Overload of eye candy

When Haleigh Palmer, the owner of Golightly Cashmere, available exclusively online or at her two retail outlets, Chocolate + Cashmere in Taos and Santa Fe, opened her flagship shop on Bent Street, she thought the two luxury goods would go together - both a treat for the senses and balm for the soul.

The cashmere Palmer sources is from the oldest mill in Scotland, where the technique of spinning and weaving fine cashmere originated during the Raj Era of the British Empire, when paisley shawls became popular among the upper classes. The traditions came from Kashmir and Nepal, but Scotland turned it into a fine art.

These are true luxury items, intended to last a lifetime. Each piece comes in an array of mouth-watering colors - a visit to her shops is almost an overload of eye candy - the scarves, for example, are available in more than 40 different hues.

And who doesn't want chocolate at this time of year?

Her Santa Fe shop is located at 109 East Palace Road. A historical location, it's the building that once housed J. Robert Oppenheimer's offices, while her Taos store nestles at the turn on Bent Street, where it narrows to meet Camino de la Placita.
