The Cashmere

Not all cashmere is the same

Cashmere is the underfleece of Capra hircus, which acts as an insulating layer to protect the animal from thermal excursions between day and night, for this reason the best cashmere, the same we use to make our sweaters, comes from the desert of China. and from the highlands of Mongolia, where temperature variations are greatest.

 

Only 150 grams of fiber are obtained from each goat and about 4 goats are needed to make a medium weight sweater, which is why quality cashmere is so precious.

 

We buy 100% cashmere yarns directly from the most exclusive Italian spinning mills that work it in various weights and finenesses so as to adapt it to all seasons.

 

Our selection:

  • Duequarantasei By Cariaggi: Precious ultra-light cashmere, soft to the touch, ideal for light weight sweaters. To make a light weight sweater we use about 11 km of yarn.

  • 2/27 by Loro Piana and 2/28 by Biagioli: the classic cashmere, extremely soft, ideal for knits of various weights, from light single-ply to multi-ply. To make a medium weight knit we use about 9 km of yarn.

  • Coarsehair by Loro Piana: a soft cashmere yarn in melange colors, ideal for warm sweaters. To make a pullover of medium waight we use about 5 Km.
