Luigi Colombo Cashmere

Italian manufacturer Lanificio Luigi Colombo is the largest weaver of cashmere in the world. Colombo obtains the fiber from the fleece of the finest Hircus goats, which have been bred in Mongolia for more than 7,500 years. These goats can also be seen in Sinkiang and Tibet. White is the most precious color, but the fleece is available in other colors too in different natural tones.

There is an under layer below the warm and soft fur of these goats, called duvet, which protects the animals from the extreme cold in these regions. This duvet is collected through combing. The goats found in Inner Mongolia are known to give the best quality duvet, which Luigi Colombo collects. This high quality duvet is of the softest variety and is extremely silky.
