Mine is battery-operated, made by Conair. It works sort of like an electric beard shaver. I looked at Joann’s website, they still have it in-store, but I think it’s more expensive now, looks to be $25. However, if you have what I call “investment clothing”, it’s worth it.

TSE is a great brand for cashmere.

I store all my cashmere (and woolen) items in huge zip lock bags as the moths in Texas are horrible.

What kind of zip-loc bags? Are you talking about plastic bags? I've been told that any kind of wool needs to breathe. I don't know why, though, but there's a reason that the protective containers for woolens are made to be breathable. I can sympathize with your choice, though, if you're using plastic zip-loc bags; I've noticed that some moths can be very aggressive, and eat their way into the breathable containers.

I swear I have 4 cashmere sweaters I purchased from Nordstrom 15+ years ago and they still look perfect (and I wear them a lot). Nordstrom’s cashmere must have gone downhill...
