Hadley

Hadley Cashmere was one of the leading cashmere sweater manufacturers in the United States from the 1940s through the 1970s.

Hadley made sweaters for department stores and often both names will be on the label. If you suspect that an unlabeled sweater might be cashmere, look in the side seams for the little 100% cashmere label shown in picture two. Hadley very often put this label in the side.

Besides cashmere sweaters, Hadley also made coordinating wool skirts and silk blouses. These matched sets were very popular with college girls in the 1950s and early 1960s.
