This is possibly the most unique cashmere for women you've ever seen.
Red Twist wraps resemble a long cardigan minus the buttons, with two sleeves and a very wide body. Then you take the flaps and twist them around you any variety of ways until you're warm and comfy— and looking chic.
I know because I've been test-driving one for a couple of months now, and I have to admit, it's very clever. As a constant traveler and inherently cold person, I'm always searching for a blanket: now I'm wrapped up in one that's far softer and a fashion statement.
The wraps are made from 100% pure Mongolian cashmere so you can imagine how soft they are. Contrary to some cashmere for women it isn't bulky. So you can wrap away and not emerge looking like a snowman.
Red Twist is one-size-fits-all and comes in 16 colors, including a host of yummy neutrals called "the classics" and a series of updated colors for 2013.
By the way, I spy an emerald green in there called "marine green," which if you didn't know is Pantone's 2013 color of the year.
Naturally I save the best news for last: there is a charitable component. With the purchase of a wrap ($175) a portion of the proceeds benefits the Josephine Charles Foundation, which will in turn help underprivileged Chinese girls attend school.
I think that is a thought we can all cozy up to this winter.
