Berk CashmereOUR HISTORY
Established in 1961 Berk is a small family-run business and British institution; recognised the world over for understated style and impeccable taste. Our knitwear is classic with an insouciant elegance. We offer timeless styles in the very best and most luxurious fabric; cashmere. Today, the same men and women who worked for Ballantyne now make knitwear for the Berk label in our mill. We knit our cashmere tightly in time-honoured fashion, wash it in pH neutral water and call it 'Bare Finish™ cashmere'. This 'art' in cashmere is unique to Berk Cashmere. We no longer sell Ballantyne cashmere because it is made in China and no longer meets our high standards. We only sell Berk cashmere made in Scotland.
On this site you will find vee, crew and polo necks, roll collars, cardigans, twin-sets, jackets, blazers, slip-overs, vests and shep shirts in 1,2,3 and 4 ply cashmere. All of our cashmere is made in the Scottish Borders; the home of cashmere. Our customers come back to us time and again as they realise that their Berk cashmere is an investment in quality.
