Pashmina is the highest quality of Cashmere, which comes from a Goat in Ladakh, Himalayas. WE DO NOT MIX WOOL OR SILK in our pieces.
The cashmere from Ladakh is the original and it still collected by the nomads from free-range goats. The hair length is 3 to 5 times longer than from goats in Mongolia (used for mass cashmere production), and the hair is finer due to lower temperatures in Ladakh versus Mongolia. Today we see cashmere being sold everywhere, almost all of it comes Mongolia, the goats there are shaved every 3 months versus once a year combing (not shaving) in Ladakh.
