A new Loro Piana Excellence
The Gift of Kings®: this was the name Merino wool was known by in eighteenth century Europe, when the King of Spain gifted it to the Elector of Saxony and the royal families of France, Britain and Holland.
And now, three centuries later, it is the exclusive gift that Loro Piana dedicates to its clients in the form of garments crafted from the world’s very finest wool.
Measuring only 12 microns, this wool is finer than cashmere, as light as vicuña and only available in extremely limited quantities.
This ambitious project reflects Loro Piana’s constant quest for outstanding quality in the field of noble fibres and its total dedication to excellence, which once more begins from the selection of truly unique raw materials.
