EL CLASSICO - CASHMERE SWEATER
TENLEGEND's premiere v-neck cashmere sweater, El Classico, is just that - classic design, using only the finest Italian spun cashmere. Most agree that cashmere is one of the world’s most luxurious materials, but not all cashmere is created equal. There are some major, and subtle, differences between a high quality, long staple, finely spun cashmere, and what's typically found in big box chains. Differences can be seen in the retention of color and shape, and felt in the softness, warmth, piling and overall longevity of the piece.
Our decision to exclusively use only the finest cashmere made by the Italian maestros of wool, Cariaggi, was due to their commitments to extreme quality standards and environmental responsibility. With almost 60 years of experience and three generations of successful product research and innovation, Cariaggi is known as having the highest quality spinning in the world.
The pristine quality of Cariaggi's yarns starts with a careful selection of the best fibers of Capra Hircus Laniger from Inner Mongolia. Learn more about what goes into the making of TENLEGEND cashmere here.
Premium quality cashmere is not only the finest, softest and warmest yarn, but it is also a very durable product, which can easily last 10 years and over 200 wears when taken care of properly. Cashmere, when authentic and of high quality, is also extremely expensive due to the difficult production process and its scarcity. On average a cashmere goat generates only 150 grams of fibers per year. In total only 6000 tons of cashmere are produced per year, a very small fraction compared to 1.3 million tons of normal wool produced.
The best yarns, from companies like Cariaggi, with the whitest, longest and finest fibers can cost over 200€ per kg (2.2 lb.), with one pullover requiring an average weight of 300 grams (0.67 lb.) of material. Once you add in the cost for knitting and finishing, packaging and logistics, it becomes clear that anyone selling knit products at very low prices took some shortcuts that can’t be compensated by volume.
In recent years, the market has been diluted with the emergence of lower cost and often much lower quality producers from low cost countries. Investing in cashmere products elevates the longevity and luxuriousness of your wardrobe, giving it a truly classic style. These garments will keep their quality and shape longer than wool knitwear, therefore earning back your initial investment over the years, and giving you a lower cost per wear. TENLEGEND cashmere is fitted in a Euro slim cut.

Just amazing sweater
Just amazing sweater. So soft, so chic. The cut is perfect. and that box! amazing
Wow factor. Big time.
I’m always looking for brands that are totally dedicated to the highest quality. I found TENLEGEND while reading soccer blogs, so totally by accident, but SO COOL! Glad I did. No clue why no other brand has connected soccer with luxury apparel, but these guys hit the nail on the head. Love the look, the content and just bit the bullet and ordered this cashmere sweater… WOW. Shipped super fast (overnight) and showed up in a super chic matte black keepsake box with a pitch diagram inside the lid. Super classy. The sweater is soft, warm, mid-weight and definitely high quality cashmere and craftsmanship. Worth the money. Total fan.
