Since 1851, our Scottish mill has crafted some world’s most renowned cashmere scarves. Finer, softer, and more insulating than sheep wool, this buttery soft piece is made from the coveted fine undercoat of cashmere goats living in the extreme cold weather climate of the Himalayas. Handled with delicate and expert care, the cashmere fibers are scoured in the soft waters of local Scottish rivers and are teaseled with the heads of dried teasel plants; a time-honoured technique which gently teases out the cashmere fibers into their iconic ripple finish.
100% Cashmere. Dry clean only.
One size fits all. Garment fits both children and adults.
Dimensions: 180 x 25cm
With a legacy of over 200 years of tradition and expertise, this scarf was brought from raw fiber to finish at an 18th Century Scottish mill. We are honored to preserve and share with you the heritage and tradition of these master craftswomen and craftsmen.
With some of the industry's highest standards, our makers source their fibers from select cashmere goats in the extreme cold weather climates of Mongolia, China, and Afghanistan where temperatures reach -40 during winter months. When spring arrives the fine cashmere fibers from the underside of the goat's bellies are gathered for these buttery soft scarves.
