Caxemira (cashmere) is a natural fibre obtained from the Cashmere goat. The wool of cashmere has been transformed into textiles for centuries. Nowadays, cashmere is primarily produced in China and other major regions include Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan and Iran.
Due to its extremely fine fibres, cashmere is one of the scarcest and most valued wools in the world. In fact, the annual production of cashmere from each goat is about 150 grams, which is why it is considered to be so rare and therefore so luxurious.
Caxemira’s unique spiral structure provides a comfortable warmth and it helps to achieve thermic balance by regulating body temperature. Indeed, the tightly curled fibres trap a lot of air, creating a natural layer of still air which is the best possible form of natural insulation. Hence, Caxemira is perfect for balancing heat and cold in the transitional seasons.
This wool fibre feels extremely soft and delicate but at the same time it is very resilient and extremely elastic. Cashmere occurs naturally in only three colours: white, grey and brown, but can be dyed in any colour.
