CALEO Cashmere stands for the finest raw materials and Italian craftsmanship. The entire range is produced in small, family-run knitting factories in Tuscany. Each piece is made from 100% cashmere and undergoes several quality controls.
Today, the Kashmir region in the Himalayas is divided between India, Pakistan and China. The Kashmir valley lies at an altitude of about 1,700 m above sea level. The precious cashmere is named after this region. Cashmere is obtained at the end of winter by combing the undercoat of the cashmere goat. Each goat produces about 250 grams. After cleaning and sorting out individual upper hairs by hand, 100 - 150 grams of fibre remain per animal. The best quality is fine, long hair.
In order to get a feeling for the high-quality material, there is the following rule of thumb: For a cashmere sweater you need the hair of about 3-4 goats. From the wool of a sheep you get about 3-4 sweaters. Cashmere is a popular yarn for winter and summer clothing. It not only feels soft and cuddly, but also regulates the temperature.
