History and origin of cashmere

In the XIII century Marco Polo, traveling a long time in Asia and along the "silk road", inside some caves located in Mongolia, discovered some representations of wild goats that were subsequently tamed by man. All this made him believe that, already a long time ago, some shepherds raised these goats able to provide a particularly valuable and warm wool, not just for a region with very harsh winters; in Europe it came only in the XIX century and with the name of kasmir.
