HOW ARE SCARVES MADE? HOW ARE STOLES MADE?
In this series of posts, we answer the two most asked questions above.
There are approximately 30 different processes involved in transforming fibre into luxurious Glen Prince scarves and stoles. Our cashmere, lambswool and blends are the work of skilled craftswomen and craftsmen using centuries of innovation passed down through multiple generations. The experts take pride in every thread, every twist, every yarn and every stitch, from raw fibre in the wool. It all happens right in the heart of Scotland!
