Q: How can you tell if Chinese cashmere is real?

I was recently given a cashmere scarf at a dinner ceremony by a client at my job. How can I tell if this scarf is real cashmere or not? Of course, it says "100% real cashmere" on the label, but that doesn't really convince me. Are there any tests I can do to check?

These are some answers among others:

 

  1. Feel the cashmere on your chin as it is most sensitive part of skin. Does it Itch? If it itches, then definitly its not pure cashmere
  2. Make sure Cashmere doesn't shine like silk. As pure cashmere doesn't shine like silk. The products which shine are definitly made by mixing silk with cashmere

Cashmere is wool fiber, so it is organic, if you were to take one thread of it and burn it, it will leave off same smell as to hair, then it will turn to ash same as hair, so maybe you can try with one of your hair first to study it.

If it were made of imitation polymer, of substitute plastic, then it will have the same reaction when burned as to thread 100% polyester, ie it will become a small ball of plastic....here too maybe I suggest to test and see for a better understanding.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
