Monday’s With Merlin

You must know, I don’t approve of costumes or cat clothing but as I said: cold is my mortal enemy. How could I say no to a cozy one-of-a kind cashmere sweater and matching pillow? Layla met a nice woman,  Margaret K. who made a mid-life decision to create the world’s best handmade cashmere pet fashions. Everything is bespoke of the finest upcycled cashmere. We’re talking super luxury and couture quality. No two items are a like and I was lucky to receive my own. Mine was not made-to-measure but fits well and is dreamy soft in an charming autumnal pattern. It will keep the chill off my old bones as we head towards eeeekkk winter. Layla says she’s never  seen pet fashions of this quality and workmanship. Like all luxury products, they aren’t cheap and will cost about $100+ for a sweater, but aren’t we worth it?

The new company is called The Elegant Hare and they are so new, their website won’t be ready until next week. You can email Margaret at with any questions. They’re already getting press. Click here to see some of the gorgeous designs for cats and dogs.
