cashmere

history

Cashmere is the fleece of the cashmere goat, called “Hircus”, which lives in Inner Mongolia, China, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Its name comes from Kashmir, a historic region divided between India and Pakistan. The thinnest and finest part of the undercoat is called “duvet”.
Cashmere is collected during the spring moulting season when the goats naturally shed their winter coat. In some regions the hair is removed by hand with a coarse comb that pulls tufts of fiber from the animal as the comb is raked through the fleece .
It is estimated that an average yearly production per goat is 100/200 grams and the section of the fibers can vary from 14 to 18 microns.
Inner Mongolia produces the finest cashmere yarn and it is necessary to comb 2/3 goats to make a cashmere pull.

Cashmere fiber is very light and soft with an extraordinary insulation capability.
It is a natural material that loves water and can be washed by hand with a specific mild soap at a temperature not higher than 30°C. It shouldn’t be scratched.
Avoid wearing a cashmere pull for more than 2 days in a row.
When you wash your pull, don’t forget to dry it on an horizontal plane and don’t hang it because it can lose its original size and shape.
Cashmere fiber could produce a pilling reaction. Brush your pull carefully with a special comb to remove this pilling from its surface.
