BroraThe cosiest of cashmere knits, Brora is what every girl wants for Christmas - and any other time of year too please. Coloured cashmeres come in cardies, hoodies, jumpers, scarves, gloves, hand and leg warmers, hats, socks and even hot water bottle covers. With England's cold climate it's the only fashionable way to get through the winter.
