The Anatomy of Cashmere:
Cashmere is not derived from a specific breed of goat,
as much as a specific part; generally the underbelly and throat. It is the delicate undercoat
grown, primarily in Mongolia, to provide warmth and insulation during the harsh winter months.
The shedding of the undercoat takes place naturally,
or is combed out to provide the cashmere fiber.
The purest Cashmere is 8x warmer than wool
yet significantly lighter.
The best cashmere is like fine wine…
it gets better with age and wear!
