Tuesday Quick Tip: Cashmere

2.19.2013 WRITTEN BY Ellie T+P Blog Central, Tuesday Tips

Fashion Factoid: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) mandates retailers spell out the fiber content, so if the tag says it’s a blend — or if there’s no tag at all —step away from the garment if real cashmere is what you’re looking for.
