This online programme is the first of its kind.

Who is the online mending course for?

Next Steps & Employment Opportunities

Cashmere Circle is actively recruiting new menders to work on cashmere repairs. Our teams work on a freelance basis, candidates can work from home, from anywhere in the UK and we supply our menders with cashmere repair jobs at least once per month (at least 10 garments per month).

Our peak periods are March through May and August to October but we have consistent mending work throughout the year.

Why Cashmere Circle?

Environmental Committment

Our aim is to look after the cashmere garments that already exist. Keeping them out of landfill with careful care and creative recycling. Sustainability is woven into every fibre of our business. From our packaging to the ingredients in our Cashmere Wash. And, we promise to donate 1% of our gross revenue to grassroots environmental groups.

A Green Tomorrow

A business model for a Green Tomorrow. Hawick and the Borders was the global hub for cashmere and knitwear. The region is rich with skills and knowledge passed down through generations. Our focus on zero-waste circularity with emphasis on garment care and upcycling, introduces to the region a model of business more suited for a sustainable tomorrow.

Passing on Skills

For us all to support sustainable fashion, we must ensure the skills and expertise that once filled the mills of the region are not lost. Our lead repairers are those who have spent a lifetime working with international fashion brands. We're ensuring these skills are carried on the next generation by supporting knowledge transfer programmes to inspire a new generation to see the creative possibilities of sustainable fashion.

Highly skilled

Invisible Mending

Invisible mending is a fabric repair technique that re-weaves yarn into the fabric of a garment or item of upholstery to seamlessly patch a hole. The yarn is often discretely taken from other parts of the garment to allow for a perfect colour match.

Preparation is key

Moth damage

Don’t let moths ruin your wardrobe, by protecting your garments. Moth season kicks off in May and lasts all summer through to October and you’ll find them in dark, undisturbed places.
