As April approaches, we all get excited to welcome summer, rightfully so. Stores brighten up their windows with floral dresses in cotton & linens. We start pack away our woollies and make room for our spring/summer favourites. All this excitement till we realise, we live in England, a country shy of summer.
Apartment buildings turn off their central heating, and you find yourself digging through packed away cashmere sweaters & blankets to crawl under and portable heaters make their place in corners of your home to avoid your hands, feet and nose from changing body temperature.
When we do experience our few days of summer which rarely average 25 degrees, excited folks slip into summer dresses & flip flops to bask in the sun, only to reach for their favourite cardigan or hoody as the sun sets. And, how many times have you over confidently refused to take that extra layer only to have goose bumps and chattering teeth post 6pm. Holiday makers returning from the sweltering heat, sun kissed , full of vitamin D and dressed in shorts quickly realise the air-conditioning on the plane is preparing them for the weather in England.
Having experienced all of the above, we realised how important Cashmere is as a summer staple. Whether your summer consists of a city break, sailing in the Mediterranean or a relaxing beach holiday, we have put together a range of modern cashmere staples in various weights to squeeze into your hand carry for that unexpected chill.
Cashmere is the fine under fleece from a special type of goat. These fibres are grown under the rough outer hair that protects the goats against the long and bitter cold winters of the Himalayas, Iran, Mongolia and other Central Asian republics where temperatures can drop to -50 degree celsius. Raw cashmere fibres are collected during the spring months so the goats have the summer months to grow back their fleece to ensure they are warm during the winter. What we love most is that the fibres are collected by a manual combing process which, unlike the shearing process, is totally harmless to the animal.
Our supply chain partners are leading manufacturers of cashmere garments and accessories to some of the world’s premium and luxury brands. Their heritage combined with state of the art technology is truly a new way forward in garment design and production.
In order to be sustainable and competitive they are fully vertical i.e. they spin and dye their own yarn, as well as manufacture the finished garment. At the heart of production lies the expertise of the workers, whose skills have been passed through generations. From the farmers who farm and care for the cashmere goats on their grasslands; the technicians who spin and dye the yarn using the latest technology and raw materials; to the craftsmen who make and hand finish the garments to ensure each and every one of our designs is executed to the highest standard.
It is due to the hard work and dedication of these teams that help us to create our beautiful cashmere garments whilst remaining mindful of how the creation of our designs affect the environment.Consequently, the products tell our story of constantly striving to remain gentle, not only to the wearer, but also to the environment.
It’s easy to get deterred when the care labels reads “dry clean only”, but hand washing a cashmere sweater will actually keep it softer over time !
Here are our steps for caring for your luxurious knit:
Step 1: Fill a tub or bucket with lukewarm water (never hot, as it will potentially shrink/felt the garment).
Step 2: Use a natural baby shampoo or mild detergent and a clean towel.
Step 3: Dilute the detergent in the bucket or tub of water and submerge the cashmere for couple of minute. You can swish the garment around little bit but don’t twist or wring. Once it has been properly soaped, rinse the garment in clean water and transfer to a towel.
Step 4: press the garment between the towel to remove excess water, while still avoiding any twisting or wringing.
Step 5(optional): leave the garment to dry on the flat to maintain its shape. It may take a day or two to dry.
With these simple steps and a little extra patience and time, you will end up saving on your dry cleaning bill while also maintaining the quality of your cashmere pieces!
