RI Selects: Rich, Creamy Cashmere Sample Sale

Rural Intelligence StyleNow - December 24
Non-fat and delicious: a cash-‘n’-carry, high-end cashmere sample sale at a Hudson pop-up store.  It takes 24 goats a year to grow enough cashmere to make a coat, eight to make a sweater.  Little wonder the real deal costs so much.  But not here. This 60-year-old, family-owned, high-end cashmere firm (not Laura Piana, but close) buys cashmere and camel hair directly from Mongolian herdsman and turns it into woven fabrics and knitted accessories that end up at the likes of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.  On opening day of this not-be-be-missed event, actress Parker Posey and ABC news anchor Deborah Roberts were spotted with armloads of sweaters, $75 - $125; coats, $50; cashmere-lined deerskin gloves, $35; scarfs, $30 - $45; shawls, $7 - $150; oversized throws, $150; even doggie coats, $20.  Stock will be renewed this Thursday.  —Kate Cohen
