Just like this one Kate Middleton wore for the evening of her wedding (pic hopefully attached!).

Preferably dusky pink. Like really, really pale pink. Have tried lots of shops and can't find anything remotely similar. Does it exist?! Can anyone help?!

Monsoon are good for angora knitwear. Otherwise you could knit one (or get someone to?), example here

or sometimes you find odd things like this on ebay- not necessarily secondhand.

Angora is getting hard to find - welfare? but mohair has a similar fluffy look

I think with eBay it's likely to all be cheap imitation stuff from China etc - this is for a friend (Bride) to wear in the evening of her wedding, so happy to spend ££ and don't want it looking cheap. Knitting not an option - don't know anyone that talented grin but Thanks.

Didn't realise Angora was a "thing" - friend is very animal welfare conscious so I will try googling with Mohair instead! Thanks!

Yep, mohair is nice. Angora is very cruelly obtained. You can get some companies who source it ethically but it tends to be dearer.
