Cashmere Scarf Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Earth Day Event

My Little Cashmere House has given me this lovely recycled cashmere scarf to review. What could be greener than recycling?

It all started three years ago. Anne discovered how to felt cashmere sweaters. She pulled out all the cashmere sweaters she had in her closet and put together a lovely blanket for her father. Cashmere, being so soft and luxurious, was even better when it was felted. Everyone adored it. 
Anne Ligon and her sister started My little Cashmere House and have had their Etsy shop up for almost two years now.  Anne loves to create things that make people smile and keep them feeling warm. When she isn't scoping out thrift stores for sweater, she is spending time at Lake Tahoe; biking, hiking and kayaking.

This scarf is so unbelievably soft. As they say at My Little Cashmere House "It has to be FELT to be believed" It is very light and comfortable to wear. I am a big fan of wool. I have been using wool as a diaper cover for my baby at night. So, I know the power it has.

Did you know?

Cashmere is one of the best types of wool and it comes from a goat! It is more lightweight than other type of wool and it provides the best insulation.

This scarf was made from re-purposed cashmere wool sweaters. First it is felted, which is quite a process, turning it into a non-woven material. This makes it strong and machine washable. It also makes it even softer! Then each square is cut out and carefully serged together. The stitching on this scarf is beautiful.

What do I ♥ about it?

My favorite feature (besides how incredibly soft it is) is the stitching in contrasting color. Being a sewer myself I know how hard it is to keep the stitches nice and neat. I tend to use matching thread so you can't see my mistakes. I have yet to find a flaw on this scarf. You can tell that it was made with tender love and care.

What would I change?
