Our highly exclusive Vicuña Nobilis scarf is produced from 100% of the finest Vicuña fibers available. Italian craftsmen, who's expertise has been built from generations of exclusive weaving traditions, have given their utmost attention to each of these Vicuña scarves. Creating nothing less than a true masterpiece, produced from the thinnest, warmest, rarest and most valuable animal fibers in the world.
The Vicuña fiber is sheared from the Vicuña, a miniature cousin of the llama, living on the chilly Andean plateaus. It has an unmatched status as the finest fabric on the planet. At the end of the fifteenth century, it was even against the law for common people to wear this fabric, due to its extreme value. Only royalties and highly respected men were allowed to cover themselves in this wool. The origin of this value comes from the fact that the animal Vicuña was considered to have magic powers granted by the gods. Next to that, as the animals have been hunted quite heavily, the population is scarce and they are now a protected animal species. Furthermore, a full-grown Vicuña only produces no more than 250 grams of wool in one year. The Vicuña yarn is the thinnest animal fiber in the world (10 microns, or 0,000 010 meter) and therefore the lightest. The Vicuña fiber is also famous for being one of the warmest due to its unique air insulating properties.
The cost of vicuña wool is up to 7 times higher than the cost of cashmere wool. Cashmere wool in turn is up to 14 times more expensive than regular wool. Fisher&Woordes is proud to be able to present this highly exclusive piece in a limited edition to its customers.
Vicuña - the Princess of the Andes & the fiber of the gods.
