A transgenerational savoir-faire
The manifattura we work with only makes scarves, for the big luxury names. In the pure Italian tradition, its tradition goes back to 1947.
The capital of wool
We naturally turned to the wool capital, Biella and its region. Close to the Italian side of the Alps, Biella’s tradition in wool dates back to 1245 because of the extreme purity of its water, key to the quality of wool.
Merino wool from Zegna Baruffa
Here we chose a merino virgin wool called "extrafine" from one of the most famous spinners: Zegna Baruffa. But beware, our scarf is not less thick! In fact, "extrafine" qualifies the level of fineness (and therefore, softness) of the yarn. Here, we are talking about a wool of 19,5 micron finesse. About 5 times thinner than a hair! We guarantee it's very soft. And here is a secret: our spinner calls this wool "cashwool" - as its softness is similar to that of cashmere. Compared to a classic wool, merino wool will also be warmer.
Zegna Baruffa, King of wool
Zegna Baruffa is known around the world for the quality of her wool. Founded more than 160 years ago in Biella - the capital of wool in Italy - this spinning mill is an absolute reference of quality and know-how. She masters the whole chain, from the sourcing to the final dyeing of the threads.
Zegna Baruffa & its extrafine merino wool benefit from the best labels: OEKO-TEX, REACH and Tessile e Salute. So many certifications that guarantee the best respect for working conditions and ecological standards.
