LORO PIANA EXCELLENCE
Follow your senses to discover the wonder of Baby Cashmere
Let the exotic scent of a faraway land lead you here
It was carried by the wind that blows through the deep dunes of inner Mongolia, where the ground is dried and the nights are cold.
A land that is hostile but hides the most precious secret.
Dunes and dry rocks smelling of the wild taste of the wind are decorated by tiny bunches of white hair caught up from the fleeces of the cashmere goats or Capra Hircus, the little and resilient animals living at one with this harsh land, protected by an incredibly fine fibre.
Seize the sound you will hear only once in a lifetime
It’s the sound of the hardworking hands of the local goat herders, gathering Baby Cashmere from the underfleece of Capra Hircus kids that are no more than 6 before they are 12 months old.
The time is right when the wind becomes quiet and the weather gets milder.
When they would have naturally moulted anyway, between May and June, local herders delicately comb the goats, separating the babies’ underfleece from that of the adults.
Hear nature's call
and follow its flow
See purity and craftsmanship unite
Measuring 13.5 microns in diameter, Baby Cashmere’s lightness and softness is beyond compare to the already fine Cashmere that is around 15 microns.

30 grammes of rarity.
It’s what is usable from the 80 grammes of fine fibre obtained from a Baby Cashmere goat.
