Our cashmere is widely regarded as the finest in the world. It is so fine that 100.000 meters can be spun with just 1kg of yarn. The cashmere goats we use originate from Inner Mongolia where the climatic conditions lend themselves to producing finest cashmere in the world. From there the highest grade fibres arrive in Italy at Filatura di Trivero Srl in Gaglianico, where they are spun into yarn and traded to the most renowned weavers and luxury houses on the planet. Filatura di Trivero also create the highest quality cashmere blends such as our cashmere/silk, cashmere/linen, cashmere/wool. Together with our partner, Lanifico Arca, we weave the selected yarns into products that truly reflect our approach towards creating sustainable luxury accessories.
Like all hair, cashmere likes to be freshened up from time to time. Put the scarf in the washing machine on a cold hand wash only programme once or twice a year to make sure the fibers don't dry out and keep a long life. Dry flat on a towel. Do NOT tumble dry.
