There are so many benefits to wearing cashmere knitwear besides just the fabulous look and feel of the fabric. Cashmere knitwear keep you warm on the coldest of days while still being a lightweight sweater. Heavy wool sweaters are warm, but they are also bulky. They take up a lot of room in your drawer. Cashmere knitwear fold nicely, and can also be stored in the closet with very little space needed.
