Usually I do posts about beauty products that you use on your face or body. Today I’m doing something a little different. Still has to do with beauty only it’s about making you look and feel beautiful without makeup. Ah got your attention didn’t I? What am I talking about? I am talking about a scarf! A scarf that feels and looks like it was created from cashmere.
But get this, it’s not cashmere! It’s a scarf made with a fiber that is 20% finer than cashmere and in fact its often mistaken for cashmere. Its called Cashmink ® which is an exclusive acrylic that V. FRASS created based in Germany. The company itself is over 130 years old still run by the descendants of V. FRASS! Not something that often happens! A scarf that will keep your neck warm and hang making the rest of what you are wearing look amazing.
They are easy to care for, machine wash on gentle in cold water.
Now I have own a cashmere sweater. I know what true cashmere feels on the skin. Its silk, soft, touchable, you want to wear it all the time. They are expensive, can be hard to take care of, and if you do not take care of the properly they can lose their shape. Cashmere comes from goats and there are some who might have reactions to their fur used or do not want to wear animal hair.
The Cashmink ® scarf is light enough to be used any time of the year, will dress up any outfit you maybe be wearing that day, as well as they can be given as gifts to guys. I know this because when I asked my son if he would use it if I bought him one, I got yes if it was in a basic one color. The one I have is two colors.
From their soon to be available I guess e-commerce I translated from German into English about what Cashmink ® is thanks to Google Translate.
“Supernatural soft, warm, of course – Cashmink ® is the result of years of experience and highly technical, patented manufacturing and finishing processes. A special feature synthetic material that surpasses any natural fibers in softness, warmth and comfort. Is there anything finer than cashmere? Yes there is. Cashmink ® is finer than all the fibers in the wild, even 20% finer than cashmere fibers. And you can feel. Incomparable softness, thermal insulation for optimum body climate. In short: Cashmink ® is easy to cuddle up and feels good.
Gone are the days of skin irritating materials Cashmink ® is absolutely skin friendly, hypoallergenic and water resistant. This was also confirmed by the Hohenstein Institute. The fineness of the material ensures a more comfortable wear, even on sensitive skin.
Thanks to innovative production techniques, it is possible to produce Cashmink ® products in various designs and colors.
