Baby Cashmere

Baby cashmere is Loro Piana’s exclusively fibre obtained from the underfleece of Capra hircus kids.

Incomparably soft, light and precious, baby cashmere is 15% finer than even the finest cashmere from adult goats.

Baby cashmere is available in extremely limited quantities since it can only be gathered once in a lifetime from each kid, making it one of Loro Piana’s rarest offerings.

This highly prized fibre exists today primarily due to Loro Piana’s pioneering spirit and creative enterprise. Ultimately, it is the fulfilment of a dream in establishing a new frontier of excellence.

Vicuña

Vicuña, the finest animal fibre that can be found in the wild, is Loro Piana’s most exclusive offering.

Known as The Fibre of the Gods, this golden, ultra-soft fleece derives from a small member of the camel family that lives wild in the Andes: the vicuña.

A vicuña can only be sheared once every two years, and a total of five times during their life. The extreme rarity of the material has made the species vulnerable to poachers who try to obtain their prized fleece.

Due to Loro Piana’s tireless efforts to protect and nurture this extraordinary creature, the once threatened vicuña population has slowly recovered and is now thriving in Peru and Argentina.

Storm System®

Storm System® is Loro Piana’s revolutionary treatment that makes the world’s finest fabrics completely waterproof and wind resistant, without affecting the softness, warmth, and comfort of the natural fibre.

By combining Loro Piana Rain System®, which makes water droplets slide off the surface of any material, with the company’s exclusive hydrophilic membranes that are resistant to both water and wind, garments are protected against all elements as well as dust, dirt and liquid stains.

Storm System® membranes can be applied to all Loro Piana fabrics. Their flexible and resilient qualities, along with absolute transpirability, ensure maximum comfort and freedom of movement, no matter the weather.
