Pashmina Info

Only in the highlands of the Himalayas, is the softest wool found in nature. Often known as the fiber of the King, Pashmina wool was worm by Moghul Emperors & Imported for 18th century aristocrats. This Indigenous craft has managed to survive by local trades man who consider this regal fabric as precious as jewels. It is said to be eight ties warmer than sheep wool. The Pashmina fiber is derived from the mountain goat Capra hircus (locally called CHYANGRA), which is native to the Himalayan belt, around & above 10,000 feet above sea level. The Pasham is the fine inner (under) growth over which the goat has another layer of thick & coarse dead fibers.

The Pashm is profusely mixed up with these dead fibers. It is hand gathered with a special comb each goat produces 3-8 ounces of wool annually. It is an extremely complicated technique to extricate pure Pasham from the beds of the coarser dead fibers into which the real fiber is deeply embedded. Unless fibers are cleaned up to 98% purity before hand spinning, the unique texture of Pashmina doesn't emerge. Having studied the genesis of this unique natural gift to Humanity for decade the Nepalese Pashmina manufacturers have been involved with a determination to revive the heritage of Nepalese Pashmina craft with the ancient zeal. As the demand of such precious materials has increased the raw material is not available in own country, hence Chinese Pashmina yarns are depended highly to meet the demand in the exportation.

Chinese white Cashmere yarn is world famous in quality & softness, which has been presently using by prestigious fabric production unit all over the world. Pashmina is also quite unusual in that it actually becomes softer and more comfortable with each use, actually making it gentler on your skin each and every time you have the luck to wear it. With proper care, the diamond fabric will last a lifetime or more. This is evident in the fact that pashminas have been handed down from generation to generation in royal and wealthy families throughout the world.
