The precious CASHMERE yarn comes from the Cashmere goat.
These goats live among the heights of the Asian mountains, where they are very frequent thermal changes, to which the goats have adapted by developing this hair with unequaled thermoregulatory qualities.
The withdrawal of cashmere is not cruel in relation to animals: the fiber is collected combing the goat during the period of the molt in spring.
It seems that only 200 grams are collected per animal, which is why this yarn is particularly expensive.
The cashmere yarn has the same prerogatives as a common wool, but the garment has a lower specific weight and is much softer.
