Perfect pairing: Johnstons of Elgin

Johnstons of Elgin cashmere socks

My unexpected best buys of last year were these Scottish woollens and cashmeres from Johnstons of Elgin.

A bonus perk from visiting the Johnstons of Elgin weaving facilities in Scotland, they were scooped up rather too gleefully from the factory shop. (more…)
