Super "200s" suit? Are we talking about cashmere or Australian merino wool? And what micron count are we talking? I don't believe in Australian merino that a Super 200s, which would be around the 13/14 micron range, has been made commonly available yet. One can reference Holland & Sherry's discussion at http://www.hollandandsherry.com/text...superfine.html
Also, the Natural Fibers Information Center at the University of Texas/Austin ran this article not too long ago: WILD AND WOOLYIn the never-ending quest to find the world's most precious wool, both Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana are working on new endeavors that would make even Dolly envious. For years Zegna has sponsored its own wool competition to find the finest sheep from Australian herders. At the last edition, one sheep measured in at 11.7 microns, and there were several others fleeces coming in around 12 microns. Now Zegna says it's planning to take the search global. "The scope of our competition has always been to find and collect the finest fleece ever produced, if you will, the crÃ¨me della crÃ¨me of the best herds," said Paolo Zegna. "After Australia, we're hoping to expand our competition to the rest of the world." Of course it's not just Zegna pushing sheep to where they've never gone before. Loro Piana is also upping the ante. After buying the 2002 world-record-setting bale, which measured 12.5 microns, Pier Luigi Loro Piana said the company recently got its hands on an even finer lot. The new bale has a fineness of 12.1 microns and is large enough to supply fabric for 50 custom-made suits.
It looks pretty apparent that only a few people in the world are dealing with this quality of wool. Granted, Kiton is certainly in the upper echelon, but I would be cautious about how loosely some companies are throwing around the designation "Super". If any company touts that they have lots of Super 200s available, you can be pretty sure it's more marketing than reality.

When fibers get as small as we're talkling about here, the very art of spinning becomes nearly impossible. Cashmere, of course, has great tensile strength, and as such some of these peculiarities may differ from merino wool.
