Cashmere

Cachemire is a precious fiber taken from the undercoat of a particular and rare Himalayan goat called “Hircus”.

To survive to the strict temperature of their habitat, where in winter there are up to – 40°, they have developed this particular fur. Under the external hair, long and resistant, they have another one made up really thin and soft fibers, the “Duvet”. This beautiful soft and woolly material is picked up in spring by brushing manually the goat, during the moulting in order to keep the animal warm during the cold season.
