Fabric

Blended fibers take on properties of the joining counterparts to achieve uniquely desirable characteristics.
Wool is a renewable fiber; one sheep can produce 4-5 pounds of wool per year. Wool provides warmth by trapping heat, while simultaneously transporting moisture away from the body so skin stays dry and comfortable. It is naturally antimicrobial, so it resists odors and rarely needs washing. Its exceptional durability allows for long garment lifespan, and it can biodegrade when disposed into right soil conditions.
Silk is known for its drape, luster and ability to take rich color. It is the strongest natural fiber and has low density, creating light and comfortable fabric. Silk’s resilient elasticity maintains garment shape, and its smooth surface is resistant to attracting dirt. Silk keeps you cool in warm weather, and provides insulating warmth in cool weather.
Cashmere is one of the most luxurious wools, with desirable drape, softness and wrinkle resistance. It is up to three times more insulating than regular wool, with lofty fibers that can be tightly knit into warm and lightweight fabric. Like all wool, it wicks moisture and allows skin to breathe. Cashmere is considered hypoallergenic, since it doesn’t have lanolin. While more delicate than other wool, cashmere garments will not lose their shape if properly cared for. This is due to the fiber’s natural stretch that allows garment to move with you and recover.
