The Lorne 2 ply cashmere sweater is the foundation of our cashmere collection. We have made this garment for over 50 years and it is still the benchmark by which all other cashmere is judged.
We use 42 processes starting with knitting under tension to fully fashion this garment which is hand linked with cashmere yarn. Then we wash and steam it to shape using pH neutral soft Scottish water, so it will never shrink. The classic shape has rolled cuffs and trims and a saddle shoulder for maximum comfort. Try to find a better cashmere sweater and you will come back to Berk and buy our iconic Lorne in Vee or Crew Neck in 30 colours.

BERK CASHMERE LTD
Our cashmere is ethically sourced from Inner Mongolia where the Capra Hircus goat roams freely. It is spun in Scotland in the oldest cashmere spinning mill. The whole process is an environmentally friendly, to safeguard the livelihood of herding communities and protect the important, fragile environment in which they live. Sustainability means paying more for the best cashmere in order to preserve and restore grasslands, ensure animal welfare and most importantly to secure livelihood of the goatherds.
This commitment to the people, the place and the process is reflected in our retail prices. Let us remember that these magnificent creatures on the mountainous slopes of Inner Mongolia at -40º, in the tender care of the goatherds ensure that we can wear and enjoy the rarest most luxurious cashmere in the world, in good conscience.
