The Affair: Love is Cashmere, Love is Wool

L'Affaire Cashmere is...
Love wrapped in Luxury.

When you yearn for warmth and style with a bit of luxury, consider L'affaire Cashmere, a line of scarves and wraps designed with quality and longevity in mind. Premium stoles, scarves and shawls are available in pure cashmere, as well as versions made from wool, and seasonally offered in silk. The collection is a desirable mix of contemporary design with heirloom qualities. You will keep and treasure your L'Affaire for many years to come. Available in solid colors, checks and stripes as well as a variety of classic and contemporary prints, including limited edition runs of hand needle embroideries to choose from. Sourced from Nepal and Kashmir, legendary for their cashmere, silks and wool, L'Affaire Cashmere stoles, scarves and throws are an indulgence to be enjoyed everyday.

Listed below are my top L'affaire Cashmere picks- and they make wonderful gifts!


Diamond Red 100% Cashmere $94.00
A pure cashmere stole in holly berry red is feels right for the holiday. Woven in a diamond weave adding a subtle texture that will brighten any outfit. You can purchase yours HERE.

Animal Spirit Pure Cashmere Stole $139.00
My absolute favorite is this adorable cashmere wrap that has been woven in an animal print. Woven Jaguar spots in ecru, browns and blacks add stylish flair from the wild to the concrete jungle. Soft, silky and warm this accessory is a purr-fect way to warm my winter. Also available in a sexy tiger print HERE.

Aubergine 'n' Paprika Pure Cashmere Stole $129.99
Spice it up in this luxurious cashmere stole knitted in rich eggplant purple and the deep rust hue of paprika. Super soft and versatile, this stole will steal your heart in its delicious Autumnal hues. Serve it up spicey HERE.


If cashmere is  a tad too pricey for your budget,  let me make a case for the more affordable wool versions- still luxurious:

The Bengal Leopard print in wool.  Take a leap for this leopard print wool stole, frugally priced at $52.00.  You can afford to bust out your inner jungle kitty without breaking the bank. Buy yours HERE

Checkered Jacquard Ceil Pure Wool Stole $72.00
THIS is my personal favorite - traditional yet jaunty, a gorgeous Jacquard gem in red, black and blue plaid.

Blue Green Fringed Wool Stole $55.00
The traditional diamond weave shines again in this delectable wool stole with fringe. Dyed a rich jewel hue of jade, this scarf adds a pop of color set to brighten up any grey day. Seen HERE.

Fenced Florals Wool Scarf $54.99
This over sized square scarf blooms madly with a riot of color and blossoms! Pinks and oranges form a petulant bouquet that brings springtime whatever the weather.

Beautiful scarves! Has anyone in Seattle told you about putting Bay Leaves in with your Cashmere? Don't know if it does anything, but my husband's aunt swore by it for keeping bugs away. Here in Tulsa, we have crickets, that I'm told to keep out of your sweater drawers. As if! Love Old Wives' Tales and Home Remedies. And Urban Legends.

Thanks for the mention, Bella! These are lovely...I see a grey check I would love to add to my collection. It has been so warm this year that I have not warn a cashmere scarf once...I am longing to wear them! I love the selection they have.

Thank you so much for adding me to your list Bella! I never considered my toying around with scarves anything particularly inspiring...

All the stoles and scarves in your post are fantastic! My favorite is in the last row, to the left. The colours are so beautiful, and they would brighten up my black winter coat perfectly!

Sadly I can't wear any kind of wool, cashmere or angora. It's such a shame since wool comes in bright and gorgeous colours, and is very hard wearing as well.

I can't wear wool against my skin, but I love cashmere!

I WISH I had a need for such pretty scarves, they are just too heavy for the weather down here (it really doesn't get below 75 anymore...sadface).

I'll take cashmere any day - in fact I am wearing cashmere socks!

Mmmm, cashmere... I adore it. I should probably be glad I live in a climate where I don't seem to need it (it doesn't appear to get cold here) but...
