...Otherwise, consider Nettles Cashmere, the brain-child of Jeanetta Rowan Hamilton. She takes old cashmere pieces that she picks up in car-boot sales and thrift shops and refashions them. If they've been attacked by moths , she covers up the holes with applique bits of fabric, ribbons lace or other trims. She will also take your old and much loved but dilapidated sweater or cardigan and re-work it for you. Prices start from £120 for a freshened- up knit, and go up to £220 for a lovely grey cardigan embellished with vintage lace. All are one of a kind.

"There are niche brands, too, such as cashmere cardigans by a lovely brand called Nettles, recycled from old sweaters, then decorated with lace or embroidery; Mary wore a pink one on the Masterclass show last week, a spin-off from the Bake Off series — it’s very bohemian in a Helena Christensen sort of way."

"If you already have a moth and other holes (as I do in my beloved cashmere Shirin Guild sweater dress) do as Jeanetta Rowan Hamilton, of www.nettlescashmere.com does, and revive and customise by covering up the holes with charming pieces of old fabric edged with ribbon and embellished with buttons, stars, beads or lace."
