KATHMANDU , Feb 18
The shutdown on its sixth consecutive day followed by curfews in different places has worsened the situation in the restive southern plains on Monday.Shortage of daily essential commodities is being experienced with the strike showing no sign of respite

This is a problem for all manufacturers and indeed all people with jobs.

no LPG supply ( how to cook or how to colour the pashmina?
No petrolium supply
no transportation” – how can the pashmina business function under these conditions.

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
