Discover the Irresistible Softness of the World’s Finest Cashmere

At L.L.Bean, we hold our standards high and are constantly searching for the best in all our products. We are proud to share that we’ve found a new cashmere supplier who is just as fastidious and committed to quality as we are.


Classic Cashmere Sweaters from L.L.Bean


From incredibly harsh conditions comes the most beautiful cashmere.

Our supplier provides all of its cashmere from Inner Mongolia – a land where brutal winters bring blowing winds and subzero temperatures. Mongolian Kashmir goats grow a hardy underlayer of wool every winter to withstand frequent blizzards and temperatures at times dropping to -40ºC. It’s this very wool that yields the softest cashmere yarns.

When warmer weather returns, the year’s entire cashmere supply is gathered during the two-week combing process. The wool is carefully combed and washed to produce yarns so precious it takes three or four goats to craft a single sweater.

Thanks to these very yarns, our plush, two-ply sweaters are now even lighter and denser. They hold in warmth and feel luxuriously soft. You’ll notice the difference from the moment you put one on, and with so many amazing styles and colors, you’ll see why having one (or two or three) is a luxury worth indulging.
