Indroduction

Like most women, I have acquired an unquenchable appetite for cashmere. I am a self-educated cashmere connoisseur of sorts. I love everything related to cashmere- especially the end product. But, I don't stop there! I enjoy taking apart cashmere items (mostly sweaters) to learn about how they were constructed, often to recycle them into treasured possessions. I knit and crochet new things from the recycled yarn and create stuffed animals from the fabric itself. My goal with this blog is to pass on my years of knowledge to people like you! I have an embarrassing collection of cashmere totaling over 200 pieces. My collection includes priceless one-of-a-kind treasures, the perfect basic sweater, and more!

I am going to give my opinions on every cashmere brand I am familiar with. I'm talking about hundreds here so we have a lot to get through! I will also show you how to take apart a sweater to salvage the yarn or to create something else out of it. I will give you my opinions on quality, the cashmere market, how to clean and store your collection, and current events related to cashmere production. You will find a bit of everything here.

I would love to answer any questions you may have! If I don't know the answer, I will find out for you so we can learn together!

I am doing a ppt presentation for my marketing of luxury class on Cashmere and the top cashmere brands in the US and Europe.

I have benchmarked a few thanks the link here under but still do not know what are the most fashionable brands for Cashmere thoughout the world.

I am looking into brands such as Eric Bompard but abroad.
Perhapps you could help me out and give me a list of the most trendy cashmere brands on the european and/or american market. I would be much obliged ! :)

Anyhow, your blog is cool and you should keep at it,perhapps a part on the new fashion trends for 2008 linked to cashmere would be interesting.
