Glen Prince's Cashmere
About our Cashmere
Only the purest and finest natural fibres are used to make our luxury Cashmere scarves and stoles. Our Cashmere is sourced from Australia and Mongolia.
Finest Cashmere, woven Scotland
The fibres are lovingly cultivated to ensure they maintain their fantastic quality, beauty and durability. These fibres are taken to the oldest running Mill in Scotland where our scarves and stoles are made, using over 200 years of expertise.
Why is Cashmere so soft and warm?
It is one of the finest, most luxurious natural fibres in the World. Known for its extreme softness, warmth and quality. The finest fibres are taken not from the long hairs you see on the goats but from their underbelly.
The extreme fluctuation in temperature throughout the year, rising to above 40°C in summer and dropping to below -40°C in winter, is what helps the goats grow their beautiful fleece. The Cashmere fibres have a natural crimp, this helps them to interlock during manufacturing processes and allow the fibres to be spun into very fine, luxurious fabrics. There is a special raising process carried out on our cashmere scarves and stoles. The dried heads of the teasel plant are placed between metal bars, which are fixed around a revolving drum. The teasel heads become flexible when wet and the hooked ends gently tease out and align the cashmere fibres to produce our luxurious ripple finish to the Cashmere. If you care for your cashmere it will last much longer than other fabrics - even wool. At Glen Prince, we have a fantastic collection of cashmere scarves and stoles ranging from classic tartans to unique Glen Prince designs.
