A Cashmere V-Neck Sweater is about as crucial a staple to a gentleman's wardrobe as a navy suit or a white dress shirt. Peter Millar's Cashmere v-neck sweaters are a classic for any season. Their ever-popular sweater keeps every gentleman feeling warm, relaxed, and well dressed. A smart choice for any man's wardrobe, the two-ply twelve gauge sweaters are packed with quality details such as double ribbed knit cuffs and hems to ensure durability and longevity. The fit is casual - perfect to be worn under a sport coat or on it's own. Peter Millar stocks cashmere sweaters in 16 colors year-round so you're sure to find just the hue to match your mood.
Cashmere is named after Kashmir, the mountainous areas of Pakistan and India. A cashmere goat lives in cold, windy climate and develops a hard, protective fleece to withstand the extremes. In the Spring, the soft silky undercoat is combed to collect the fine under down. A cashmere fiber is 1/3 the size of a human hair. It takes four years for a single goat to produce enough cashmere to make one men's sweater.
When the cashmere is collected, it goes through a sorting process. The fibers are divided into extra short, short, medium, and long batches. Peter Millar is very unique in that we use a 36mm staple to spin our yarn, which is considered a long fiber. Special care is needed when using this quality of yarn; it must be spun correctly and have enough packed into the sweater to ensure a quality product. Control of the yarn tension and weight are essential so the sweater will not be limp and flimsy. Our size large in men's weighs over 300 grams. We have taken measures to ensure all sweaters are to a proper weight scale to allow for year round enjoyment.
How to Care for Cashmere
Our care label suggests hand washing and to lay flat or dry clean. Hand washing is better for a knitted cashmere sweater in the long run as chemicals used in dry cleaning can be hard on cashmere fibers. In addition; hand washing will actually make the sweater softer over time.
