Wrapping Christmas in the cashmere softness
Luxury meets comfort in the Lanificio Colombo gift catalogue Christmas 2017 will be in the spirit of glamour and comfort. Lanificio Colombo introduces its Christmas Gifts catalogue in the magic atmosphere of an Alpine lodge, where soft knitwear items, scarves, beanies and plaid blankets, all rigorously made of cashmere, are lit up by the lights of light lanterns. The most precious noble fibres become special gifts for the loved ones. Whats lovelier than a downy present, capable of embracing the dearest ones in a soft and warm hug? Among the "must-have" gifts of this Christmas certainly is Kid cashmere. The skillful expertise of Lanificio Colombo has made possible to create an exclusive fibre that is even thinner than traditional cashmere as it is obtained from Hircus goat kids only. The downy and soft underfleece is gently combed just once, during the first year of life of the goat. Each kid provides only a few grams of the precious fibre that is remarkably finer than the one combed from adult goats. From this exclusive yarn Colombo's skilled artisans craft exclusive knitwear garments that come in the natural shades of cashmere. Among the wide range of gift ideas there are also precious accessories: from the classic fishermans rib beanies to the most sophisticated half brioche stitch and cable knitted beanies. These accessories can be matched with coordinated, super-soft cashmere gloves in the same colours, perfect to stay warm adding a stylish touch to the coldest Winter days. The Christmas catalogue also includes a wide selection of scarves in different sizes and featuring a large variety of designs. All the scarves are carefully manufactured in the plant in Borgosesia, at the feet of the Piedmont Alps, where they also undergo strict quality tests. The scarves are all made of precious fibres directly selected by the Colombo family in Inner Mongolia, so to guarantee a genuine short-production-chain approach. These precious accessories also feature the exclusive "marble effect" - obtained by a special finishing made by vegetable theasels -, that adds sparkle and three-dimensionality to the surface. Striped and tartan pattern scarves are just perfect for contemporary men, whereas the sophisticated cashmere double scarves, ideal for gently playing with contrasts, wonderfully suit classy women. The impalpable cashmere and silk stoles, truly light and soft and available in a wide range of beautiful colours, are also perfect to make outstanding presents. The Home collection gift ideas complete the Christmas catalogue with soft blankets and plaid blankets, that come in elegant natural colours but also in more vivid and cheerful tones. Lastly, the precious cashmere slippers are perfect for parents or grandparents, as they are ideal to make their relax time all the more enjoyable with the precious touch of noble fibres.
