So-called "fast fashion" where you buy new low-priced clothes every season. Because it leads to waste of resources, more and more people buy things that are not influenced by fashion even if the prices are a little high and wear them for a long time.

The Baby Cashmere collection of the fashion label "c-crest" launched in the fall / winter 2021 season to provide such basic and high quality knit items. The feature is the material Made in Japan Manufacturing.

First of all, about the material. Cashmere fiber is the hair growth of "cashmere goat". Cashmere goats born in the frigid regions have very fine downy hair under normal hair to protect themselves from the cold, which is the soft cashmere fiber. The amount of hair produced by a female goat is only about 80-100g per goat.

As the name suggests, the knitwear in the Baby Cashmere collection Only the first hair (baby cashmere) that is cut from a baby cashmere goat under 12 months old is used. Normal cashmere can be collected as many times as you like, but baby cashmere is a very rare and special hair that can only be collected once by a goat.

Even for humans, baby hair is fluffy and soft, which is very different from that of adults. Similarly, baby goat hair is very thin and soft.

Says c-crest designer Yoshinobu Takeuchi.

The quality of cashmere is determined by the thickness of the fiber, and the thinner it is, the softer and better the quality of cashmere. Recently, I've seen more cashmere products, and it's not as rare as it used to be. Cashmere, which is used in mass-produced products, is a natural material, so the thickness of the fibers varies. If even a little thick fiber is mixed, the feel will be rougher, and even with the same "100% cashmere" sweateater, there will be a big difference in comfort.

In that respect, the Sweaters from the Baby Cashmere collection are Only those around 14 micron (1 micron = 1/1000 mm) (usually wool thickness is 19 to 24 micron, alpaca is 24 to 31 micron) are selected and collected, and it has a very soft touch like no other. realization doing.
