The price is either £16.99 or £27.99 which is excellent value.

Products Labeling Act of 1939 with more precise definitions of cashmere and superfine wool.

This is in the US. But pretty sure the standard will be adopted glbally soon.. The new law will not only protect consumers from deceptive labels, but manufacturers also benefit in having clear guidelines to prevent potential violation or product recall by the Federal Trade Commission. All the cashmere and wool products manufactured on or after 1st January, 2007 must comply with the act.

Cashmere was previously defined simply as “hair or fleece from the genuine Cashmere goat”. In the latest regulation
additional diameter measurements were set: the mean fiber diameter must be less than 19 microns; the coarse hair (exceeding 30 microns) must be less than 3% by weight of the product; and the coefficient variation of diameter has
to be less than 24%.

So for real cashmere , just visit www.mypashmina.co.uk .

Plane crashed on the road we drive home on !

Lucky we went home a bit early yesterday, otherwise Mypashmina.co.uk might be no more, and everyone would have to buy their cashmere and pashminas from somewhere else.

This little plane crashed on the E45 , the main road from Gothenburg in to the north of Sweden at 19:48 yesterday. It hit a car. We had driven passed the exact spot just 30 minutes earlier.

Incidentally, the E45 starts (as the A45) at Bedford in England, and after Harwich , it contines in Denmark and then in Sweden to the very north. How dull is that ?

New – 100count superfine pure cashmere pashmina


Here is some advance notice of a very exciting new product.

It is made form 100count cashmere. Basically the number of count is the number of meters of fibre that weighs 1 gram. So 100count means that 100 meters of cashmere fibre weighs 1 gram. i.e. it is a very thin fine thread indeed.

The usually count for knitwear is 28count, or on fine lightweight knitwear for summer we often use 60count.

Anyway the scarf shown above is made from 100 count. It feels amazing and even has a sheen (it is pure cashmere). And by a clever combination of warps and wefts we have made some lovely colours and subtle effects. These will be available in 5 colour combinations and the price will be approximately £85. – see www.mypashmina.co.uk on 15th March
