Yangir Cashmere

The Most Luxurious Cashmere

Through the grasslands and plateaus, across the rivers and mountains, everything is at peace  in Siberia— in ancient Turkic language, Siberia means “the serene land”,. Yangir inhabits Mongolia and the Himalayas at an altitude of 6,000 meters even during winter time.

Every 16 yangir produce just 1 kilogram of raw cashmere, with a fiber diameter of only 11.5 microns. Its quality surpasses the highest grade cashmere, and is the closest to vicuna fluff as a natural fiber. Yangir cashmere has the softest touch and the most luxurious impression.

Vicuna Cashmere

“The Fiber of God”

Vicuna resides at the top of the pyramid of fine fabrics. Regarded as “the Fiber of God”, vicuna is the epitome of exquisiteness and luxury from the distant mountains of the Andes. Vicuna, regarded by the Incas as a symbol of divinity, lives in the Altiplano plateau of Peru.

At 5,000 meters altitude above the Andean plateau, the sunlight is extremely strong and temperature difference varies up to 40 degrees Celsius between day and night. Vicuna feeds on fiber-rich grass in such a harsh climate. As a result, vicuna cashmere is much softer and lighter than other animal fine hairs.

To produce a single coat requires the finest undercoat hair from 35 vicunas, while the global annual supply of vicuna fluff is merely 0.5% of cashmere.

Chinchilla Fine Hair

Most Unique Fabric in the World

Legend has it that in the sixteenth century, after Spain’s conquest of the Incas, the Spaniards made a tribute of treasures to the Spanish Queen wrapped in a chinchilla robe, and it has since become a symbol of good fortune.

The South American chinchilla inhabits the Andes. Their bodies are covered with even fine hair, in a silky density that brings a generous sense of touch. Most chinchilla hair shows a hue of hazy blue-gray. In recent years, white, ebony and violet have also been cultivated. It is one of the rarest fabrics recognized by the fashion world, with its value almost equal to that of gold.
