It’s a measure of how tightly the item is knitted. The term Gauge refers to the number of stitches and rows per inch. With 12-gauge there are 12 stitches or rows of yarn per inch, so the Cashmere is relatively dense. With 7-gauge the Cashmere has a more open or mesh-like look and is more light-weight than the 12 gauge if the same yarn is used.
