Italian term or phrase: finissaggi particolari
I am struggling with this paragraph as I'm not sure what 'finissaggi particolari' is referring to:

In primis, il miglior cashmere Loro Piana, puro o in mischia con finissime lane o il lino più pregiato, ma sempre caratterizzato da finissaggi particolari che ne esaltano la naturale sofficità.

Here is the whole paragraph for context:
I galles, i gessati, gli over vengono così ingranditi, dilatati, proporzionati alle dimensioni e alle forme di imbottiti e complementi d’arredo. Il risultato è formale, ma mai austero: al rigore delle linee e delle fantasie si contrappone infatti l’eccezionale morbidezza dei materiali utilizzati. In primis, il miglior cashmere Loro Piana, puro o in mischia con finissime lane o il lino più pregiato, ma sempre caratterizzato da finissaggi particolari che ne esaltano la naturale sofficità.

My guess is:
Even the best Loro Piana cashmere, pure or mixed with very fine wool or prized linen is always paired with finishings which bring out its natural softness.

I think I might be completely wrong though!

Thanks
