In joyless January, even retail therapy doesn’t help us feel better. (The mere sight of skimpy spring clothes makes us stress eat.)
Move away from the chocolate bar. Wholly Goat — a range of delicate scarves, wraps, shawls and stoles made in Nepal — is a safer indulgence. Made from 100 per cent pure cashmere, the hand-woven designs keep you warm both outside and in (your purchase supports the women of Nepal, who receive training in artistic and management skills to produce them).
Choose from the textured ikat, herringbone weave or prints inspired by Himalayan snow leopards. The wearable neutrals and cheerful shades (burnt orange, fuchsia, indigo, red) are versatile enough to team with a casual jacket or drape elegantly over an evening dress.
Wear it now or save for a cool summer night. You’ll need to cover up if you don’t quit that winter foraging.
Available online at whollygoat.com, £135-£205.
