SO, sadly, after all that time spent on researching cashmere, I overlooked my allergy to animals. I’m allergic to goats. I forgot that as a child my parents were super apprehensive about letting me go to petting zoos, and I guess I also forgot how my mom would shy away dressing me in wool. Thankfully I’m not as allergic to wool as I used to be, but cashmere is definitely a no-go for me.
My body is iiitchy. Arms, shoulders, back, tummy :( I’m thankful that it was an inexpensive lesson learned, but cruuuushed that I can’t wear this sweater anymore. It was so soft!
When my body gets back to normal, I’m going to risk it and try using it as a layering piece. Maybe the separation will make things a little bit better. Fingers crossed.
That said, I’m back down to 2/5 Allowance Items since I don’t think it’s fair when an item isn’t 100% enjoyable.
