about pashmina

Pashmina is an ancient Persian word for wool. Today, it has evolved as the best cashmere available on the earth. Pashmina is finely cultivated from the underbelly hair of a rare breed of goats found in high mountainous region elevated at over 14,500 feet above the sea level. These mountain goats are biologically termed as "Capra Hircus". These goats so to escape the harshness of cruel winter, during which the temperatures descend to as low as minus 25° Fahrenheit (minus 30° Centigrade), grow extremely thin and shinny inner coat of hair on their underbelly under the coarse of exterior hair. The goats during spring naturally shed their underbelly hair. The fibers (hair) that are collected are called "Pashmina" and the diameter of a hair is over five times small than a human hair. The fibers are then sorted, cleaned and spun into Pashmina Yarn. The remarkable fact is that "one goat in one spring produces a maximum of 90 grams of Pashmina, and thus, requiring three goats to make one Pashmina shawl."
