We believe this more than anything at 525 America, but we know you can’t design the best sweater without the highest quality yarns. We pride ourselves on selecting the finest to deliver the luxurious look and feel that has become synonymous with 525 America.
Quality cotton sweaters are our claim to fame and our focus since 525 America started in 1983. We always start with the best cottons, but then challenge ourselves every season to find new ways to manipulate this core fiber. We’ve created a variety of new cotton techniques including advanced dying processes and printing directly on the yarns pre-production. We also experiment with yarn widths and gauges ultimately driving innovation while designing the seasonless, easy care cotton styles that surprise and delight our customers each collection.
Why 525 America’s cotton is so special: Our cotton is soft, absorbent and breathable. This makes cotton the ultimate all year long choice: warm and cozy in the Winter and soft and airy in the Summer. Plus, cotton is durable making it an effortless style choice that goes with your every look and mood.
Discover 525 America’s premium cashmere. Only the finest Inner Mongolian cashmere is chosen by our in-house knit experts to become the coziest and most luxurious sweaters you’ll ever wrap up in.

Our sweaters are designed with more cashmere fibers for superior knitting tension so each style is warmer, plusher, wears better and retains its shape.
Why 525 America’s cashmere is so special: We hand-select only the finest cashmere for eight times the softness, warmth and resilience than regular wool. The result is a sumptuous and cozy sweater that will retain its shape and last a lifetime
