Worth knowing about this extraordinary product:
Vikunja - finer than cashmere.
Vikunjas belong, like the Guanaco, to the genus of the Vicugnas. The graceful relatives of the camels and alpacas, live in a small, protected population in the Peruvian Andes above 4,000 m. Their wool is the finest animal hair in the world. Each fiber measures only 11-12 microns; even kashmir with 15-17 microns is comparatively coarse. The vikunjas are only blended at the back and partly at the neck every two years. The yield Per Schur and per animal is only 125-150 grams. 43-47% of the best fibers are still sorted out by hand. An endless effort which is worthwhile for this incomparable quality. The workmanship requires mastery of the art of the web, in order to make this stole absolutely smooth from Vikunja.
