Loro Piana Zenit Fabric: Cashmere and Chinchilla?? Ran across this fabric. I never heard of a cashmere-chinchilla blend; anyone know the % of chinchilla in this type of fabric?

It is definitely more expensive than their 100% cashmere due to the rarity of chinchilla fiber in yarn form. In fact, this is the only yarn that i know of that has this fiber content. (And there are over 111,000 different commercially available yarns out there. So, super rare)
As for it's benefits, well...it''s mostly novelty. It's similar to angora in terms of airy/loft so that's a plus (warm but light)
