CASHMERE COVER UP

Why is it you think we so love the luxurious feel of silk and Cashmere? Perhaps because the feel of Cashmere on our skin is not only silky soft, but it can be worn without having to kill the animals. The Cashmere goat is dual purpose and was discovered in Persia in the 14th century by one Ali El Hamdani. Imagine the cheese one could enjoy form it's milk! What a delight that we do not have to kill these sweet little things to be able to sport their pelts! My goaty coat is a Cashmere and Silk blend from the British label, Precis, and a work of art in my collection-indeed a collectors piece. It takes a special kind of dry cleaner to maintain it's beauty, and one has to be careful where you drop your coat to have it cleaned! It's one of the most versatile items to have in your wardrobe and should be stored with care to protect it from the invasive pincers of moths! I am told that Sunlight soap deters these monstrosities and keep them at bay, so if you have any delicates made of any kind of wool, grate a bar of Sunlight soap and scatter it generously in your closet. A Winter White coat is my "go to" item this season, reviving the classics once more...... How do you wear Winter White and what do you to preserve it from season to season without it being devoured by moths?
