The Capra Hircus Himalayan mountain goats live at an altitude of over 10,000 feet. They survive the cold winters by growing a short fine inner coat of hair, renowned as one of the world's softest and warmest fibers. During the spring molting season, the ultra soft and fleecy hair from the chest, neck and under-belly is hand-combed and collected. It is important to stress that no animals are harmed during this process. Each hair has a thickness of 15 microns (human hair is 75 microns) - the secret to its warmth. It is often combined with silk for added durability.
They are available in a choice of 70% pashmina, and 30% silk or 80% pashmina and 20% silk. The higher the pashmina content the more luxurious the product.
If you require 100% pashmina shawls these are available on specialty order, please contact us for details.
We carry the following products in a wide range of solid colors (see color chart below).
Is it genuine pashmina?
Test: Pull a few small fibres from the item, roll into a ball, and light a match to it. If it smells like animal hair when burnt and turns to ash it is the real thing. If it melts into a ball, it has synthetic fibres added and is not the real thing .
