Cashmere Cotton


In our cashmere cotton collection, you will find the luxury version of two iconic styles that are best considered “activewear” of a bygone era - the Breton Stripe sweater first worn by French naval forces in the 19th century, and the collegiate sweatshirt, adopted by college American footballers since the 1920s. By making these in Scotland using a  cashmere cotton yarn with a generous amount of cashmere at 47%, the result are heirloom garments that have the supreme softness of cashmere, whilst retaining the sporty resilience of cotton. The presence of cotton also makes these pieces breezier on the skin compared to our other cashmere and wool 12 gauge garments, making these perfect for transitional or warmer weather.
