The production of cashmere in the world.

The world production of cashmere accounts for 0.5% of the total production of wool: this is because the production of the Himalayas has been reduced considerably while that of Mongolia (Chinese province) remains stable, supplying three quarters of the wool distributed in the world.
The remaining production comes from Iran and Afghanistan but is much less appreciated than the Chinese because there are few regions in the world able to offer a habitat suitable for the production of this precious wool, and in fact Mongolia continues to maintain its exclusivity almost total.
