This superior, and incredibly special yarn comes from rare fibres found in the undercoat of baby cashmere goats. These particular goats dwell in the mountainous wilderness of Inner Mongolia, China, a region characterised by extreme temperature fluctuations, creating our resilient baby goat cashmere fibres.
Cashmere goats adapted to this harsh climate by developing a double fleece: an outer guard layer that protects the undercoat from water, and an undercoat made of ultra-fine hairs with strong insulating properties. This keeps the animals warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
The fibres are collected through a very laborious and difficult process and are then divided into different quality ranges, based on thickness, length and colour.
In the next stage fibres are dyed and spun into yarns, which are widely used in the garment industry, either knitted into jumpers and similar products, or woven into fabrics for premium suits or accessories. Our cashmere fibres measure 13.5 microns in diameter, some of the smallest and finest in garment making. Our cashmere is supplied to some of the top fashion houses in the world, as well as our own beautiful brand.
