The broken-herringbone pattern of this men's cashmere pullover sweater highlights the quality of our pure double-ply cashmere yarn while avoiding the straight lines of a conventional herringbone pattern, a trick we gleaned from a 1920s design book. Cashmere goats are so ornery that centuries ago, Mongolian villagers gathered the wild animals' soft underfur from the scraggly bushes that surrounded their high hillside villages rather than risk physical harm. The best cashmere still comes from the region, where only slightly more domesticated goats roam the high valleys. Imported.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lightweight Cashmere Sweater I love this sweater - In terms style, fit, comfort and warmth it is by some way the best of the lighter weight cashmere jumpers that I have ever bought. If it had been available in other colors I would be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Unusual Design Credit to Orvis for a truly different design for a men's sweater. Usually, unless you are willing to buy designers like Missoni, your choices are the same old same old, but this sweater looks stylish and not run of the mill.

Cashmere: the fabric of kings

The ancient fabric of choice for a royal family

This men's cashmere sweater is a cut above the rest.Once again, we have Asia to thank for a prized textile. Cashmere is named for the Kashmir goats that inhabit the Himalayas and the mountainous regions of Central Asia that surround the Gobi desert. The harsh, extreme climate of the high desert plateaus are just right for producing the downy undercoat needed to make cashmere yarn. Cashmere was known to the Western world in ancient Roman times and it was the fabric of choice for Tibet’s royal family for centuries. Today, about 60% of the world’s cashmere, or approximately 3,000 tons, comes from Tibet and China.

A gift from the Gobi

The coat of a Kashmir goat consists of a coarse outer coat, sometimes referred to as guard hair, and the fine downy undercoat, which is used to make cashmere yarn. The goats grow this ultra-soft, insulating inner layer for protection from the wild drops in temperature at night in the mountains and plateaus. This superior fiber is collected annually, during the spring molting season, when the animals naturally shed their winter wool. It is traditionally removed with a comb and separated by hand. Each goat produces a mere four to six ounces of downy fiber a year.

The timeless appeal of cashmere

As a knit, cashmere is lightweight and exceptionally warm. The yarn has a soft, silky finish and can be easily dyed. Like silk, cashmere’s exotic origins and sublime softness are timelessly appealing. Orvis is proud to bring you these handsome cashmere sweaters. They are a great value, combining the ultimate in luxury with winter warmth and practicality – a wonderful gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
