There are always times when you flip through a magazine or you walk through a store and you see a blanket, shawl, gloves, hat, even a sweater that’s rich in color, and oh la la soft in texture and you know its cashmere.

Cashmere implies a certain kind of lifestyle and it’s sheer luxury is undeniable.  However perhaps you haven’t heard about the finest cashmere in the world– BEGG SCOTLAND!!

More than just the Scottish wear cashmere– it’s worn all over the globe and was seen in the Fall 2006 LAFW at the DRESSED TO KILT EVENT kicking off LAFW.

You are  sure that I must have the wrong picture here — because she can’t be wearing cashmere– except perhaps the gloves. However you would be wrong because the ENTIRE OUTFIT she is wearing is made of BEGG Scotland Cashmere!!! YES!!!!!!!

Cashmere so fine that you can pull it through a tiny ring — and it’s woven and refined as only the Scottish can do.

No one else produces cashmere this fine and of such quality that even the luxe clothing and accessories houses (the ones with the $5 K handbags and the $500 dollar scarves) have BEGG produce their cashmere under a private label.
