Cashmere. Soft as a whisper
In this surreal, time out of time, have you noticed how spring continues without breaking step and the short days of winter become more difficult to imagine?
Even in this era of isolation, the world is opening up a fresh palette of colour to us, fluttering and bobbing with an excited promise of warmer, longer days.
While there’s no colourist quite like nature, Scotland’s Brora offers a plethora of gorgeous soft and gentle colours to wear – and styles to sink into which can transport us to lands unreachable at present: the loose cashmere gauzy jumper In Lake is reminiscent of the illustrious Riviera; a cropped jumper in Olive calls to mind shady woodland glades and fossil – luminous morning mist.
So many evocative colours, Sea Holly, Spice, Willow, Rose, Sand & Skye that all take their inspiration from nature.
So how about a classic cashmere cardigan in Emerald as your go-to garment from bedroom-to-garden-to-kitchen-to-bedroom again? Or a jumper in Carbon or Swan to take the chill of the evening air as you go about the garden inspecting new buds.
Brora is a member of the Sustainable Fibre Alliance. All of our cashmere is made at one of the oldest border mills in Scotland. This mill is committed to securing goat herders’ livelihoods, restoring grasslands and ensuring the wellbeing of animals. By purchasing Brora, you will also be helping to preserve a wonderful and tradition craft that goes back millennia.
As Van Gogh said:
“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day.” Indeed, evenings may be cool but need not lack colour.
