The best cashmere starts with the best raw materials. These luxurious fibres originate from goats in northern China, – the regions cold climate encourages the growth of soft underbelly hair, which is then combed before carefully being hand-sorted into different grades.
In order to create a truly superior-quality yarn, only the finest and longest fibres can be used. Consequently, it takes the hair of four Chinese goats to make one John Laing sweater.
During the spinning process, a light oil is added to the yarn to help reduce friction as it passes through the multiple knitting and make-up operations. The delicate yarn forms a tight uniform stitch, providing a wonderful fabric that wont lose its shape or size when washed.
Every John Laing garment and accessory is available in over 180 different colours. Email one of our agents to find out more.
