For many years Ballantyne made our mens and womens cashmere. In 2014 Ballantyne went into administration (Chapter 11) and sadly their 300 year old knitting factory, the oldest in the world was closed and the looms destroyed. However, most importantly, most of the men and women who made Ballantyne knitwear were employed by our factory to continue making our knitwear collections. These artisans maintain a 300 year tradition of knitting the very finest Scottish bare finish cashmere notwithstanding the demise of Ballantyne.

Berk cashmere is committed to the people, the place and the process which makes the finest cashmere in the world.
