The Ermenegildo Zegna Cloth Cashmere Story: Cashmere is a particularly rare and precious fiber.
Prince of Scots Throws featuring Cashmere by Ermenegildo Zegna
production of cashmere is only five million kilograms in fact. Cashmere fibers are obtained from a certain species of goat, commonly known as the Kashmir goat, which is bred in places such Iran, Russia, Afghanistan, Turkey and India. But the most beautiful and most prestigious cashmere in the world comes from the highlands of Inner Mongolia, in China, a territory with a very harsh climate. Inner Mongolia Cashmere is outstanding for the fineness of its fibers (14 – 15 µ), their length and uniformity and for the particularly soft handle they give. To protect themselves from the cold, Kashmir goats have two coats: one superficial, of bulky hair, and one closer to the body, consisting of a short, fine and very warm down known as duvet. In springtime, shepherds collect the wool manually using special combs with long teeth. The fibers of the two coats are then separated, because only the duvet makes real cashmere.
Today, Ermenegildo Zegna, the more than a century-old, Biella-based, family-run textile and luxury goods group, supplies some of the world’s most prestigious tailors and garment manufacturers including Prince of Scots and Southampton Home.
