Journey back to the roots

On the highlands of the Himalayas, goats called Capra Hircus, are raised by nomadic shepherds who have an in depth knowledge of their surroundings.In order to deal with the extreme, harsh and windy weather conditions of winter, the goats develop a thick silky fleece. Its rarity and softness make it an extremely precious wool. Its texture is incredibly fine as well as soft. 

In spring, when the goats naturally molt, shepherds carefully collect the fleece. The average amount collected from a female is 200g and 400g from a male. The fleece is sold in its natural state, then sorted and soaked in a preparation of rice flour and completely cleaned of any impurities. There will only be about a third of it left that can be spun. 

The yarn will then be delivered to the workshops.
