Did you know that www.mypashmina.co.uk accepts bitcoin? And that you get a 20% discount right

So what is bitcoin? To put it out easy - its a digital currency that is not controlled by the state. It is the modern way of paying. You dont need banks for it. You are your own bank. And its easy to use once you have had a look into how to start using it. As we see it, the increased use of bitcoin will put the power with the people instead of the banks and will make the world a better place. We at the Mypashmina, want to help promote bitcoin, so therefore we offer a 20% discount for people that choose this payment option. (for a limited time)

Autumn is here - time to be cosy in amazingly soft cashmere scarves again

Handmade 180x45 cm cashmere scarf from www.mypashmina.co.uk

Autumn is here for sure now. Gone are those lovely summer days. But not to worry - autumn is colourful and cosy! Its now its time to meet up with your friends over a warm cup of tea, and take beautiful walks in parks with leaves coloured in beautiful orangey shades.

Our favourite scarf for the autumn is this one - a completely hand made cashmere scarf - each one is unique - made in different colours. Its so warm and soft. It doesnt feel heavy or itch. Cashmere is a very thin fibre - only about 20 microns - so it shouldnt. Cashmere also lasts for year. So to buy a cashmere scarf from www.mypashmina.co.uk is an investment for the next decade or so.

Pashminas for summer

Which is the best pashmina for summer? We think the ring shawl is, because a ring shawl is a very fine pashmina suitable for warmer weather. It is single ply and amazingly soft, warm and light. It looks beautiful and feels so nice, perfect for cooler summer evenings. We have them in two sizes and many colours. Order ring shawls on www.mypashmina.co.uk for next day delivery.

Bohemian style comes from the 1700s when people wanted a minimalist lifestyle but is now associated with expressing individuality. Usually its characterized by earthy-tones with splashes of color, patterns, flowers and excessive accessories. Boho chic style allows individuals to express their desire to break away from social norms and live unconventionally. As a fan of the Bohemian style of course we have of course some influences for the boho style in our range of Cashmere knitwear and accessories too.

Spring is in the air. I just love it when the sun and warmth come out after a long time of cold and darkness. People are smiling again! Its amazing to see how the mood shifts and how much easier and happy life becomes. But dont be too quick with dressing too light just because you feel like the weather is too good for jackets. Not the time to get colds! Its not that warm...quite yet. Be smart and wear a light weight cashmere jumper so you get the best out of two worlds! Here are 5 ideas in 100% lovely soft and warm Cashmere all of which are available on our website www.mypashmina.co.uk for free next day delivery:

1. Ladies classic v-neck - £70. Always a safe card! Looks good and feels great!

2. Ladies zip up hoody - £95. A little bit more sporty and practical - great for spring evenings!

3. Ladies long line cardigan - £110. I love this model. 

4. Ladies round neck cardigan - £70. Will always be a classic. 

5. Basketweave cashmere blanket - £335.

I really wished I had one with me yesterday when we barbequed and drank mead with friends in the garden until late in the evening. We have a couple of these in our old home (we are travelling now) They are so useful! Dont be put off by the price tag - these are worth their weight in cashmere.

Each side (or facet) of the 21 sides of each crystal bounce colour and light around wherever you go and our pashminas have 200 crystals on each one.

With some glue, a jewel setter, some crystals and a steady hand, you can bling up all sorts of things. Flip flops, gloves, hats, shoes, uniforms and watches, the list is endless.

To complete your evening outfit, why not go for a crystal studded walking cane? You can of course crystalize your own cane with a nice collar of crystals or you can purchase a ready made one. Choose from fully covered crystal walking sticks or sticks with only a sprinkle of crystals on the handle or around the neck. You are certain to get many comments!

People have been decorating their clothes and accessories with cut glass crystals since the 19th century so what are you waiting for?

Cashmere and silk quality testing using a laboratory for Mypashmina

From time to time we use a laboratory to test the quality of our products to ensure that the quality is consistent and their is nothing dodgy going on at any step of the supply chain. We have been using the same supply chain for years so we are confident, but it is good to check every now and then.

The laboratory we use, uses a technique called projection microscopy to identify which fibres are present and in which quantities. They take 1000 fibres at random, photograph them on a projection microscope and count how many have the characteristics of the types of fibres in their database. In our case it was purely cashmere and silk as expected.

Our most recent test was for an Angelweave cashmere shawl - (Only £79.50 at www.mypashmina.co.uk ). These are made with handspun cashmere weft and a pure silk warp. As they are hand-spun, the width of the cashmere yarn varies throughout the item so it is difficult to be precise with the fibre content. On our website, we say the product contains 90% cashmere and 10% silk. This is a pretty good estimate.

We sent one off to SGS laboratories to have it tested. The test cost £408 ,  so it's not cheap to have a proper test that identifies both the exact fibre contect and the quality of the fibres in the yarn.

The result of the test is below - 92.6% Cashmere, and 7.4% Silk  and 0% anything else.

If you want to find out more about the inspection methods for checking the fibre content of cashmere items, read this report:

Also, if you are buying cashmere elsewhere - shock horror - you can always ask to see any cashmere testing certificates. A good supplier will have a recent one to hand for the concerned customer.
