Cashmere and care for cashmere goods
Interesting facts about cashmere
Cashmere is made from the gentlest down of mountain goats that inhabit the highlands of Asia. In Mongolia, India and China (the regions of grazing animals) the temperature drops to -45 degrees and the stronger the frost is results in the warmest fluff.
Each full goat gives you only 150 grams of fluff which is enough to produce one sweater. This fact determines the high cost of cashmere products, which have always been considered a luxury item.
Cashmere fluff is three times thinner than a human hair. Therefore, cashmere products are famous for their softness and lightness. The most delicate goat fluff guarantees hypo-allergenic quality of the material produced, so it will not cause irritation to your baby.
For the manufacture of our products we choose only those suppliers who value the ethical treatment of the animals. These standards are adhered to through all stages of the yarn production including the manual combing of the goats undercoat during shedding.
Even though it is obviously a light fabric, cashmere clothes are incredibly warm and are eight times warmer than regular wool. If your baby was born in warm seasons you should look at our cashmere clothes which are blended with a mixture of silk as this fabric cools well in the summer.
Pure cashmere items which have a matte shade are mostly of natural colours. Sometimes light cashmere seems to be softer and better and this is due to the fact that the processing processes enable clarification and does not indicate a higher level of fibre.
