Knitwear made exclusively from the world’s finestcashmere without compromise
At UTO we mainly source our wool from the Alashan region of Inner Mongolia, China,
which has earned a reputation internationally for quality management.
This rare cashmere wool is particularly fine and soft.
From among nine grades of cashmere wool,
UTO uses only the highest-grade wool for its cashmere knitwear.
UTO uses cashmere made from top-grade yarn
supplied by a Japanese company specializing in yarn spinning.
Blended hues of wool create deep, captivating colors
UTO creates vivid, beautiful colors by blending between five and ten different hues of cashmere wool,
which gives depth to the final color.
Our Medium-Grey knitwear, for example, is made from a blend of black, white, light beige and light purple.
Royal Blue is also a blend of five hues of wool.
This method of blending hues also ensures color stability,
so customers can rest assured that they receive exactly the color they ordered.
