The animal, which this wonderful wool is obtained from, is a hircus goat, which is originally from an Asian region, called precisely Kashmir. It’s located in the mountainous area of Asia, on the border between India and Pakistan. Due to the low temperatures, that on those mountains may fall below -30 C°, these Hircus goats develop a fleece with two layers, the top part is called Giarre, that’s rough and thick, while the lower layer, called Duvet, is very soft and downy. Only this fine and precious part is used to realize the famous cashmere knitwear.
