A Cashmere scarf is the ultimate in warmth and luxury and worth every penny
I have chosen to make my cashmere scarves in fabrics blended with either fine Australian merino wool or modal. The Australian climate does not really warrant 100% cashmere and these delightful blends keep the luxurious essence of cashmere whilst keeping the scarf light, soft, and perfect for Aussie winters. I personally feel the cold and my cashmere scarves become a "uniform" in the winter even though our winters really are quite mild.
Cashmere has been manufactured in Mongolia, Nepal and Kashmir for thousands of years from the hair of the local goats. As the temperatures across the Himalayas can drop to 30 degrees below, they have an incredibly thick, warm coat. While a sheep can produce approx 3 kilos of wool each year, a cashmere goat will only give around 200 grams. So, yes, it is rare, very special and costly to produce. It is super soft, super light and divine to wear.
My wearable art cashmere scarves are a statement piece. They are not at all bulky and will easily fold up and fit in a coat pocket or handbag. You will not regret adding one or two to your winter scarf collection.
