I have still got my first Alabaste scarf and it is still in mint condition even with me wearing it everyday in winter and wishing I could in summer. It is looking good after some serious wear. To warm my day at work, out at night wedding, parties, on the beach for sundowners….keeping my toddler warm on daily visits to the park and sunset suppers on the beach. Since my first Alabaste purchase about a 8 years ago, I have grown my collection and have no intention to stop. I wont stop until I have all the colours. Alabaste quality is premium, luxurious and everything cashmere should be, not to mention a lovable price.
