WOOL AND GRACE

Prestige (Singapore) - - AGENDA -

loro piana el­e­vates its new col­lec­tion with rare Merino wool chris­tened The Gift of Kings. Back in the 18th cen­tury, Span­ish sov­er­eigns gifted pairs of th­ese sheep to seal pacts and forge al­liances. Mea­sur­ing only 12 mi­crons, the noble fi­bre is finer than cash­mere and as light as vicuña, which makes it su­per-soft and exquisitely fluid. It also means that this ex­cep­tional wool — the prod­uct of a col­lab­o­ra­tion with select breed­ers in Aus­tralia and New Zealand some 30 years ago — is ex­tremely limited in quan­tity.
