If it says pure, then the label should also state that it is made of 100% cashmere. The 100% cashmere garment is thinner, warmer and will grow softer over time. Cashmere is blended with many fabrics like nylon, spandex, silk. For the garment to have a cashmere feel and look, the blended fabric should not be more than 12%.
