Kyrgyzstan and its farmers
Cashmere fibers from the Pamir and Tian Shan mountains compare with the finest, lightest and softest in the world. They originate from goats that live in remote high altitudes in Central Asian Kyrgyzstan, mostly unnoticed by the public. Yarns made out of these valuable fibers are multiple times warmer and lighter than clothing made out of usual wool, and convince with their unbelievably fine feel. Hence, the claim «once cashmere, forever cashmere» still holds true, not only for exclusive luxury brands, but for experienced manual knitters as well.
Get an impression of the mountainous landscapes in Kyrgyzstan from where we source our natural fibers and get to know some of the farmers with whom we collaborate.
According to the legend, cosmonaut Yuri Alexejewitsch Gagarin wore Kyrgyz cashmere when his Soviet spaceship Vostok 1 took off for the first time into the vastness of space on April 12, 1961. Tested in outer space, our cashmere with its soft and smooth feel and with its incredible lightness will also please you during cold and wet winter days.
Our 100 % cashmere yarns stand for animal welfare and environmentally sustainable grazing practices as well as for a continuously controlled and transparent processing chain. For these high quality fibers, we pay the farmers in Kyrgyzstan a fair price and support them with a social fund. Each of our yarns is fully traceable - from the goat herds in the Pamir and Tian Shan mountains, to transportation and processing up to the final product.
