Scarves & Shawls in Cashmere & Wool

The flip side to winter and the colder weather it brings, is the chance to layer up in cosy cashmere and wool, to cover up in a favourite enveloping coat, piling scarves over the top as a finishing touch. And you know, you can never have enough scarves.... Our latest collection includes seasonal colours of burnt orange and russet brown, winter white and mossy green, as well as all the neutrals from grey to cream that we are well known for.

Winter Approaches..

November 05, 2017

Scarves and shawls in fairtrade cashmere are the ultimate in luxurious comfort so...

Each one takes a single tealite candle and we have three sizes available this year, available to buy on our Christmas page, by clicking here.

For us, flowers are an important aspect to the shop and a way of honoring the seasons. We love the thought of bringing the outside in and at the moment our table is laden with berries and hips and coppery leaves.
