    I purchased a pair of Brioni trousers today. The content label reads

    90% wool and 10% WS

    Anyone know what WS stands for.

    The fabric feels like a cashmere/wool blend

    The salesman at Neiman were clueless.

    WS = cashmere

    WA = Angora

    Interesting. How are these abbreviations arrived at? Are there others it would be good to know?

    Arigato,
