My Pet Hate: is TUESDAY, everything that has ever gone wrong in my life has happened on a TUESDAY! I hate it, it's now my day off so that i don't have to face the world! Don't make me have to suffer TUESDAY by asking me about it!!! I also dislike girls who drink pints, smoke and generally act like men!!

Why oh why do cashmere garments ALWAYS have those stupid bags over them?

Depends who's paying the price - in this case, it's the hideously exploited garment workers, the undernourished Chinese goats (yep that's goat cashmere, not sheep, we all know how inferior even good goat cashmere is, & trust me this is NOT good goat cashmere.) & the farmers faced with desertification after their rush for the cashmere cash crop has over-grazed their land to the point of collapse, with knock-on negative effects for subsistence farmers, other cash crops & wildlife.
The garment covers were used in the past to protect the cashmere from pulls, now it's essential to stop the easy piling (bobbling) by which one can identify third-rate cashmere.

Good cashmere is worth the price; with care it will last for decades; the stuff flooding into Asda/WalMart, TK Maxx, Costco, etc, is ethical garbage and a crap product.

I agree with hildegard wholeheartedly and am glad to see people thinking about the effects of our consumer choices. If I'm not mistaken, and I realize that this isn't the point, but all cashmere comes from goats. It's the fleece that is found under the guard hairs.
