Claire Morgan, Founder of Finch Cashmere
Finch Cashmere Founder Claire Morgan’s first introduction to cashmere was her classic round necked cardigan which was only aired on high days and holidays. As times have changed and cashmere designs and colours have become more exciting and available, the once ‘round-neck cardigan’ has morphed into an array of key wardrobe staples
Having realised the benefits of cashmere in Claire’s wardrobe it soon became apparent that the feather light comfort and additional warmth was something no other knit could rival.
Finch Cashmere has been designed to fulfil all wardrobe needs and is of the very best quality; not only does the 100% cashmere yarn from Loro Piana lift the spirit, and keep the body warm but it feeds the eye lending a soft, flattering and luxurious glow.
‘I believe that quality cashmere can be worn continually and is not the preserve of special occasions. With this driver, the essence of my ‘every day’ collection is practical luxury. Cashmere garments are hugely versatile; a mere tweak of accessories will cover many occasions but married with a modern edge can give it a current look.’ Claire Morgan, Founder of Finch.
Finch Cashmere – The Brand Story
It was a very simple decision for Claire Morgan to rename her beautiful cashmere brand from Plum to Finch; simply, there were too many ‘Plums’ out there.
‘My collections are neat and carefully chosen, changing annually and needing a unique voice; hence Finch Cashmere was born. You may ask why ‘Finch’? This delightful, little hedgerow bird captures the heart of the collection – a classic that works every day, comes in many glorious hues and with a beautiful song that makes you smile.’

Cashmere knitwear can be dry-cleaned or handwashed. Please refer to our manufacturer's label.
For hand washing use a luke warm water with a mild detergent. Do not stretch, rub or wring the garment. Rinse thoroughly in clean luke warm water and squeeze the excess water out without distorting the knit. Smooth out the garment to its original shape on a clean towel to dry at room temperature away from direct heat. Do not tumble dry.
Should pressing be required, use a cloth and a cool iron.
Just a little tip from a friend's immaculate grandmother who always held the view that cashmere garments should not be worn on consecutive days but alternated with another therefore allowing the garment to relax back to its original shape.
Moths like cashmere just as much as we do so zip-lock plastic bags are essential!

We have made every effort to make sure our product information is accurate. However, discrepancies can occur. For instance, whilst every attempt has been made to reproduce colours faithfully, because cashmere is a natural fibre there may be a slight difference between batches, so the colour in the brochure may differ fractionally from the colour of the garment.
Our Cashmere garments are put together by hand, so you may find some small irregularities
