> CASHMERE: I use only 100% cashmere that had a previous life as a sweater. I ONLY use sweaters that still have the "100% cashmere" tag still sewn in. If I still question the content of the fabric, I test it with a bleach test, burn test (it's amazing what you can learn with Clorox and a match) AND microscope analysis.
> ALLERGIES: My studio is smoke and pet free. I wash all of the sweaters in my washing machine and dry them in my dryer before cutting them up. However, they all had a previous life that I cannot vouch for. If you have allergies, we should talk before you buy. If you are concerned about the "itch" factor, convo me and I will send you a small swatch.
> NEW DESIGNS: I am working on new designs all the time - if you want to be notified of new designs in my shop, convo me and I will add you to my mailing list.
> WHOLESALE: I do wholesale my creations. You can email me at hautegoat [at!] gmail.com
> CUSTOM: I custom make cashmere scarves (your favorite colors, team colors, custom sizes).
> MO: My mission is to reclaim the health of the earth by reusing items that are destined for the landfill.

> CARE: Hand wash cold water with mild soap and hang to dry. If you prefer to have it pressed, iron it on wool setting with a cloth between the scarf and the iron - and a lot of steam. You can iron the screenprint, but don't iron the ruffly flower or the fringe (unless you want to flatten it).
