While visiting the Burberry online shop I discovered a fun new section called the “Burberry Scarf Bar” where you can browse through different styles for the entire family for girls, boys, women, and men. Reading through this section I learned everything I ever wanted to know about this gorgeous Burberry Heritage fashion icon. Burberry scarfs are a true luxury item to last a lifetime, which helps to explain the price tag.
The crafting of your scarf begins with raw cashmere arriving at the mills. The softest, highest quality cashmere is the foundation of the iconic Burberry scarf. Hair is taken from the goat, with each producing enough cashmere to weave one scarf. Cashmere’s quality is defined by the length and diameter of its fibers; rigorous testing carried out on site using a traditional hand-combing method ensures it is of a high standard.
Cashmere for Burberry Lightweight scarf slowly being fed through a loom at the Burberry mill in Scotland.
According to the Burberry website, the cashmere scarves are made at respected 200-year-old mills in the towns of Ayr and Elgin in the Scottish Countryside by skilled craftsmen using expert methods passed down through generations. Using 30 different steps, the scarf is woven on traditional looms. The fabric is washed in local spring water and carefully brushed with teasels for a super-soft finish.
