    Default wool or cashmere?

    Been looking into cashmere sweaters lately. I like it's feel and warmth, but caring for it takes effort. Which is warmer between the two?

    They're both warm but one is softer and gets you more cuddles.

    For me - cashmere.

    Two-ply cashmere is generally warmer (and more comfortable)...but is also more expensive. I generally try for cashmere sweaters, but will definitely be happy with merino wool.

    Speaking of "warmth", anyone here ever mess with Alpaca based clothing? From what I understand wool is from sheep (?), cashmere is from goats? There should be a fancy name for Alpaca based clothing.

    I read Uniqlo sells cashmere for less than $100.

    I have a few alpaca sweaters which I like. They're soft, but not as soft as cashmere.

    Even in Brick and Mortar stores at this time of year you can find cashmere for under $100.

    Is it the kind of "cashmere" that comes from China and seems to have an awful lots of grey rabbit hair in it?
