What are the Benefits of Cashmere for Babies?

6 min read | 08 May 2023

As parents, we’re always on the lookout for quality products that will keep our babies comfortable and secure.


When it comes to choosing fabrics, cashmere reins supreme, renowned globally for its unparalleled luxury, softness and warmth.

This article explores the features and benefits of cashmere for babies and why it's the ideal choice to keep your little one cosy and content. 

What is cashmere?

Cashmere is a type of wool made from the soft undercoat of cashmere (or Kashmir) goats, typically found in the high plateaus of Mongolia, China, and India. This luxurious fabric is lightweight, soft, and incredibly warm – in fact, it’s reported to be up to eight times warmer than other sheep's wool.

With its oh-so-soft and silky-smooth touch, cashmere is synonymous with the kind of luxury and indulgence that your little bundle of joy deserves.

What are the benefits of cashmere wool?

Besides its buttery softness and luxurious feel, cashmere is packed with other features we love, including:

  • It provides superior insulation, keeping your baby warm in winter and cool in summer

  • It is breathable and moisture-wicking, which helps to prevent overheating

  • It is naturally hypoallergenic and gentle on sensitive skin, reducing the risk of irritation

  • It is lightweight and incredibly soft, providing unmatched comfort

  • It is naturally odour resistant

Despite its delicate nature, cashmere is also durable. With proper care and attention, cashmere clothing and accessories can maintain their quality and continue to provide unrivalled comfort for your baby for many years.

Is cashmere safe for babies?

Yes, cashmere is generally considered safe for babies. It is a gentle, natural fibre that is less likely to irritate delicate baby skin than synthetic materials.

You can use cashmere clothing and bedding all year round, though it's the cooler months when this magic fabric really shines. With its moisture-wicking and hypoallergenic properties, cashmere ensures that your little adventurer stays snug and comfy without becoming itchy or clammy, and who doesn’t want that? 

Is cashmere sustainable?

The growing popularity of cashmere has highlighted the importance of sustainability and ethical practices within the industry. As a result, there is a renewed focus on responsible sourcing and production methods that positively impact the environment and communities involved in cashmere production.

While shopping for cashmere products, keep an eye out for items that are responsibly manufactured and bear industry certifications, like:

Sustainable Fibre Alliance

The Sustainable Fibre Alliance (SFA) is a non-profit standard holding and membership organisation on a mission to minimise the environmental impact of cashmere while safeguarding farmers and their animals.

The Good Cashmere Standard

The Good Cashmere Standard® (GCS) is an independent standard for sustainable cashmere, developed by the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF), that aims to improve the welfare of cashmere goats, the working conditions of farmers and to protect the environment.
