$4,000+ per yard of fabric makes a $70,000 suit, and the King of Morocco has three on order. Vicuna is the most expensive cloth in the world, and Scotland’s Holland & Sherry has woven the first 100% worsted Vicuna fabric.
Holland & Sherry weavers have supplied this fabric to the finest tailors on Savile Row and Parisian couture garment makers for over 170 years. Holland & Sherry spent 5 years gathering the wool from the Vicuna, which is found only in the highest Andes Mountains. The Vicuna produces only a very little of the fine wool and can only be shorn every three years.
The company only has enough Vicuna fabric for 18 suits in black, midnight and natural.
