THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CASHMERE SHAWLS

A two-ply yarn is obtained by doubling the layer buy twisting two threads of yarn together, a three-ply by tripling it, etc. Less plies gives a lighter, finer quality of shawl and more plies will make it warmer and more resilient. In general, two-ply yarn is considered quite popular as the structure is still fine, yet a bit more durable than single-ply.
SILK BLENDED SHAWLS
Cashmere-silk blended shawls are also quite popular. The standard proportion is 70% cashmere pashmina and 30% silk. The warmth and softness of the cashmere combined with silk, gives a denser, stronger, shinier shawl with an elegant luster to it. The silk blends are a bit heavier and less warm than the pure cashmere, but more durable and lustrous.
