This magic word cashmere sounds to us so temptingly exciting when you recall this gentle, light, unrealistically soft and at the same time very warm sweater that warms you even in fierce frosts. It is woven from the finest threads of twill weave, which are several times thinner than a human hair.
The origin of the word "cashmere" is associated with a paradise in the land of Kashmir Valley, the traditional place of its production, which has a thousand-year history.
Yarn for cashmere products is woven in handmade work from the undercoat (fluff) of a particular breed Himalayan goats. The fluff is combed with special crests also in handmade technique once a year during moulting. One animal gives only 150 grams of fluff.
