Our origin dates back to 1997 and we start the marketing of some product in merinos wool, operation for understanding the knitwear world and all its environment of natural and noble garments as well as cashmere. In 2002, the continues searching for innovative products it has taken us to the manufacture of mixed cashmere sweaters, completely designed and useful for Canary Islands market. We made different yarns and materials up to 60% of cashmere, silk and wool merinos. SION-YARN born in 2006, a model firm to modernize constantly the production of its products, giving competence and right experience to take advantage for its future. Our company, SION-YARN SL, is a company dedicated to the production and manufacture of mainly woolen cashmere garments. We have available a wide range of raw materials and clothing formats, improving every year some model and sizes, mainly retouched to satisfy all requirements of tourists in the canary islands.
Cashmere comes from the soft undercoat of goats bred to produce the wool. It takes more than two goats to make a single two-ply sweater. The fibers of the warming undercoat must be separated from a coarser protective top coat during the spring molting season, a labor-intensive process that typically involves combing and sorting the hair by hand. These factors contribute to the relatively low global production rate of cashmere—approximately 60% less of pure cashmere annually than the sheep’s wool.
But not all cashmere is equally luxe: The texture, color, and length of the fibers all affect manufacturing and pricing. Naturally, whiter cashmere fibers require less dye, diminishing the damage that coloring causes to its natural softness. Quality also depends on the region in which the wool is collected. In Inner Mongolia, for instance, the winters are harsh and the goats have a more meager diet, which produces the finer hair seen in the highest quality garments. Still, even the best raw material can be compromised by a sub-par finishing process. The fineness of a cashmere item comes down to that process, as the spinning and weaving of the fabric affects the look, feel, and touch of the final product.
Cashmere is nature’s finest insulation fibre. A sustainable, renewable, biodegradable natural fibre with excellent performance characteristics it is ideally suited for both active and leisure wear: lightweight, breathable, odour resistant and very soft to touch.
