1.Wool’s Scales arranged closer and thicker than cashmere’s. Cashmere fiber scales are more small, smooth, intermediate filaments with a layer of air make it light weight, smooth waxy feel.
2.Wool is smaller than cashmere, in the curly rate, cashmere’s fiber has the natural ability of the larger crimp recovery rates, appropriate processing of feel full, soft and elastic knitwear, wear comfortable and natural, and there are good reduction characteristics, especially the performance does not shrink after washing, good shape retention and so on. Due to high cashmere naturally curly, tightly arranged in spinning, weaving, cohesion is good, so warm and good, is 1.5 to 2 times the wool.
3.For the rigidity, cashmere fiber is better than wool, that means the cashmere scarf is softer than the wool’s.
4.Cashmere’s fineness unevenness is smaller than the wool’s, appearance quality of the cashmere scarf is better than wool scarf.
5.Cashmere fiber has the fineness uniform, the density is smaller than wool, mostly circular cross-section of the rule, and normally the cashmere scarf is lighter than the wool scarf with the same size .
6.Better hygroscopic for cashmere scarf that can be fully absorbed by the dye also won’t fade any more, high moisture regain, relatively large resistance value.
7.But wool scarf’s acid and alkali proof are better than cashmere’s, also smaller than cashmere scarf in case of injury oxidizing and reducing agents.
8.Usually wool scarf’s pilling better than cashmere scarf, but felting shrinkage large.
