We have been handing down Tuscan textiles for three generations
There are five basic steps in cashmere production: harvesting, sorting, shearing and spinning.
Harvesting is performed manually with a comb during the animal's natural seasonal moult in late spring. Also the sorting and grading of the animal's hair are also always manual operations. After being sorted according to the various characteristics, the fibre is washed to remove dirt, grease and any remaining plant matter. Only after this step is the fibre ready to be spun into yarn.
At Dalle Piane Cashmere, we prefer two-ply yarns that ensure stability, resistance to washing and less pilling.
The process of creating a knitted fabric, known as knitting, is carried out on a rectilinear frame loom.
The resulting fabrics are left to settle for a day to regain their natural shrinkage following tension and elongation caused by the weaving process.
ASSEMBLY OF GARMENTS
Assembly the stage in which the various parts of the garment are assembled: front, back, sleeves, edges and collars.
We use tools such as sewing machines, cutters and linking machines, which require highly specialised operators to guarantee an excellent level of quality of the finished garments.
WASHING AND IRONING
All our garments are washed during a phase known as 'fulling', which gives the garment the customary softness typical of cashmere.
The final ironing completes and enhances all previous operations. The garment is then bagged and ready to be sold.
