this is lanapa
66% Premium Merino Wool by Zegna Baruffa and 34% Premium Hemp by Opera Campi.
They are woven together through a new technique we call "Flex".
best wool since 1850
Zegna Baruffa selects the best sheeps, and produces the best wool, since 1850. We cannot compete with them. So we have chosen one of their best yarns: the Merino Cashwool©.
It's sourced from the wild Australian farms, spinned in Biella (Italy) through a patented technique inspired to the Cashmere traditional process. That's why it's called "Cashwool".
the finest hemp
While we sourced Wool from the suppliers we trust, the Hemp component of "Lanapa" is obviously the material you have always worn: the "Canapa" by Opera Campi, the finest and softest Hemp ever spinned.
a brilliant result
Opera Campi "Canapa" and Zegna Baruffa Wool yarns are merged together through our creative technique called "Flex".
A serious issue we had with this fabric was dyeing. Traditional dyeing techniques were not solid enough and the final color looked "faded".
Our dyeing experts overturned years of knowledge to create a new technique to dye, in one single yarn, both Hemp and Merino Wool. Through a new process, we obtained a cheaper but better dyeing.
