That wonderful top-to-toe look…
all together now-
heavenly sweaters and skirts
Kharafleece: purest virgin
worsted wool, nylon and
miracle vicara… cashmere soft…
wrinkleproof. And stunning sox for an echo!
The question in my mind was what the heck is vicara? I had seen the fiber listed on sweaters from the 1950s, but I’d never really given it a lot of thought. As it turns out, vicara is a protein fiber that is extracted from corn. Those twentieth century chemists were nothing if not creative.
As were the ad copy writers. See how they tied together vicara and cashmere? It’s enough to make you think there was a vicara goat.
