THE FULL STORY

Mongolian Goat

Our cashmere is ethically sourced from the native goat of the Mongolian plateaux. Sustainability of our supply chain is critical and we have been buying our fibre from the same farms for many years.

Scottish Cashmere fibres
The best fibres are carefully selected and sent to our mill in Scotland which was established over 200 years ago. Here the coarser hairs are removed to ensure only the finest and longest fibres make it through to the next stage so that our cashmere is Grade A.
Scottish Cashmere colours
Brora’s renowned colours are blended using the latest technology combined with traditional expertise. Up to seven shades are used to create each unique Brora colour.
Scottish Cashmere Cones
The dyed cashmere is put through a carding machine to separate and smooth out the fibres before it is spun into yarn of varying plys ready for knitting.
Hand finishing Cashmere clothing
Using skills passed down through generations of Scottish families, our talented craftspeople at the mill set to work knitting jumpers, cardigans, hats, scarves and more. There are over 50 processes involved in any one of our cashmere designs.
