Cashmere wool or simply cashmere is one of the most luxurious and most expensive natural fabrics. This is one of the most wanted materials, due to its specific and useful properties. One of the first things to notice about these products is their beautiful visual appearance and the price. But, why is cashmere so expensive? The simple answer is – because it is really a special fiber.
The specific process of production – cashmere wool is obtained with combing of the lower hair (the lower layer of hair) from special goats that provide cashmere wool. The Cashmere goat originates from India and the Pakistan region of Cashmere, although in ancient times it could be found in neighboring countries like China and even in Mongolia.
