A cashmere throw sounds extravagant, but it is lightweight and has a slight texture - which many fibromites report is beneficial in helping them to sleep. And sleep is essential to our well being. Cashmere won't scratch like wool and is far warmer than wool or acrylics. A reasonable substitute is alpaca, which can sometimes be found for less than cashmere.
