Vicuna Cashmere

The World’s Highest Grade Fabric——“The Fiber of God” from ancient Inca

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. The value of vicuna cashmere is precious as that of gold. In the ancient Inca civilization, wearing vicuna cashmere is a privilege solely belonged to the king.

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.

The Andeans, who carry on the ancient Inca civilization, still adhere to the difficult and time-consuming craftsmanship tradition to weave up this precious gift from the Andean highlands.

Yangir Cashmere

The Most Luxurious Cashmere——Gold fiber in Central Asia

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 — yangir is one of the highest-altitude mammals.

The color of yangir cashmere varies as the seasons change. In the summer, their back is a brownish yellow, the side of the body is a light brown, and the abdomen is white. In the winter, their hair is long and the color light, showing a unique color distinct from industrial dyes.

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.
