6-ply cashmere. Only 200 articles in the world are made in 2019.
Elaborately handmade zip-neck pullover – from the British Royal Warrant holders, Corgi.
Only the best is good enough.
The cashmere comes from the world’s best sources: Inner Mongolia. It takes the fibres from 15 cashmere goats for just one zip-neck pullover – each fibre measuring at least 38-40mm and just 15-16 microns in diameter. In the UK, where the best cashmere spinning mills are traditionally found, the delicate yarn is spun into this 6-ply luxury cashmere. An exclusive material that will last and last: Lavishly soft and warming but non-pilling.
Knitted on traditional hand knitting machines – at Corgi in Wales.
Corgi is one of the few producers of 6-ply cashmere. It takes 10 hours to knit, sew and over-cast one zip-neck pullover. In classic rib pattern, with elaborately finished raglan sleeves, high stand-up collar with zip. A timeless pullover to wear indoors or outdoors.
Contemporary slim cut. Colour: Red/orange. Length in size 12: 55cm (21.7"). 100% cashmere. Hand wash only.
Noblesse oblige – from the supplier to the Prince of Wales household.
Rhys Jones founded his company which specialised in first-class knitwear in the Welsh village of Ammanford in 1892. Corgi still nurtures the traditional methods of artisan knitting. On the old traditional knitting machines, the knitters insert each thread individually by hand and sew the pieces together by hand. Afterwards, they wash each product very carefully, which makes it especially soft and fluffy. Each piece is a custom-made item and consequently, the supply is scarce. You can get knitwear from Corgi all over the world, but only in a handful of exquisite shops. From the outset, the use of only the best materials is what distinguishes the products of the prestigious house from other knitwear. In 1988 Corgi was given the honour of being the first manufacturer to receive the Royal Warrant to the Prince of Wales as the court supplier of knitwear and hosiery.
