The special fabric blend of high quality wool, alpaca and mohair properties determine the fine character of this short Persona coat by Marina Rinaldi, which has an exterior crafted from roughened, slightly hairy mohair twill. The checkered design, the lapel collar and the double-breasted style round off the classic chic profile.
Outer fabric: 32% acrylic, 26% wool, 16% polyester , 9% alpaca, 9% mohair, 8% polyamide | Lining: 100% acetate
Mohair: hair from angora goats is used to create this type of wool. The animals are generally shorn twice a year and care is taken to not harm the animal. The hair has a silky and elegant lustre and is non-pilling.
Alpaca: alpaca fleece comes from the South American alpaca which is shorn every two years. The fibre is fine, soft and slightly curly and is excellent for providing insulation.
Wool: A natural fibre, wool is an insulator which means it is very warm to wear. It's resilient and elastic and so garments can stretch comfortably with you, then easily return to their natural shape. It's non-allergenic, so good for people with skin sensitivity, is flame retardant and even dirt and stain resistant. What's more, it's very biodegradable, so at the end of its life you can happily dispose of your garment knowing it won't have an environmental impact.
Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.
