What is a cashmere sweater?

The types of sweaters in autumn and winter are very rich. In addition to cashmere sweater, there are clothing, camel velvet, yakon, rabbit hair, etc. as the main raw materials and other raw materials. There are even “imitation cashmere” and “cashmere cashmere”. It makes people feel like looking at flowers in the fog.


FZ/T 73009-2021 The “Sluttering Needle Factory” stipulates that this standard is applicable to refined and coarse cashmere conecles and 3%and more cashmere cashmere and more cashmere. From the scope of the standard application, only when the cashmere content is not less than 30%, can we be evaluated with the standards of cashmere and fabrics.


In other words, buying a cashmere sweater is not enough to look at the name of the product. You also need to pay special attention to the fiber content on the label. In addition to pure cashmere products, cashmere blended products must be ≥30%. Cashmere sweater.

Cashmere sweater common sense

Because the price of cashmere sweaters is generally higher, consumers have more confusion and doubts when buying. At this time, the following misunderstandings should be avoided:


The ball was due to the rubbing of the textiles, and the fiber head was exposed to the yarn to form a hair phenomenon.

The textiles of any raw material will have different degrees of ball. Because wool is naturally rolled, it is easier to get the ball than cashmere, but the tightness of the yarn itself, the structure of the fabric, and even the method of wearing the ball are far more serious than the fiber raw materials. Therefore, cashmere sweaters will also start, and you cannot use whether the ball is used to presume whether the product raw material is cashmere.

Some products will be promoted that they are “cashmere” knitwear, and the price is only half or even one -tenth of the cashmere sweater.

In fact, there is no “cashmere cashmere” fiber name in my country’s national standards.

Although “cashmere” and “cotton wool” are all “sheep” generations, they are far away in essence. What we usually call cashmere is the velvet fiber on goats, and no matter what the sheep’s body is, it can only be called cotton wool (or wool).

Micro structure of cashmere and wool


To choose a high -quality cashmere sweater, consumers can make a preliminary judgment on the quality of cashmere sweaters through the three information on the product logo, combined with the feel and odor of the hand.

When buying cashmere knitted fabrics, softness can be directly felt by touch.

The cashmere sweater feels smooth and glutinous, and has no “tightening” on the body. The feel of the wool sweater is plump and thick, and the silk sweater feels smooth. However, it should be noted that some wool sweater feels slippery because the sweater is added to add more soft agents when it is treated later.

# smell it #

After obtaining cashmere fibers from the velvet goat, it is necessary to pass a series of spinning, weaving, and dyeing process steps such as miscellaneous, split, strip, gauze, and weaving.

In the processing session, sometimes in order to facilitate weaving or convenient consumers, the manufacturing process will add lubricating or anti -ball and anti -static additives in the manufacturing process. If you add too much, you will leave the odor on the clothes. Some additives are not good for health and environmental protection, and some are prone to colors dirty and growing worms during the storage process.

FZ/T73009-2021 “Matsusels and Society” requires relevant products to evaluate its dichloromethane soluble substances. If the content is too high, it means that there are more oil agents added during processing.

Although this indicator requires a professional laboratory to obtain it, consumers can initially identify inferior products by smelling odor, because products with many oil agents often remain in the odor -like odor.

# Look at the ingredient indicator #


The ingredient is the most important indicator of cashmere sweater. The cashmere content directly determines the cost of a cashmere sweater. GB/T 29862—2013 The “Identification of Textile Fiber content” clearly states that due to the variation of cashmere fibers, cashmere phenomenon will appear “suspected wool”. The cashmere content is 95%or above, and the products with suspected wool ≤5%can be marked as “100%cashmere”, “pure cashmere” or “whole cashmere”. In other words, the amount of suspected wool in pure cashmere products must be ≤5%.

# Look at the safety category #

Some consumers buy cashmere sweaters in order to pursue personal comfort, while some consumers are used to putting cashmere sweater (pants) outside the autumn clothes and autumn trousers. GB 18401-2010 “National Textile Products Basic Safety Technical Specifications” divided the textiles into three types according to the final use: infant textile products, textile products that directly contact the skin, and textile products that are not directly exposed to the skin. C means.

Consumers can choose the corresponding level of products according to their own wearing habits. If you need to wear it, you should choose a product with a safe category as B, so that safety and comfort can be guaranteed.

# Look at quality level #

The product grades stipulated in FZ/T73009-2021 “Slutter Shin Weaving Products” can be divided into three types: excellent products, first -class products, and qualified products.


In addition to some technical requirements higher than the first -class product, excellent products also specifically proposed that the average fineness of cashmere fibers should be ≤15.5 μm for pure cashmere products. This indicator requires a decisive role in improving the feel of cashmere sweaters.

Therefore, consumers with certain requirements for quality, when choosing cashmere products, must pay attention to the quality level of the product logo. The cashmere sweater of the excellent products is better than other levels of products in terms of fineness, the degree of ball, and the amount of oil content. Therefore, its feel, comfort and quality of the dresses, wearing comfort and quality are better than other products.
