White (1) - Pashmina colour swatch

Shades of white are particularly problematic for pashminas, as bleaching damages the cashmere fibres. This is why creams and off whites are the most common pale shades. On the 'white' scale, Cream 55L has warmer yellowy tones, Stone has cool grey tones and Paper White is as close as we can get to a cold white. In our Classic range pictured on the hanging rail is Ivory 55LL. This is an off -white, a shade paler than cream it has a warm tone but has a less yellow cast.

Pictured Cream 55L.

The creams are very difficult to photograph as they all appear similar on screen. I hope that my description of the colours helps! Accordingly, the whites appear in separate blogs so that I can label them correctly.
