OUR FIBRE

Using only biodegradable & environmentally sustainable fibres.

Over the last 12 months we have travelled the globe in search of natural & ethically sustainable fibres with the intention of changing the way knitwear is consumed globally. Together we can lead the ‘slow fashion’ revolution, working towards more responsible fibre choices across the entire fashion industry.

Sustainably sourced Mongolian cashmere.

PURE CASHMERE

Sustainably sourced Mongolian cashmere.

Our cashmere is sourced ethically from Inner Mongolia. All our cashmere goats are reared in happy, healthy and cruelty-free environments.

We only use premium grade, long filament cashmere and do not use Cashmere that exceeds 15 microns (in other words, extremely fine!) Our yarns are double twisted, to ensure a consistent quality is achieved. Cashmere fleece is taken from the underbelly, Winter coat of the Cashmere goat, collected during the warmer months when the fleece is naturally shed. No goats were harmed in the making of your MIA FRATINO garment.

Happy healthy goats = premium quality, long-filament cashmere.
