“In the mountainous regions of Inner Mongolia, Loro Piana discovered Baby Cashmere®: a rare and precious fibre exclusively obtained from the underfleece of the Hyrcus goat kid. It is gathered by means of a delicate and completely harmless procedure done only once in a goat’s life, when it is between three and twelve months old. Loro Piana Baby Cashmere® is available in extremely limited quantities: one kid produces barely 80 grams of the softest undefleece which, once the coarser outer fibres have been discarded, results in just 30-40 grams of useable fibre. So fine are the fibres of Baby Cashmere® that it takes the underfleece of 19 kids to make just one pullover.” (via Luxist)
