Cashmere is the fine undercoat fibres produced by cashmere goats (Capra hircus), an animal living in the Himalayas and mountainous regions of Kashmir, Asia. Due to the extremely cold winters the cashmere goat has developed an undercoat of remarkably thin hair fibres, which acts as an insulator and keeps the animal warm even at extremely low temperatures.
Pure cashmere garments are unique, as cashmere wool fibers are among the most exclusive and finest natural fibers known to man
Properties that characterize clothes made of 100% cashmere is that they are:
remarkably soft and comfortable to wear
non-itching, as compared to al lot of other wool, and it may be worn directly onto bare skin even for newborn babies
warm and insulating when it's cold, whereas during high temperatures and summer the cashmere actually has a cooling effect
softened even more over time. You may wash your cashmere garment and it gets even softer and more comfortable over time
Cashmere is collected during the spring moulting season when the goats naturally shed their winter coat. Everything is done manually, with no machines involved and it´s completely harmless to the goats. It´s safe to say that cashmere is renewable natural fiber. Kashmina buys only the highest quality white cashmere - from Inner Mongolia. For years we have been testing our cashmere wool, to ensure we have the highest quality possible.
100% cashmere garments will be even softer and more comfortable over the years and is clearly an investment for life
