Halfway between Milan and Turin, at the foothills of the Alps lays Valle Mosso, a small town in the province of Biella. Since medieval times it has been the forefront of wool weaving and manufacturing. The long stretches of pastures and copious rivers have provided the the perfect grazing lands and energy resources to raise and cultivate fleece over the centuries.

In 1876, Giuseppe Botto Poala, affectionately known as “Pin” established the Lanificio Botto Giuseppe & Figli wool mill which today carries on the patented process of the traditional and skilled craftsmanship of the original founder.

Pin 1876 has created a distinctive collection of trans-seasonal scarves made in 100% cashmere using the exclusive spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing processes.
