Affordable cashmere wasn’t something that made it on my shopping list to purchase the year I visited Hong Kong.
That changed quickly as I wandered through the various laneways and districts of Hong Kong Island. I stumbled across a shop with some stunningly beautiful colors and a variety of clothing pieces made from Cashmere. Each piece was beautiful and soft, one, in particular, caught my eye.
My initial thoughts turned to articles and magazines I’d read, how expensive cashmere was and mainly enjoyed by the rich the famous and Royals (think Kate Middleton and Meghan Markel). Imagine my surprise when I discovered how reasonably priced each garment was!
Immediately I was drawn to a jumper, but it was the piece of cashmere that had a few buttons and buttonholes down each side that had peaked my interest.
If you’ve ever shopped in Asia you’ll understand the efficiency of the salespeople there. Very quickly the shop attendant slid the piece of cashmere off its hanger and onto me and proceeded to show me all the different ways I could wear it. “We call it a mini cape or 5 Way Cashmere Poncho,” she explained. Once I felt how soft it was against my skin, without any hesitation, I bought it.
I also pictured the many times I’d use it as it was so versatile, lightweight, yet thick enough to be cozy and warm and I could take it anywhere. In my handbag, when I traveled, chilly cinemas, restaurants, on a breezy summer’s evening, or simply sitting at home curling up with a good book, practically anywhere and all year round!
How A Piece Of Cashmere Saved The Night
One of the main reasons I bought the cashmere travel wrap was to use on long-haul flights. When I packed to travel to Chicago it was the first item that made it into my handbag. Perfect for the 13-hour flight to L.A. and a further 3 1/2 hours to O’Hare airport in Chicago. On that occasion, I wore it as a travel wrap loosely draped over my shoulders. You could easily use your cashmere travel wrap as a travel blanket too.
As traveling and packing light was my new mantra, and my stay was a quick turnaround of 4 days, I was determined to fly to Chicago with just a carry-on. I planned each day carefully, laid out my clothes for each day and each function, or so I thought.
My packing skills and planning were perfect, my selection on the ground wasn’t. Somehow, (probably jet lag!) I managed to mix up the shirt I was to wear to Saturday night’s dinner as I’d worn it on a previous night. All I had clean was a long sleeved T-Shirt with Adidas blazoned across the front. Hardly appropriate for dinner in a fine dining restaurant!
Thank goodness I had my affordable cashmere travel wrap with me, it really saved the night! It worked beautifully with my pants and boots plus it covered up the logo on the front.
Did I mention the reason I was in Chicago was to attend a Mastermind Meeting with my Mentor and Colleagues? When discussions turned to my business the following day, my affordable cashmere once again made the spotlight. The encouragement I received from all the ladies in the room was enough to turn my mission to track down the manufacturer of the Affordable Cashmere and bring it to you! I know you’ll love it just as much as I do.

Ladies often ask how I can keep the price SO LOW as they’ve seen basic cashmere travel wraps in department stores often double or triple the price! They wonder about the quality, but I assure them it’s 100% cashmere and is at least the same and in many cases a better quality, plus it’s so versatile. It’s simple really, I don’t have the overheads the department stores have, rent, wages, electricity, etc, so I can keep the cost down which is a win for you!
