Ferla brings the slow back into fashion, creating fabrics with artisanal precision unlike anyone else in the business.

Creativity and technical know-how has given Ferla a distinctive style that changes with the seasons while staying true to who they are and reflecting the Biella tradition as a whole. Unlike any other weaver, they’ve set themselves apart with their signature Baby Alpaca fabric. At just 1.5% of all alpaca produced, Baby Alpaca stands miles above the rest when it comes to its softness, purity and versatility, making it a worthy alternative to even the softest cashmere. And, as the sole weaver of this prized fabric, Ferla has set their name in stone within the history of Biella’s weaving heritage.

Fabrics that evolve

Not ones to idle in the conventional, the Ferla mill's use of vibrant colors and shades that accentuate textures have given way to bold and highly refined fabrics over the years. Among our collection from this Biella mill's fabrics you'll find lustrous silk blends, richly textured Giro Inglese weaves, and, perhaps most famously, their warm, ultra-soft baby alpaca signature fabrics.
