Cashmere is the world’s most valuable natural material produced by the cashmere goat (Capra Hircus Laniger). Cashmere’s origins can be traced to Mongolia, China, Tibet, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. This wonderful material was only introduced in Europe at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. The name ‘Cashmere’ comes from the area in the Himalayas (in India) called Cashmere. The cashmere goats can live in temperatures down to -50 °C, and produce the wool in their bottom layers to protect themselves from the cold. This wool is collected through brushing in spring. Each goat carries approximately 150 g of this wool, which is collected once a year. In order to make one jumper, the wool of approximately 4 goats’ is needed. The thinness, softness, lightness and stableness of the material are cashmere’s typical qualities. It would be safe to say that no other material is as warm, as light, or as comfortable on people’s skin…
