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 Neck Warmer
The ingenious cashmere neck warmer or cravat scarf, is essentially a short version of a scarf which can be worn outside a shirt or sweater or tucked neatly in to keep your neck snug and warm. Less bulky than a scarf they are popular in Italy and have increasingly found favour with our customers.
The Cashmere Scarf
There is no doubt that this cold weather accessory is an easy way to add warmth wherever you are. Stylish and practical the cashmere scarf is soft and light and comfortable around the neck and stays perfectly in place.
Luxuriously soft and warm cashmere socks, our customers say, are addictive like walking on air. Once you have worn them it is hard to go back to anything else. So whether you are working from home, or walking outdoors your feet will be wonderfully war. This little luxury makes a thoughtful and apt gift.
