originates from Persia as the word for Cashmere. The word took on new
meaning years ago with the introduction of this high quality product in
the United States. In the U.S. fashion industry, it has more commonly
come to represent a woven shawl of cashmere and silk. Products are
woven of luxurious cashmere, wool and silk fibers, creating the
warmest, softest and lightest of all fabrics. This fabric blend is
remarkably warm in spite of its lightweight.
can only come from Kashmir goats raised in the Himalayan mountain
region. The Himalayan goats produce such exquisite wool because of the
high elevations at which they live some 14,500 feet and above; where
temperatures rarely rise above minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit in Winter.
Cashmere comes from the goats soft underbelly down which is shed each
Spring. The Cashmere fibers are collected either from rocks and bushes
or brushed from the underbelly of the goat. The fibers are sorted,
cleaned and spun into yarn; then woven by master weavers and
individually piece dyed, using the highest quality Swiss dyes and
dried. Some of the underbelly fibers comes from the Capra Hircus goat,
and will responsibly be labeled "wool".
NO HARM COMES TO THE GOATS IN THE COLLECTION OF THE PASHMINA WOOL.
