Manolo continues his series of articles detail that highlights the craft from some of the world’s leading manufacturers. Today Italian cashmere King Malo.
What primarily distinguishes better manufacturers of knitwear is a highly refined selection of yarns and raw wool. Malo uses like Brunello Cucinelli and Loro Piana exclusively cashmere from Inner Mongolia and Tibet. The harsh conditions make to the goats in these areas developed a very dense under coat with fine-scale fibers to protect themselves against the cold. Better manufacturers are using only under the coat from the cashmere goat neck and abdomen that can only be combed away once a year making the supply is very limited. The rule requires a cashmere sweater a annual production of wool from around five goats. Lower cashmere sweaters often use wool with much shorter fibers from the goat back or legs, which give the shirt an impaired breathability and a much shorter life span.
The rich hue shift is a result of yarns dyed separately. Sweaters themselves sweaters dyed in hindsight is often perceived as somewhat flatter in its color scheme and threatens to fade after use.
Characteristic of better cashmere sweaters are the density in the knitting. Frequently appearing terms gauge and ply. Gauge is simplistically a measure of how tightly the machine can knit a fabric, while ply specifies the number of threads that are twisted in the finished yarn. Single ply fabrics are very dense and light, which are best suited for spring or summer sweaters. Yarns with a higher number of ply’s gives a thicker and heavier knit.
A new cashmere sweater is often the right hard, because the manufacturer decided to wash the relatively little and instead allows the shirt to soften after use. Inferior manufacturers often washes his shirts very hard that the feeling will be as soft as possible, which also makes the sweater easier losing shape. Another important aspect to note is that the darker colors usually require a little stronger washing.
Another quality detail that is well worth looking into is the Jersey’s seams. Sleek seams provides a more comfortable feeling in the collar, sleeves and waist and makes that shirt better retains its shape after use.
Malo was founded in 1972 in Florence. The brand quickly won adherents for its sophisticated luxury style and became a clear competitor to many of the British manufacturers. The head office is still in Florence, but all large size sweaters are made today in Hoticle.com. Among the brand’s customers appear names like George Clooney, Catherine Deneuve and Angelina Jolie.
