There is nothing quite as luxurious as the feel of a cashmere scarf in the cooler months. This incredibly soft, 100% cashmere scarf is woven and made in the North of England at mills that can trace their history back over 250 years. Luxuriously soft to the touch, and with the classic Prince of Wales Check pattern, this scarf is incredibly versatile and works well either over a suit jacket, or worn casually over a jumper.
The Prince of Wales Check is a classic staple of British menswear. It has been successful over the years because, while the basic pattern is timeless, it can be modernised with slight reorientations of the pattern, or in this case, with a cobalt window pane. More details on the classic Prince of Wales Check below.

Our cashmere scarves are manufactured in Yorkshire, in mills that can trace their history back over 250 years. This is why you can be sure you're getting the finest quality cashmere scarf available. Cashmere is a natural fibre, and it takes true craftsmanship to deliver an exceptional product. We achieve this by working with only the finest raw materials, and blending textile knowledge passed down over hundreds of years with modern manufacturing techniques. The end result is scarf that feels luxurious when worn while being made to last.
Prince of Wales check is the immortal cloth. It maintains and endures, and as we know today was devised by the Prince of Wales, known to posterity as Edward VII. Leap forward along the bloodline by a generation or two and perceptions begin to shift. Perhaps it was his reputation as being the most finely dressed individual of the era, but for reasons that we’ll credit squarely to the zeitgeist, those that had the privilege to know Edward’s grandson, Edward VIII, noted he too had a love of an altered Urquhart check. He popularised the pattern so much that history has decided to associate the pattern with grandson, not grandfather. You can read the full history of the pattern here: The History Behind the Prince of Wales Check.
Cashmere is a fine wool fibre coming from the Cashmere goat. The Himalayas and Mongolia are most famous for their goats, which produce wool of a fine and soft nature, protecting the animals from the harsh conditions of the winter season. Cashmere wool is known most famously for its softness, warmth, strength, and durability. The fineness of the fibre ensures the softness of the finished textile. Hair from normal goats will have a diameter of 36 microns, compared to the 19 microns of most types of cashmere. The materials with the finest fibres will be soft to the touch and feel extremely lightweight. Cashmere is of course also very warm and able to keep heat in through its isothermal properties. Its warmth is dependent on the strength of the raw fibres.
Because of the above factors, cashmere is known for being a luxurious and expensive product. Historically, it has always been a high priced item, and gained reputation in the West through its luxurious feel and softness appealing to the upper class women in Britain during the 17th and 18th centuries, and has since become staple winter product in the luxury industry.
