Scarf is made in Italy on a blend of Cashmere (2%) Modal (98%)

Modal is extracted from the fibre of a beechwood tree. The beech tree is an ancient, extremely resistant, deep-rooting plant. Beech forests thrive in Northern and Central Europe and have shaped the landscapes of these regions for centuries.
