Founded as a small family business, Maglificio Gran Sasso is now an international icon of Made in Italy fashion. Its story begins in 1952 in Sant'Egidio alla Vibrata, a small village south of the border between Marche and Abruzzo, thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of the four brothers Nello, Eraldo, Alceo and Francesco Di Stefano.
Today Maglificio Gran Sasso is a company that ranks amongst the leading players in the production and marketing of knitwear and casual wear. The high quality of products is guaranteed by the expert craftsmanship involved in all stages of the production: every product is hand-made, using techniques of craftsmanship, to become an exclusive and distinguishable item. In recent years also the third generation has effectively joined the company and continues to maintain that balance of tradition and innovation of the product that always distinguishes the brand. The Company also has an industrial dyeing plant and a showroom in via Montenapoleone in Milan, one of the most fashionable locations in Italy.
The complex is characterised by a rational and minimal design concept of architect Guido Canali, master in governing construction types already tested, turning them into elements of a coherent language of great civil dignity, that fully reflects his customers' spirit.
He is awarded an Honorable Mention at the 2009 Milan Triennal Prize "Medaglia d'Oro all'Architettura" (Golden Medal for Architecture).
The Extra Fine Merino wool is the fibre obtained from the Australian breed of sheep of the same name.
It is made exclusively from fibre with fineness of less than 19.5 microns, it has features that provide exceptional yarn elasticity, extremely brilliant and solid colors, and an overall unequaled softness in the finished garment.
In fact, after sheep-shearing, only the parts of the fleece that have the best characteristics in terms of finesse, medium height, style and minimal presence of black and colored hairs and vegetable fibers are chosen.
Garments made with Extra Fine Merino wool are precious, unique and above all long-lasting.
These garments can be immediately recognized by touching them: let your fingers glide smoothly over the surface of a pullover and you will feel its particular softness. The purchase of this garment is a choice of absolute quality.
