Only cashmere goats living in cashmere yarn
the Himalayas have luxurious and comfortable cashmere scarves. Goats have adapted to life in high altitude and bad weather conditions. In their natural habitat, the temperature drops to about -40 °C. They developed a soft and thick coat to protect them from these conditions. Cashmere wool collection begins at the beginning of spring, when goats will shed their rich and soft undercoat.
Traditionally, cashmere wool is collected by collecting tufts that can be found on rocks and bushes rubbed by goats to get rid of the warm winter mulch. Locals collect these precious tufts and sell them to processing plants. However, the most important part of the production material comes from farms that collect wool through carding.Only the bottom hair is used to produce cashmere, because the upper part of the hair contains too hard fibers, not suitable for woven or knitted garments. It is worth mentioning that only about 150 grams of cashmere can be collected from a goat, which means that multiple goats are required to produce a piece of clothing.
About 15,000 tons of cashmere are collected every year around the world, which is a rare, precious and high-quality fabric.The raw material cashmere is washed and sorted (poor quality fibers are discarded). Then use them to weave the yarn, then dye and dry. Next is the most important part of this process-making the final product. This is done manually, or some steps are done by a machine.
The products offered in our shop are hand-knitted (shawl, cashmere) or knitted (sweater). Some basic series of sweaters are an exception, as they are still made from the highest quality cashmere fibers, but production has been partially automated.Each product is an original after hours of honest labor. The production of cashmere has a long tradition in Asia, because warm wool is a necessity for the residents of the Himalayas and surrounding areas.
