If you have a crush on cashmere then quickly grab a hot coffee from St. Ambrose and head over to SHI Cashmere. The Madison Avenue boutique is hosting a very rare sale where their top quality Scottish cashmeres and linens will be discounted 30% to 70% off. The sale is slated to start on Saturday but friends and family
For the uninitiated, SHI is a British brand that is best known for their fine traditional knits and linens that come in a variety of contemporary designs, ranging from body-con to more relaxed silhouettes. The cult insider brand started in 1980, out of an abandoned Scottish farmhouse and has grown into what is known as one of the finest privately owned Scottish cashmere mills in the world. Our spies tell us the mill only uses the best yarns such as Loro Piana and Todd & Duncan. That’s the same yarn Chanel uses for all there knits.
The sale will include discounts on the current season collection and an arrangement of samples and prototypes that have been shipped directly from the factory in Scotland. Two ply cashmere turtlenecks, in an assortment of colors will be priced at $125 from $850, fine gage tunics that are perfect for spring will be $95 from $650 and a hand intarsia moon tunic is $860 from $1650. Discounts hot off the loom are almost more heart warming than coffee.
