A little Background of Pashmina!!!

Pashmina, commonly also known as cashmere wool, comes from Pashm, that means under fleece of the Himalayan mountain goat, called Chyangra (Capra Hircus) which lives in the high altitude of 12,000 feet in Himalayan regions of Nepal where the temperature drops below -40 degrees and in some remote regions of Tibetan Plateau. This wool has a thousand years of history of being woven into shawls, and blankets, and praised for its exquisite softness, long life, warmth, and beauty. The thermo conductivity of this wool is very high and proves to be the best insulator. Manufacturers weave Pashmina garments with a blend of silk. The proportion varies from 80:20 percent to 50:50 percent. More the proportion of Pashmina, higher is the price of those clothes. Fibre2fashion.com
