A treat of Tartan

The newest act of finery delivers in cashmere

The latest offering from the Balmoral’s Scone & Crombie is a gift to the senses: a cashmere butler service where guests are treated to a shopping experience tailor-made to their delight. Cashmere, made from the goat’s natural fibres, possesses the gentle feeling of an embrace; its rarity and benefits make it one of the most luxurious materials in the world.

Tickling one’s sense of touch and charming one’s visual panache, there is no doubt that cashmere is imbued in the closet of the brilliant and the extravagant. Presiding over Balmoral’s newest service is Hawico’s Derek Umpherston, who carried two decades of cashmere expertise under his belt. Guests are able to select their desired goods matched with the best colours of the season, thanks to Umpherston’s bespoke ‘paint box’ which highlights the most popular shades.

The items hail from the local cashmere factories in the town of Hawick – all marked with true Scottish craftsmanship – then sent to the guest’s suit in gorgeously wrapped packages, capping off this indulging experience. roccofortehotels.com ◼
