Cashmere Travel Sets & Cashmere Travel Blankets | 2015 Reviews

Updated on June 24, 2015

==> See the Best Cashmere Travel Sets Online

I just love cashmere wool it so soft and comfortable. When you need to get a blanket for travel, it is hard to beat the comfort of a cashmere travel blanket. It is soft and warm, lightweight and thin, making it easy fold up while traveling.

A Cashmere Travel Set Will Keep You Warm & Cozy Anywhere

The unique properties of cashmere make it an excellent material for warm lightweight products. Items made from it are usually considered luxury items, since it is quite expensive to produce.

This special wool is especially suited for making blankets, throws, shawls, and sweaters. It is a hard-wearing material that lasts a long time with proper care. For the best results, dry-cleaning is recommended.

With all the budgetary cuts in the services airlines provide, passengers, can no longer expect to be supplied with an airplane blanket. And even when you do get one, you might not want to use it, as it might not meet your hygienic standards. The travel blanket has become an essential travel accessory for any flight longer than a couple of hours.

There are many different ones you can choose from. There are so many colors, mostly in solids, but quite a few patterns as well. Whatever your taste, you should have no trouble finding a blanket that suits you.

You can either get a travel set that includes other items or a just the blanket by itself.

In this lens, I will highlight some of the most beautiful cashmere travel blankets currently available online.

Popular 100% Cashmere Travel Blankets

Of all travel blankets, pure cashmere ones are probably the most expensive, but there are very good reasons for the expense. Getting the raw material is a tedious manual process, and only a little per goat is used. This extra soft wool feels luxurious and makes some of the most durable, softest airplane blankets around.

If you want a matched set, a blanket with a matching pillow is an excellent option. But, if you already have a favorite travel pillow, then you just need to get a travel blanket or throw instead.

What is Cashmere Wool?

Where Does it Come From?

The name Cashmere comes from the name of the Kashmir goat, whose fur or wool is used to make the fiber. Other names include pashmina or pashm. Most comes from Mongolia, Tibet, China, India, Afghanistan, and Iran though recently, New Zealand, Australia, and Russia have joined in.

The best comes from the throat and underbelly of goats, where their wool is softer because the fibers are longer. The shorter fibers found in the legs and backs are coarser, heavier and less expensive. As the softest wools are those with longer fibers, Tibet and Mongolia produce the best cashmere because the cold, harsh climates of those places encourage the growth of longer wool. There is a long tradition in Asia where cashmere has been associated with nobility and power. Because of its high moisture content, it has excellent insulating properties that change with the amount of humidity in the air, making it comfortable in all climates (even in quite warm places).

Considering the labor intensive and the fact that only part of the goat’s hair is used to make cashmere, any items made from it can never be cheap. If you do see a cheap items claiming to be pure 100% pashmina, or containing a significant percentage, it is probably too good to be true.

How to Buy a Cashmere Blanket

Cashmere is supremely soft, a wonderful gift to baby someone or yourself. But it is easy to get a sub-par product. The video below shows you how to make sure you get 100% pure.

Cashmere Throw Blanket

Perfect for use in cars, living rooms, air travel, etc.

To expand your choice, you can get a throw blanket, instead of a travel blanket, they tend to run both a bit longer and wider.

At almost the same size as a full-sized blanket, you can use them as a spare at your destination. As cashmere blankets are not bulky, they pack up quite compactly, this may be an option.

There is a much wider range of colors for throws than airplane blankets. They also tend to be larger, so if you need the extra length or width this might be the better choice.
