What is Cashmere?
After hubby feel asleep, I just had to look it up.
I must know why I have never seen or felt Cashmere.
Hubby and I had a roaring convo about this, I will put it at the end of this post.
We concluded that it had to come from sheep.
First I must remember to tell hubby...it is not from a sheep, it is the down of a goat.
Hmm, interesting! Not really, but heck I didn't know that!
Here is the reason, I have never seen or felt Cashmere...
This one pair of "Pure Cashmere" socks cost $240!
The estimated worldly amount each year for "Pure Cashmere" is only 6,500 tons. A big rig with a box trailer can carry just over 2 tons. That breaks down to just 3 trailers full for the whole world!! Wow, I am blown away by this! No wonder it is so expensive.
Grant it, there are lower grades of Cashmere.
Supposedly in the range of affordable.
PPPleasssse, I say!
No way in my lifetime am I going to pay $20 for ONE pair of socks!!
Here is our convo...
I believe you all know the commercial.
The famous girl is talking to Santa and his Ho Ho Ho slips out.
At the very end she tells him she likes Cashmere Socks.
I turn to hubby and ask...
M..Have your ever seen or felt Cashmere socks?
H..He looks at me in this odd..have you been dipping in the cooking sherry kind of face, with an instant burst of laughter and shaking his head!
Through his laughter, he replies..No! Why?
By now, I am laughing too.
M..Me neither! What is Cashmere?
H...Still LHAO, replies with...
I wouldn't know Cashmere, if it bit me on the ass!!
We are both rolling in laughter now!
M..Where does it come from?
H..Well, Cashmere is a place. So I guess it comes from there.
M..Okay, but from what type of animal?
H..If I knew that, then I would know when cashmere was about to bite me on the ass! LOL!
I had to stop the conversation, my sides were hurting from laughing too much!
