Today I’m giving away this pale blue pashmina – not cashmere. I think I’ve had this for about 15 years. It pre-dates my trip to India where I bought myself a beautiful real one (or more than one). You can’t tell by the colour but it’s a pale sky blue, it’s pretty but I have a lot of scarves and I don’t wear this anymore, and haven’t in a long time.
When I was in India, a merchant told me that you should be able to pull your pashmina through your ring and it should never wrinkle. These are the two tests you must do before you buy to determine the quality of the cashmere. Good to know. I miss India and must return. I didn’t make it to Kashmir nor to the south around Kerala. It’s good to have a reason to go back.
It’s going in the New Circles box.
