Has anyone tried cashmere sweaters sold under the Barbour label? They're made in Scotland but how good are they? Do we know who makes them for Barbour?

I've had two v-neck Barbour sweaters for a couple of years now. Heavier than I like but have held up well.

STP is pretty customer friendly. It might be worth an email or call. Can't hurt.

I know the STP Barbour shetlands (as opposed to the cashmere) are a big hit at the Trad forum, but my delicate self prefers lambswool and cashmere. One would think that Barbour stuff would be a bit more rugged, if cashmere can ever be so.
