How cashmere is harvested

The precious wool is harvested in spring when the goat starts to lose its hair, in two different ways, depending on whether it is the wild goat, which lives in the Himalayas, or the domesticated goat, living in Mongolia. In the Himalayas, when the goat is hot, it tends to rub against rocks and shrubs to accelerate the "changeable" process, leaving many tufts entangled so that the mountain dwellers can collect their wool as they travel the mountain. Given that a goat produces approximately 100 grams of usable cashmere, to create a pull it takes from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 goats. In Mongolia, although this region is very large but also very arid, desert and less densely populated on the planet, there is however between 70% and 80% of goat breeding Hircus, which contributes mainly to the livelihood of its population which is purely rural.
