What’s the softest material in the world? Chances are, when confronted with that question, you’ll likely answer either silk or cashmere. But Luca Faloni, icons of Italian style, are here to introduce you to another option; a super-soft hybrid of these two fabrics called silk-cashmere.
Created by the brand for the design of their Fine Knitwear Polo, the material is crafted from the prestigious Cariaggi Jaipur Collection — and guaranteed for outstanding softness and durability.
The brand first approached Cariaggi — the firm founded in the Montefeltro hills in 1958 — to create the fabric so the new polo could be both flattering and breathable. And, with cashmere sourced from Mongolia, the resulting materials drapes around your frame for a fitted look, whilst being lightweight enough to regulate your body temperature.
It is particularly suitable for travelling due to its lightweight properties, can handle a variety of temperatures, and is created using sophisticated technology and environmentally-friendly production methods in order to create the best product with the smallest carbon footprint.
Luca Faloni now offer two different garments in this pioneering fabric; a soft crew neck jumper and polo.
The former is the ultimate luxury wardrobe piece, an ultra-soft example of knitwear that blends 70% cashmere with 30% silk to create as versatile a jumper as you’ll ever need on summer evenings. The latter is slightly more styled; fitted and featuring cuffs and a three-button fastening at the neck.
