Pashmina is the finest type of cashmere wool. The name comes from the Persian and means "soft gold" in Kashmiri. The wool comes from the soft downy undercoat of the Changthangi goats, which protects the goats and keeps them warm during the harsh cold winters of the Himalayan mountains, often -40 C. The best wool comes from goats wintering above 14,000 ft. In the spring the goats naturally shed their undercoat. The Changpa people of the Himalayas collect the undercoat by combing the goat.
Pashminas are known for their softness and warmth. Pure pashmina is a rather gauzy open weave as the fiber does not tolerate high tension.
The price of pashmina is due to the rarity of the pashmina wool, as the goat is very rare, and the expert craftsmanship that goes into each shawl. All steps, from combing the goat, spinning the wool, to weaving and finishing, must be done by hand, due to the fineness of the pashmina fiber. It takes approximately 180 hours to produce a single shawl.
