Ra-Ku Collection | Fiocco di Cashmere | Medium
Cashmere goats are raised in an extremely wide area that stretches from Afghanistan to the central Asian republics and Mongolia, but the most noble of all cashmere comes from Tibetan goats. Tibetan cashmere goats are raised in the semi-wild by nomadic people, according to thousand-year-old tradition and in harmony with the delicate ecosystem of the high altitude grasslands. Their undercoat is made of long staples (which ensure the yarn is strong and the final products averse to pilling) and of an extreme softness.
Our Tibetan Cashmere is a fiber over 36 mm long and with a gauge below 14.5 microns, characteristics that make it a yarn of absolute excellence. The yarn is spun with the perfect balance of ease to allow the yarn to bloom while still securing the fibers. This is truly the world’s most refined cashmere.
We are offering the cashmere in both Lace and Medium weight in 50 gr balls in a limited palette for now. It will pair well with our Baby Yak. Ra-Ku is perfect for a delicate light shawl as well for a warm and cozy pullover.
The colors of our Fall palette are inspired by Tibetan landscapes but take their names from Italian favorite delicacies and wine as well from our autumn moods.
We hope, you will love all of them and enjoy our small intimate cashmere collection as much as we enjoyed creating it.
