When refinement equals effortlessness: Experience the supreme ease of superfine cashmere, worn against your skin, every day. Cashmere is one of the most luxurious natural fibres. It has its origins in Central Asia among ancient shepherd communities, who use the fiber to protect themselves from the harsh environment. It is obtained from the undercoat of cashmere goats when they naturally shed their winter coat. Today, the silky, fine fibres are used to create soft yarns which lay the foundation for luxurious woven and knitted fabrics. Cashmere is one of the fundamental building blocks of Akris ready-to-wear and scarves.
The Most Wanted Fabric
No other material is as soft, fine, warm and versatile as cashmere. It is characterized by its delicate, soft fibers. It provides a natural light-weight insulation without bulk. Looking at the extremely thin fibres explains how this is achieved: They contain an “air chamber” that naturally performs functions of thermoregulation and perspiration, an effect that takes extreme efforts to reproduce in synthetic fibres. Fibers are highly adaptable and easily spun into yarns and light to heavy-weight fabrics.
