STYLE & SUBSTANCE
N.Peal cashmere is truly special because we have total control of the process, from goat to the finished luxury garment you see in our stores. We can trace our cashmere right back to the individual herders who tend their goats on the vast steppes of Mongolia. We understand the regional variation in quality. We set strict quality standards for the colour, fineness and length of the fibre we collect. We know every process of production from sorting to scouring, dehairing, dyeing, spinning, twisting, knitting, linking and finishing.
Cashmere is grown by Capra Hircus goats and the coats producing the best cashmere in the world are located in Inner Mongolia.
This is because the herders have learned the best ways to care for their animals over many generations, but also because their area of Mongolia experiences extremely harsh winters, leading the goats to grow a longer and finer winter coat.
Temperatures in Mongolia can reach -40 degrees Celsius. In order the survive the goat must grow its long winter coat. When the weather begins to warm up in the spring, the goat will shed its winter cashmere coat and it’s then that the herders comb the animals to harvest the cashmere.
We use only the longest and finest fibres for our knitwear and it's only through controlling the entire process that we can guarantee the highest quality luxury cashmere.
