A scarf is sold as 100% cashmere, but is only Rs. 500.
What makes it different than a Rs. 5000 scarf?
If you are buying Cashmere Scarves online then you should know about the real Cashmere. A Rs.500 scarf is not a cashmere scarf. Indeed people are duped everyday who are not aware or experienced in the feeling and nature of real cashmere fabric. This happens a lot in small shops and instant buy shops where they want to make a quick sale and not much time is spent with the customer. The person buying simply has to remember that raw cashmere yarn is bought at approximately Rs. 18000 per kilo, and then additional production costs, finishing costs, so how can a pure cashmere scarf which weighs around 100 gms be for a selling price of Rs. 500?
For the laymen, it can only come by experience of feeling different fabrics. It’s actually not that hard once you can recognize by hand the feeling of cotton, polyester, wool and silk.
Further a reputed shop will always sell authentic items after rigorous testing and quality checks in their supply chain, it is a matter of reputation, as well as liability to sell wrongly labeled items, or cheating the customer.
If you’re actually willing you can also have the fabric tested yourself at reputed fabric testing laboratories (such as SGS, Intertek, TUV Rheinland, Bureau Veritas) but keep in mind you Rs. 5000 scarf will be destroyed in the process of testing and on top you will also have to pay high testing charges! That is how rigorous the testing is.
