The origin of Cashmere

Cashmere is obtained by processing the hair of Hircus Goat, which lives on the Tibetan plateaus in the Himalayas and Mongolia.
This animal produces a particularly fine, soft and warm wool that allows it to protect itself from the rigors of the harsh winter with temperatures reaching even – 40°C. The longer and colder the winter, the greater growth of the cashmere fiber.
Every spring the cashmere goats begin to lose their hair and after the molt or when they are sheared, you need to select their hair since according to this selection, you will get a cashmere of higher quality. Once cleaned, these hairs are then woven into strands. The number of strands used generally gives a fairly precise idea on the thickness of the mesh: from fine (2 threads) to very thick (10-12 threads).

Each goat produces an average of 150 grams of cashmere per year and to make a sweater you need approximately 300 grams! It takes almost 4 years for a goat to produce enough cashmere.

The use of cashmere as a valuable fiber dates back to the ancient times. It is said that ancient Nepalese and Persian tribes used cashmere as a valuable source of isolation for their temples and mosques hundreds of years ago.

This practice has also spread rapidly in neighboring countries such as China, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey. In ancient times, having clothes such as cloaks and shawls hand made with cashmere meant surviving the cold winter months.
In the 14th century, this practice of making clothes from cashmere wool was also discovered by explorers who began to visit the East and discovered the number of properties cashmere had compared to the sheep’s wool they had been using until then.
