Features: Cashmere with a historic luxury pedigree, specially constructed for strength and resistance to pilling
Joshua Ellis, a historic mill in Yorkshire, England, has been making the world’s best cashmere since 1767, or 9 years before America officially became a country. Their pursuit of quality, along with their commitment to the handed-down expertise of generations of local craftspeople, is a rare business strategy in a globalized economy. But the results are undeniable, and this scarf material highlights why this is the case. The cashmere fibers are carefully sourced for durability as well as softness, and woven into fabric using a mix of high-tech and traditional techniques. The scarves’ surface is then brushed, cropped short, pressed and finished to prevent the kind of pilling that typically develops due to contact with men’s beards and stubble.
