PASHMINA---Apparently this is post worthy

It has become VERY clear from your comments that I must explain what one would do with a pashmina, ***pronounced, pash (as in cash with a "p")-mi (like me)-na (as in duh with an "n")...I told you it was a fun word to say!***if one were to win one.  Well, if you want the technical definition go here.  If you want the short version, continue reading...

Pashminas are frequently used as a wrap or shawl.  They are sometimes cashmere, and sometimes a blend of silk and cashmere.  Other uses for them are limited only by your imagination.  They can cover a bookshelf or decorative table.  Some will drape it over a couch for a splash of color and then use it as a cover or wrap when it is a bit chilly.  They are lightweight and soft.  I see them as the adult version of receiving blankets.  What exactly does one DO with a receiving blanket....whatever you need a square of fabric for (a blanket, a spit up rag, a cover for nursing in public, a changing pad, a basket liner...and the list goes on).  I hope this helps!  Does anyone have any other uses for a pashmina they would like to share?

Is it sad that my knowledge of pashminas comes from Friends? So excited about your give-away!

I am with Dave and Jenni, I will never forget that episode on Friends with Reese Witherspoon playing Jennifer Anistan's little sis. That is my only real-life experience with a pashmina. But they sound wonderful and definitely something I would love to win.

Since I've never left fjsdklfjds county, I need these clarifications ;-)

And yes, it is a fun word to say!

Too funny!! Seriously, though, thanks for enlightening me on several different uses for a pashmina. I had the right concept in my mind, but you helped to clarify it!
