Johnstons of Elgin's Recalibrating Blue


At this time of year, jetting off to a sun-drenched beach would usually be at the top of our self-care to-do list. So, with travel restrictions likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future, we look at alternative ways to recalibrate. Let us bring you the serene, soothing blues of a bright summer’s sky in soft, cloud-like cashmere, inspired by the stunning scenery that’s right here on our doorstep.


We might not be able to travel far, but it's still important to take time out from daily life stresses. At Johnstons of Elgin, we are blessed to be surrounded by some of the world’s most stunning scenery - with breathtaking mountains and beaches just a stone's throw away from our Scottish mills. Consider accessorising our Maria Superfine Merino Wool Skirt in Serenity with our Haze Digital Ombre Cape, made with Superfine Merino Wool, to explore your local environment - stopping to enjoy the little details can be so good for the soul. If the views where you live leave you less than inspired, check out Visit Scotland for a taste of our beautiful homeland at its finest.


Outdoor meetups are the social lifeline we’ve all been waiting for, so why not set the world to rights with good friends, great food and refreshments on our Herringbone Merino Throw? Whether you prefer to picnic in your garden or barbeque at the beach, it feels great to finally be socialising again.

Layer up for the occasion with our Lightweight Merino Wool Scarf in calming Cielo. Its light as air and has the smoothest of handles.


If the past year has taught us anything, it has been to live more simply, focusing on what really matters to us. Recalibrate your wardrobe to reflect this simplified way of living, with high quality, transeasonal pieces that are as durable as they are beautiful.

Fresh blue shades of Cielo, Wedgewood and Dark Navy bring an air of calm to your spring summer capsule, inspired by the Moray coastline's stunning landscapes near our Elgin mill.

You can also feel positive about the environmental impact of your purchase, knowing that our luxurious, renewable Cashmere fibres will last. Our timeless designs will remain relevant for many years to come, and our natural fibres will biodegrade in soil or cold water at the end of their life. As a brand, we are focused on sustainability, and by shopping with us, you are supporting our efforts to improve grassland management in Mongolia – the source of much of our fine Cashmere fibres.

There are many ways to press the reset button and take a break from the pressures of life. We may not be able to enjoy foreign shores for a while, but we can recalibrate closer to home. Until we can travel further, let our mellow seasonal tones of Cielo, Wedgewood and Dark Navy remind you of the sand and waves.
