% Mongolian cashmere and are manufactured from fiber to finished product in a single factory in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia. Our throws have an irresistibly soft and luxurious feel, and have been knitted with a classic and timeless cable pattern that will look beautiful for many years to come.
Choose your favorite out of four soothing colors—Cozy Cream, Sand Dune Brown, Sky Blue and Sunset Pink—and cozy up on the couch or surprise someone special with the gift of Saphyr pure cashmere for the holidays.
