Mario Gilberti Cashmere?

I just got a orange creamsicle coloured v-neck cashmere sweater. Fits nicely an feels great. No itching, I even get some itching from merino wool. Also no static from wearing, and no obvious pilling (although I think the colour contributes to that). It's Mario Gilberti brand, never heard of it, but it's 100% cashmere, and has this blurb in Italian and English: "This article is made of 100% Cashmere 2/28 the most precious natural fiber in the world, found precisely in the kashmir region, at the foot of Mimalaya, where the most selected Kel sheep breeding-farms are located." Some slightly off English, although that might be because it was made by Italian. I can't speak Italian so can't compare that section. Anyone know what the 2/28 means, and what the significance of Kel is?

I paid $129+tax Canadian for it and the MSRP listed was $298+tax Canadian. Does it sound like a good buy?
