Shropshire Snow Shoot

Shropshire Snow Shoot

Snow was forecast last week and we were delighted at the timing...this meant that we could launch our new 'Paloma' cashmere range in seasonal style in our own beautiful Shropshire hills. Perhaps Rosie, Adam & I were a bit ambitious lugging the (rather heavy) borrowed skis up Nescliffe Hill in the sunshine... If you peer really closely into the distance you can see snow...honestly....

A December ditty...

Well, busy times here at Turtle Doves Headquarters and we are delighted that so many of you are visiting us - a big hello everyone!

It's been a funny week all round with lots of press about shopping days with silly names and we'd be interested to know what you think about it. We spend lots of time at markets and events, surrounded by the sort of products & produce you don't easily find online and below is something from us which kind of sums up our thoughts.

Finding New Friends

Finding New Friends

As the weather finally started to get chilly we turned our thoughts to finding new Turtle Doves friends to add to our little community of eco-cashmere-holics.

A busy autumn for cashmere!

A busy autumn for cashmere!

As I sit writing this I am very aware that although we have officially been in Autumn for some time this morning feels like the first properly chilly day we’ve had.

Help for Raynaud's sufferers

Help for Raynaud's sufferers

We’ve had some great coverage recently about how Turtle Doves help Raynaud’s sufferers. We have lots of repeat custom from people who find that wearing them all day, either as a wrist warmer or a fingerless glove, really helps ease the discomfort. They can even be worn under your usual gloves when you’re out and about so there really is no reason to take them off all day (some customers sleep in them too!).
