February in Love
Valentine's Day is approaching, the feast of lovers, and The Florentine recommends a gift from Il Borgo Cashmere

For dyed-in-the-wool romantics

When all is said and done, we crave cuddles. And cashmere is as snuggly as it gets, especially when it hails from the Mugello market town Borgo San Lorenzo and available from the luxury store two minutes from the Duomo. Handmade in 100 per cent maxi yarn cashmere, Il Borgo Cashmere’s beanie (410 euro) with a fox fur pompom is contemporary, super soft and undaunted by winter chills. Il Borgo has been in the same family since 1949; they know their goats
