Our Friend and PALU Ambassador Squash Falconer
Our friend @squashfalconer has spent her whole life seeking out and enjoying adventures. These adventures have taken her all over the world, including the top of Mount Everest and back.
We were delighted when she agreed to try out our 100% Cashmere Arctic base layer. This is what she had to say:
“I am loving the Arctic base layer, it feels lovely, keeps me warm and wicks away sweat brilliantly. And because it’s 100% Cashmere it doesn’t get smelly.”

Sport Achat Winter 2018 Lyon France
In March this year PALU was invited to exhibit at the Sport Achat Winter trade fair in Lyon. This fair brings together many of the main players in the outdoor, mountain and winter sports industry, display ing clothing, accessories, equipment and services. The PALU stand generated a lot of interest and bought us several new French clients.
The PALU Alpine Tour
In January this year, after much planning and with great excitement and some trepidation, we were delighted to be able to take the new PALU collection on the road. Using our PALU company car, a 1983 Mercedes G class we set off for St Moritz to start our Alpine tour visiting some fantastic stores along the way. We were delighted with the reception our knitwear and outerwear collection received and took some really exciting orders.
Liz Rose conquered the Seven Summits with the help of PALU
Liz Rose is a 26 year old mountain climber from West Vancouver, British Columbia and is the youngest Canadian to climb the Seven Summits. A good friend of PALU she wore our base for her final two climbs.
She told us later that she is converted to wearing Cashmere now for its insulating qualities and the fact that it remains odour free far longer than any synthetic base layer would.
“On November 4th 2017, I became the youngest Canadian to climb the Seven Summits (the highest mountain on each continent). On two of my final climbs, Denali in Alaska, and Elbrus in Russia, I wore a PALU ProCashmere base layer. The base layer kept me warm, yet was sweat wicking while I was climbing. It kept my temperature regulated throughout my climbs. On Denali I wore it for 14 days straight and it withstood odours, my tent mates can attest this. “The weight of the base layer was perfect for wearing it as a stand alone piece climbing on a hot day and also layered well with other pieces in temperatures up to -30C. I look forward to wearing Palu again in my future climbs.”
