Origin and history of cashmere

Cashmere or Cashmere wool is an animal fibre obtained from the long, silky wool of the Cashmere goat - found in India, Pakistan and China.

This fine and precious wool is used to make clothes and other articles such as covers, hats, gloves, shawls and scarves.

Originally, Cashmere was only ever worn by men. But towards the end of the 18th century, the Cashmere shawl became the must-have accessory for all high-society French women. And this accessory reigned throughout European fashion circles in the 19th century with the fabric making an appearance in shawl manufacturers across England, Austria and Russia. Today, China continues to remain one of the largest producers of Cashmere in the world.

How is cashmere made?

In winter, the Cashmere goat grows a layer of fine, but tightly packed together hair. Its coat doubles in size, protecting it against below freezing temperatures of -30°C to -40°C. This dark grey duvet of hair is the raw material from which cashmere wool is made.

The first stage of fabrication consists of shearing the goats’ coats or removing the hair in Spring using a brush as soon as they are ready to moult. The wool is then washed in order to remove any impurities. After this, an operation called 'dehairing' is performed where the fibres are separated to make the raw material as fine as possible. The fibres are then ready for threading, weaving and dying.

Advice and care

Hand washing (recommended)
At 30°C with a special wool product (no softener) :
• Quickly dip the item in the water (do not leave to soak), pat and rinse in clear water,
• Gently squeeze the water out of the fabric by rolling in a towel,
• Dry on a towel over a flat surface away from sources of light or heat.

When washing, do not add any form of fabric softener.
Ironing Iron inside out. Stream iron very lightly on a low temperature.

Machine washing
Use the cool woollen programme with a special wool product (no softener).
• Slip the item into a cover (a pillow case with no buttons or zips for example - close with an elastic band) to avoid it getting damaged or losing its shape in the wash,
