Holland & Sherry, the Scotland-based premium fabric weaver and cloth merchant founded in 1836, has had a reputation for making fine quality suits for a very long time. Now, the storied firm has woven the world’s first 100 percent worsted spun Vicuna fabric, which happens to be the most luxurious and expensive in the world at over $4000 per yard. The material comes from the Vicuna Llama, a rare animal producing tiny amounts of wonderful wool. It took H&S about 5 years to gather enough of the special yarn and another one and a half years to develop the unique cloth.
H & S have woven sufficient material to make just 18 suits from the fabrics, which is justified if it costs $50,000 per suit. The suits are available in 3 colors, black, midnight, and natural. The first among the line up of customers to place the order is the King of Morocco. The suits are truly unique, exclusive, and luxurious since they possess a texture that makes them feel softer than cashmere.
