Dawson International is to create 70 new jobs with a new cashmere project, the Mirror reported.

The troubled textile firm is ploughing £2.5m into a production unit at the firm's head office at Kinross, Perthshire.

Top model Joni, the new "face" of the firm's Ballantyne brand, jetted in to take part in laying the foundation stone of the new plant which will house a new cashmere dehairing operation.

Paul Munn, chief executive of Dawson, said: "This heralds one of the biggest investments in Scottish textiles in many years."
