A Pashmina in The Summer?
Yes! A pashmina is great for summertime. Don't be shy - here is why.
Many think that anything made of cashmere wool is to be worn during the fall, spring and winter, when the weather is cooler. They think that wearing a pashmina in the summer means extra heat and sweat. But a pashmina is great for the summer and many of our customers agree.
First, the Pashmina fabrics don’t absorb sweat like cotton. It actually allows moisture to evaporate so you feel cooler. A cashmere and silk blend is exceptional in this way.
Plus, many of our customers tend to be cold natured. In the heat of the summer, the AC units are on full blast in many offices, restaurants, grocery stores, malls, etc. A basic pashmina in your handbag has you prepared for such situations.
Here's some tips on selecting your perfect pashmina for the summer:
* Select a cashmere pashmina and silk blend. Silk is naturally breathable. This helps keep you comfortable. It is an extra benefit that the little sheen makes it look great!
* Choose a one-ply pashmina, such as our Water Pashmina Stoles. Pashminas can be woven in one ply, two ply, or three ply. This indicates the number of threads used in the yarn. So the greater the ply, the thicker it is. So one ply is sheer and elegant, making it perfect for summer.
* Consider lighter shades. Lighter shades reflect the light so you don’t feel so warm.
* Go smaller with a pashmina scarf. In the summer, a scarf can be a perfect splash of color and comfort.
