Cashmere

Cashmere is obtained from the processing of the hairs of the Hircus goat, which lives in Mongolia, in the Himalayan region, on the Tibetan plateaus, where in winter the temperature also reaches -40 ° C. After its shearing, which determines the quality more or less precious of the fabric, its hairs are cleaned and woven in threads, which identify the thickness of the garment: from thin, consisting of 2 threads, to very thick, made with 10 or 12 threads. Unlike wool, cashmere is much softer, warmer and isothermal (constant temperature), moreover it can be worn directly on the skin because it does not produce any itching.
