Elegant Pashmina Scarves And Wraps

Updated on December 12, 2014

Pashmina - A Perfect Gift For The One You Love

Pashmina scarves, wraps and shawls are soft and lightweight, warm and elegant. Pure 100% pashmina has a gauzy texture with an open weave, so it is often blended with silk to give it an elegant sheen. The pashmina/silk blend is soft and light weight, and drapes beautifully. A high quality pashmina has a lovely feel and really keeps in the warmth and makes a perfect anniversary or birthday gift.

What is pashmina?

Where does it come from?
Pashmina is actually a fine cashmere wool, from the soft undercoat of the changthangi or pashmina goat. The changthangi produces this luscious coat because it lives at cold, high altitudes in the Himalayan mountains. Pashmina accessories come in all colors to suit personality and style.

How To Tie And Wear A Pashmina

It is surprising how many different ways you can wear something so simple. I wasn't confident about my scarf-tying skills, but learned a lot from this video. Have a look yourself to see some inspired and elegant ways to tie your scarves.

Tying Pashminas

scarves, wraps, shawls

Pashmina is available in different sizes which can be used as scarves, wraps or shawls. This opens up a wide range of possibilities for wearing, including tying to make a bolero, vest or jacket.

Moroccan Blue Pashmina & Silk Shawl

This high quality Pashmina Shawl is available in Moroccan Blue. It is made of 70% Pashmina and 30% Silk, making it very soft to touch, and nicely warm on cold evenings.

Pashmina at very reasonable prices

I recently visited Turkey, where I saw many stores selling pashmina at very reasonable prices. If, however, you can't go to Turkey, eBay also have a great range.
