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.
