A Case For Cashmere

A Case For Cashmere

Scottish and Italian cashmere are among the highest quality in the world. Born from decades of heritage, we looked to these countries to source the most beautiful fabric from among the most skilled craftsmen in the world.

Top Grade

Top Grade

Cashmere is quantified by thickness of the hair (in microns) and the length of the fiber. Our cashmere yarns are the top, Grade A quality. Grade A cashmere diameters range from 14-30mm, and its lengths are a maximum of 36mm. Our cashmere, from both Italy and Scotland, expresses a 15mm diameter and 36mm length, meaning it is among the softest in the world. Many of our competitors use Grade B cashmere, washing it first so that it feels softer to the touch, which as an effect makes it more likely to pill.

Storied Heritage

Storied Heritage

Scotland and Italy have for decades been the worldwide centers of heritage, tradition and excellence for the design and craftsmanship of cashmere pieces. The quality of their cashmere simply cannot be compared to cashmere mass-produced in China, as they boast the most meticulous techniques for spinning, knitting and weaving in the world. Manufacturers first learned how to card cashmere in Scotland in the early 1800s (carding is a process that disentangles, cleans and intermixes fibers to produce a continuous loose strand that can then be processed into cashmere as a fabric).
Our suppliers know the exact quality and composition of the cashmere yarn that they are buying and can guarantee it’s 100% cashmere.

Contrary to mass-produced cashmere garments, our sweaters and scarves are carefully knitted through over thirty processes that are unique to Scotland and Italian heritage. There are two ways of making knitwear: fully fashioned knitwear and cotton-sewn knitwear. The key point of difference between the two is the slope of the seam between to the neck to the shoulder, and down the arm. Our fully-fashioned knitwear creates one continuous slope to allow for full movement in the garment, allowing it to fit properly. This is only achieved by very discrete processes to join carefully cut panels of knitted fabric together.
