About the Manufacture
The sweaters are woven and manufactured to our specifications by a 4th generation company in the heart of the Hawick region, Scotland. Cashmere and Geelong yarns come mainly from Scottish spinners, whose stringent and high quality levels ensure a beautiful and consistent yarn to knit with.
There is quite a bit of handwork that goes into making a cashmere sweater: rib cuffs and skirts are linked by hand to the front, back and sleeves panels; milling (washing) requires a millman’s experienced feel to obtain the right hand; sweaters are cut by hand; all components (neck trims, buttons, pockets, zips, ribbon..) are stitched or linked on by hand.
