These versatile cashmere scarves can be worn as many ways as you can imagine, and are the perfect accessory for layering on cold evenings. Cashmere is made from the finest, softest part of a goat's undercoat. Not only is it a delicate, much sought-after fabric with a uniquely soft feel against your skin, it's also up to eight times more insulating than standard wool.
These cashmere scarves are handmade with great care on traditional looms — one more reason this luxurious material never goes out of style. They're timeless accessories that make great gifts.
Most importantly, they also come with a poignant, empowering story that you can feel good about:
Our 100% cashmere scarves are handmade in Nepal by local residents who are blind, deaf, or otherwise disabled. Nepalese society has discriminated against the handicapped, leaving them little or no opportunities for work. Weaving gives these women and men a sense of independence and self-esteem, and your purchase gives their families some much-needed financial support that's very hard to come by in these communities.
Along with providing help to dedicated Nepalese craftspeople with few other options, your purchase also helps support Ocean Conservancy: working to bring people, science and policy together with a mission to counter the many threats to ocean health and sustainability. From protecting vital, vulnerable ecosystems through legislation, to enforcing accountability among leaders, Ocean Conservancy seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
