Here we are again in Lockdown finding ourselves confined to our homes over the coming weeks and months. Whether you are working from home, home schooling or just having to stay at home more the cold winter months bring new challenges.
If, as forecast, we are to be visited again by ‘The Beast from the East’ then the challenge to keep warm will be all the greater.
Staying warm inside without the expense of rocketing heating bills is when cashmere comes into its own. Seven times warmer than wool, it is also lighter and therefore more comfortable to wear and wonderfully soft to the touch.
Cashmere snoods and mittens are two of our indoor favourites while cashmere scarves, hats and gloves are perfect winter warmers for your permitted outdoor daily exercise. So why not spoil yourself and wear a little luxury in these trying times
Here are three ways to help beat the cold at home and outdoors.
The Cashmere Wrist Warmer
The ingenious wrist warmer keeps hands cosy warm without losing the dexterity to get on with everyday needs like typing. The clever bit is how the warmth travels to the fingertips, despite them being exposed. This little luxury makes a thoughtful gift.
The Cashmere Snood
Snood, neck warmer or infinity scarf, whatever you prefer to call it, there is no doubt that this cold weather accessory is an easy way to add warmth wherever you are. Chic and practical the cashmere snood is soft and light and comfortable around the neck and stays perfectly in place.
The Cashmere Poncho
Layering if often championed as ‘transition’ dressing for those in between seasons when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. It is also a smart solution for staying warm and snug when working from home and what could be better than a luxurious cashmere poncho to pop over a cosy sweater to double up on layers. Ultra warm, divinely soft and light the cashmere poncho is astylish and practical way to stay warm indoors and out.
