Cashmere Beret Using Tahki Donegal Tweed Fine & Shibui Silk Cloud
Our quietly urbane Cashmere Beret is a great topper for men and women alike! The iconic shape and softly swirling decreases are simply timeless. Knit with a fingering-weight tweed and a lace-weight mohair blend, this version of our beret is lightweight, warm, and need we say lofty?
We chose the handsomely flecked Tahki Donegal Tweed Fine, then mellowed the rustic look with glowing, hazy Shibui Silk Cloud. The silk-and-mohair blend brings just the right amount of softness to Donegal Tweed Fine’s homey wool—a winning combo for our Cashmere Beret!
