Luxury + Responsibility
All of our cashmere is sourced from the semi wild Kashmir goats living and thriving in the cold region of Mongolia. The high and dry plateau surrounding the Gobi Desert of Mongolia produces the best quality of cashmere due to the vast temperature oscillation between summer and winter. The winters can be as cold as -35C and the summers +35C, resulting in the goats producing the warmest cashmere.
The fleece of the goats is combed during the spring moulting season, and their hairs cleaned, classified and spun to create cashmere yarns from which our products are woven.
WHY WE LOVE CASHMERE
OUR BABY ALPACA
All of our baby alpaca wool is sourced from small farmers in Peru. There are more than one million small alpaca farmers in the central Andes of South America and the Alpacas are an important pillar of the livelihood and Peruvian cultural identity. This Fibre to Finish model is a traditional way of working for their communities and keeping this sustainable and responsible approach alive.
Fibre to Finish means that the entire production process is completed in the same community in a vertical integrated model to reduce transportation, co2 emissions and protect artisan skills of the Peruvian community.
Baby Alpaca is an excellent insulator for heat and cold, with high performance and durability whilst remaining incredibly soft to touch making it a remarkable fabric choice for a decadent everyday scarf.
WHY WE LOVE BABY ALPACA
Despite its name baby alpaca wool does not come from baby alpacas but is a reference to the grade of the alpaca wool. Baby alpaca fibres come from the neck chest of adult alpacas and are finer than regular alpacas. As a natural fabric, it can also be reunited with the earth, or recycled with ease
