In addition to our renowned luxury cashmere, we also produce a range of high quality garments made from the finest yarns, including lambswool, merino and mohair.
Mohair has been used as a natural material since the 11th century
Mohair has been used as a natural material since the 11th century, gaining popularity around a hundred years ago. The popular fibre comes from the hair of the Angora goat which grows in uniform locks until it is shorn twice a year, with no harm coming to the animal.
Merino is a wonderful, lighter weight alternative to cashmere. The wool of merino sheep is often regarded as being some of the finest and softest available. It has antibacterial properties, absorbing up to one third of its weight and drawing sweat away from the skin so it remains warm even when wet. These animals are mostly bred in New Zealand and Australia with a fleece that is world class.
PURE NEW WOOL
New Zealand wool helps to create a bold hue in our non-cashmere garments
Pure new wool is produced from a blend of New Zealand crossbred wool and lambswool. The coarser, New Zealand wool helps to create a bold hue in our non-cashmere garments whilst the lambswool gives them a softer handle. Our lambswool is sourced from South America where the sheep are farm reared and shearing is carried out in a humane way.
