What makes Queen of Cashmere sweaters, pillows, blankets and scarves so special (besides from the monogram, of course)? Letís just say that all cashmere is not created equal.
Queen of Cashmere does not choose just any cashmere yarn for their collections but instead start with the finest cashmere yarn from one of the top mills in Britain, a family owned business since 1766. The mill sources only the best fibers, and spins a cashmere yarn whose softness and clarity of color is unparalleled.
Each of these sweaters are made by an individual artisan using old-world hand intarsia, a time-honored Scottish tradition, with each artisan patiently spending many hours crafting each piece on vintage machines that are run completely by the human hand. The work is meticulous. The craftsmanship of these monogram sweaters simply cannot be replicated by automatic machines. Hand-finishers then spend an additional hour-and-a-half completing the 40 steps that make up the finishing process.
Hand-sewing is what makes these sweaters so special
