Cervelt™ is an extremely rare natural down fibre from the New Zealand Red Deer.
Its amazing thermal and wicking properties remained unknown until the New Zealand company, Douglas Creek Ltd, spent eight years developing and perfecting the process of turning this fine winter coat into a luxury textile fibre.
Only 20 grams of pure Cervelt™ can be collected from a single deer and with current world production being maintained at a limited amount each year, it justifies its description as the "Diamond of luxury fibres”.
Cervelt™ is a 13 micron fibre which is finer than the finest cashmere. The diameter is consistent throughout its length, with a very low coefficient of variation meaning that all Cervelt™ fibre is consistently superfine.
The fibre is not straight, but has a wavy curl producing a yarn which is
strong and resilient. The fibre retains its warmth even when the fabric or knitwear is very fine. These incredible natural properties have defined Cervelt™ as the most sought after new natural fibre in the world and a personal favourite of leading luxury brands.
