Cashmere Beret Using Shibui Birch and Silk Cloud

Cashmere Beret Using Shibui Birch and Silk Cloud

"Truly splendid."

Our quietly urbane Cashmere Beret is a great topper for men and women alike! The iconic shape and softly swirling decreases are simply timeless. The beret employs a DK-weight yarn (in this version, we used a fingering-weight and a lace-weight held together) knit down to a fingering-weight gauge for a cozy, dense fabric that’s soft even on the smoothest pate.

For a soft, fuzzy beret with lots of chic drape, we combined fingering-weight Shibui Birch with lace-weight Silk Cloud. Birch is a single-ply of extra fine merino with a micron count approaching cashmere. Blended with the lustrous kid mohair and silk of Silk Cloud, it creates a glossy fabric that’s truly splendid!
