Cashmere is a refined fibre obtained from small goats raised in Asia; the best cashmere comes from Iran, Mongolia, Tibet and Afghanistan. The name originates from the historical region of Kashmir, situated between India, Pakistan and China. Cashmere is smooth, silky and velvety, giving a warm and fluffy feeling on the skin. This luxury fibre is obtained by combing the soft undercoat of the goat by hand during the moulting season in the springtime; the annual estimated production per animal is only around 150 grams. Often associated with wool due to some similar characteristics, cashmere is much stronger, lighter and can be up to three times more insulating than sheep wool.
