A little bit about Olivier London's Cashmere:
Olivier's cashmere is produced in Scotland using methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. As comfortable to wear on a summers afternoon as it is on a cold winter’s day.Using traditional techniques that have been refined over centuries, their cashmere pills less than any other. Made to last and be passed down from one generation to the next. Their cashmere story starts with hardy mountain dwelling goats that have adapted to live in the harsh environments and extreme temperatures of the Gobi Desert.To survive, the goats develop wonderfully thick coats made up of a coarse outer guard hair and a fine, soft undercoat. The cashmere comes from only the finest downy undercoat.
Traditionally, farmers would collect cashmere fibre by ceremonially combing their goats in the spring. Combing is still widely used today, alongside some farmers who prefer shearing. Olivier's cashmere is sourced from sustainable herding and grazing practices, that promote high standards of animal welfare, and work to protect this traditional way of life within nomadic communities.
