After that menopause hot flash hits, if you’re like me, you’re probably going to be coated in sweat and getting chilled. My response to this (after my looking up to the heavens and yelling ‘REALLY?!’) was to grab the closest pashmina shawl available and wrap up in it. Within seconds, I was more comfortable, enveloped in the soft fabric.
When I cared for my elderly Mom, I used pashmina shawls to protect her from drafts. In fact, that picture to the left is of my Mom wrapped in the shawl I still carry on airplanes to shield myself against the air conditioning. It washes up beautifully and dries in the dryer just as well.
When purchasing a pashmina scarf, make sure to check the measurements as some are larger than others. I prefer the larger size so that I can even use my scarf as a light blanket when I lay on the sofa watching tv.
The best pashminas don’t have to be expensive. In fact, you can find them for well under $20. So, without further ado, let’s see some pashmina shawls, shall we, ladies?

Cashmere Pashmina Shawls
Who doesn’t love the feel of cashmere on their skin? Not only do these cashmere pashminas feel delightful but they are warmer than the woven type. Now, you won’t find these for under $20 but some of them are not much more expensive. Cashmere also soaks up dye so the colors of these pashminas are more vibrant than the woven ones.

Alpaca Wool Pashmina
I particularly love the Alpaca wool pashmina shawls. In fact, during milder days in winter, I frequently just grab my pashmina instead of a heavier coat. Now, these are much more expensive than either the woven or the cashmere pashminas but, in my humble opinion, they’re worth it, particularly after a bad hot flash.
