About Cashmere


 

 

Cashmere is a rare and precious fibre with extraordinary traits, which is obtained exclusively from the fleece of the Hircus goat, native to the mountainous regions of Mongolia.

The Hircus goat will survive hostile environments which are bitterly cold winters and torrid summers, this because it developed beneath its coarser outer coat an underfleece called "down", which we know as Cashmere. This incredibly light, soft and fine fiber measures around 14-15 microns (thousandths of a millimetre) and has the incredible capability of maintaining thermal insulation against both cold and hot climates.

This is why Cashmere is a most precious fibre, because of the small quantities of down the goat produces each year, which is approximately 150-200 grams!!
