Linus throw is a unique luxury accessory made with the homonymous brushed silk fabric, combed after being woven to be soft and fluffy as cashmere while retaining the extraordinary qualities of silk. Linus fabric is part of our regular C&C Milano collection and was created by our designers in collaboration with our artisan weaver. The goal was to make a luxury fabric, using the most popular high-end fibre that looks and feels wonderful. Linus throw has a neat and tailored silhouette, very simple and contemporary, finished with a rolled hem.
Linus is available in one size: 140cm x 180cm
Silk is a protein fibre made from the chrysalis of silkworms. The strongest animal fibre is also the most refined and shimmering. The silk thread filament is obtained by unwinding the cocoons of the worms Bombyx mori in hot water and then spinning 4 to 8 filaments (long up to 1 km) together into a single thread. Silk is lightweight, takes dye very well and retains its shape. The characteristic shimmer is due to its triangular molecular structure that acts like a prism and refracts light.
