 About Pashmina
Pashmina is the Cashmere wool of the highest grade. Pashmina is the name given to the wool shorn from the underbelly of goats indigenous to remote and frigid Himalayan regions of Tibet and Central Asia at a height of 12,000 to 14,000 feet or more, a desolate place with little vegetation and extremely cold conditions. Hence, Nature blessed these animals with a very short inner coat of hair, which has been found tos be the best natural insulation in the world. The inner coat of hair is called pashmina. In fact, the "Pashm", which is Persian word, means "wool", refers to the underfur of certain Tibetan animals, particularly goats. A human hair is about 75 microns thick. Pashmina fibers imported from Mongolia and Tibet are 12 - 14 microns thick.

A pashmina is worn close to the face and the color must suit each persons skin tone". The colors of pashmina that are particularly fashionable this season are shades of purple; from pale lilac to a deep violet shade of prune. Pashmina trends this year are slightly ethnic embrodiery and pleats. Due to the timeless and seasonless versatility of the pashmina, many women opt for a classic color that can be worn season after season, perennial favorites include pink-pale shades through to bright fuchsia-butter yellow, white and, of course, jet black. It takes the wool from four and over 200 man-hours (spinning, weaving, dying and decorating,) to make just one pashmina shawl.
