Nanocashmere®
Lora & Festa Nanocashmere® modifies cashmere at the molecular level by attaching hydrophobic nano-structures to individual fibers that elevate liquids, causing them to bead and roll right off the knitted surface.

The technology works on the nano scale - that is, on the molecular level - to protect each cashmere fiber Lora & Festa Nanocashmere® repellent technology is inspired from the water repellency and self-cleaning behaviours of certain plants in nature.
