Banavata - 80% Bamboo/20% Cashmere


I have just made some new photos of our Banavata pashminas.

These pashminas are 80% bamboo / 20% cashmere ,  they measure 60cm x 190cm,  they weigh 180 grams,  so a slightly heavier fabric than the 70% cashmere pashminas (as you would expect).

They have a diamond weave.

The reason for doing new photos is because these pashminas are dyed with vegetable dyes, so the colours are gorgeous but quite subtle. The previous pictures just were not showing them properly, hopefully the new ones are truer.
The price is £59.50 , and you can buy one at

We have 10 colours in stock.

A customer commented on these as follows...
"I just received my 80% Bamboo 20% Cashmere stole, and I’m amazed at how beautifully soft and incredibly smooth it is. Weightier than your cashmere, drapes exceptionally well, having about 10 or so of your cashmere pashmina's, I am also absolutely delighted with this one too, a bit more of a sheen to the fabric, but only slightly so, I would highly recommend this fibre to others to try"

Thanks for reading

New Pashminas - also for men

These new pashminas are amazingly soft.  I have just photographed them and like most of our products, i have to say they are much better in real life than in the pictures...

The pure cashmere is very warm and they will get even better the more you use them.

They are 100% Cashmere, 2ply, 28 count yarn.  They measure 45x200cm, They have an open end - (no tassels)  We have 5 colours in stock.

Nice and handy comment from a lovely customer!

I though this might be useful to anyone considering buying a ring shawl.

Dear Mypashmina team

I just wanted to write and thank you for my beautiful ring shawl which arrived today.  And for the brilliant service: I received it in under 24 hours without paying for priority delivery!

The shawl feels so luxuriously soft and I love the subtle colour of it.  I've found that "pashminas" vary - even though they all state that they are 70% cashmere/30% silk, some are soft and others feel as harsh as wool.  I have very sensitive skin, can't wear wool and thought I was taking a bit of a chance ordering 100% cashmere but I am so glad I did - this feels gorgeous.

I can see that I will be tempted to order again in future!

With all best wishes

PS if you wanted to know how I found you - I'm very "into" personal colour analysis and I found the link on one of the PCA blogs I read, which happens to be based in Australia.  Colour matching is so important if you've "had your colours done" - I've become slightly obsessional about mine!

We have ring shawls (90x200cm) in stock, and we have just added ring stoles (70x200cm) to our range. The stole size comes with an open fringe and the shawl size comes with tassels -
