Ahhhh… Cashmere!

There are still two full months of winter left here in Baltimore. So if you find yourself getting chilly, wrap yourself in cashmere!  You might have noticed a lot of cashmere in some department stores recently, but it’s not high quality fiber; China is flooding the market with lower quality cashmere. In order to ensure you’re getting the best, you should shop where you know you’ll get the quality you expect. And of course, that’s at Halcyon House!

We have some of the most beautiful cashmere wraps we’ve ever seen and felt. These shawls are featherweight and as soft as a kitten. They’ve been specially woven in a twill weave, and then printed in classic equestrian motifs in the most beautiful colors. Rusts, blues, browns, pinks and greys.

This is a wrap that you can knot around your neck, drape across your shoulders, or tie around your handbag. It’s so versatile, and will soon become one of your favorite pieces. This is a wrap that you will be able to wear year round – even in the summer, as it will keep you warm in some of the over-air conditioned restaurants around here.

If you’d like a cashmere wrap that is a little heavier, Halcyon House has two other options: These are knit, rather than woven as the ones above. They have a fun ribbed ruffle around the edge, and the colors are terrific.  This shawl is a wonderful heavyweight knit in a paisley print. It would be amazing to toss around your shoulders.
