Cashmere is the luxury fibre par excellence, synonym of classic and elegant style. It is sourced from the undercoat of the cashmere goat (Capra Hyrcus), native to Kashmir and currently living on the mountains of India, China, Mongolia, Afghanistan and Iran. The finest Cashmere comes from Inner Mongolia. In this harsh climate the cashmere goat grows a warm and extremely light undercoat, made of fibres of a fineness often less than 14-16 microns.
It is one of the finest and softest natural fibres and one of the most valuable, also due to the low yield, with the annual production being only 200 gr per head.
