about the materials:
cashmere is a type of wool that is made from cashmere goats and pashmina goats.
cashmere is a natural fiber known for its extremely soft feel and insulating properties. cashmere fibers are very fine and delicate, and almost feel like silk to the touch. cashmere is significantly warmer and lighter than sheep’s wool, and is somewhat similar to mohair, which is made from angora goats. cashmere is often blended with other types of wool, like merino, to give it added weight, since cashmere fibers are very fine and thin.
merino wool is generally considered to be one of the least environmentally impactful textile products. the production of merino wool does not involve any artificial pesticides, fertilizers, or agrochemicals, and the majority of merino production occurs in areas where sheep can graze naturally without permanently harming local ecosystems. merino wool is naturally biodegradable, and it does not contribute to plastic pollution. furthermore, it is not necessary to subject merino fabric to flame retardants or other post-treatments that may involve harmful chemicals.
viscose is derived from the ‘cellulose’ or wood pulp from fast-growing, regenerative trees such as eucalyptus, beech, and pine, as well as plants such as bamboo, soy, and sugar cane. viscose, modal, lyocell, and tencel are all different types of rayons. even though the fibers are manufactured rather than ‘natural’, all types of rayon are comfortable and breathable to wear. rayons resist odor retention longer than cotton does. meaning more wear before washing and less washing is always an eco bonus!
viscose is versatile, breathable, drapes beautifully, and is very smooth. many pros, uh?
polyamide properties allow it to be a durable material, as well as resistant. polyamide and polyamide fiber blend have a firm position in swimwear/beachwear because they are easy to care for and have good wear properties: it is light, strong, quick-drying, and easy to clean. we know polyamide means using plastic... well, plastic can be recycled, right? we try to find the good side in everything so in this garment, we can only suggest to use it well, do not wash it too much and please when you don't want to use it anymore find another life for it. it can be used to recycle fibers!
