Ballantyne, Caerlee Mill, was one of Scotland’s oldest cashmere companies with roots traceable back to 1820 and earlier. Such was the reputation of the goods produced here that the generic name for a cashmere jumper in Italy is a “Ballantyne”. Exclusive clothing was also crafted here by the “Intarsia” method, an intricate and time consuming hand method which can produce detailed one off designs
