It is only in the steppes of Mongolia that our 'heavenly gifts' can be found; this is how the shepherds of Mongolia affectionately call their goats.
Cashmere is the rarest fibre in the world and Mongolian cashmere goats are renowned for producing the finest yarn. The Mongols believe that goats are godsent and should live their days grazing in the shade of the mountains. Drawing on years of tradition the goat farmer knows how to tend his animals and we know how to make exquisite and seductive garments. Ultra-fine, light and blissfully warm, cashmere is the natural choice for chic, winter wear.
Cashmere goats render the finest of hair, which is only combed once a year by hand using a meticulous and careful method, in order to produce the highest quality cashmere, with only 500 grams collected per animal. The longer the length of the hair, the finer the yarn.
Solely high calibre and quality-tested-yarns - in accordance with set international standards - are utilised for the snug and soft garments offered by MADELEINE.
CHIC CASHMERE garments are not just impressive because of their lightness, pleasant heat retention capacity and dreamily soft feel, but also because of the variety of available colours and exclusive styles.
