Unraveling Cashmere Mysteries: Your Ultimate Cashmere FAQs Guide
Cashmere comes from the soft underbelly of a goat called Capra Hircus. These goats live in high places,
above 14,000 feet, where it is super cold, sometimes going below minus 30 degrees Celsius in winter.
The soft cashmere is under their rough outer hair. Each goat only makes around 3 ounces, or 90 grams,
of cashmere per year. You can find these goats in the high plateau areas of Kashmir, Nepal, and the
central plains of Inner Mongolia.

Cashmere comes in different grades, like “Grade A” and “Grade B”. We provide only the best quality
cashmere products, using “Grade-A” cashmere. The top-notch cashmere is around 14–15.5 microns
thick, and all our pashmina and cashmere items are made with this very fine quality of cashmere.
Ply’s are strands of yarn twisted together to make one piece of yarn. Two-ply is thicker than one-ply, and
so on. Our products are offered in the following ply’s:
2 ply: Sweaters, Cardigan, Scarves, Wrap, Hats, Gloves & Socks
3 ply: Sweaters, Cardigan, Shawls Wrap, Ponchos, Hats and Socks
4 ply: Knitwear Scarves, Robes, and Throws, Sweaters & Cardigans

Pashmina items, cashmere sweaters, shawls, robes, and blankets are crafted in Nepal. Meanwhile,
cashmere hats, gloves, socks, slippers, coats, jackets, and travel sets are manufactured in China.
Cashmere throws and scarves are produced in both Nepal and China.

We recommend dry cleaning for all cashmere and pashmina items. So, if you want to clean your
cashmere products, we can teach you how to wash your cashmere garments easily at home Follow
these instructions (cashmere coats, jackets, and pants should never be washed at home)

Gently hand wash your cashmere sweater in lukewarm water using hair shampoo, ensuring thorough
shampoo dissolution before immersing the sweater. Rinse with a hair conditioner for added softness,
and wash colored garments separately. Avoid using bleach. After washing, squeeze gently without
twisting or wringing to maintain the sweater’s shape. Dry the sweater flat, away from direct heat and
sunlight, after removing excess water. When pressing, use a damp cloth and a cool iron, ironing from the
garment’s inside. As for storing your cashmere, ensure it is kept in a cool, dry place.

Before storing your valuable cashmere garments in basements or attics, carefully inspect for leaks,
dampness, and sunlight exposure. Fold the clothes neatly or pack them in tissue paper or plastic bags,
then store them in a closet away from light, dust, and dampness. It is recommended to clean garments
before storage, as unseen stains may oxidize and become fixed during storage, providing a potential
food source for moths. Moths prefer natural fabrics, and mothballs (naphthalene) and cedar chips are
commonly used to protect woolens from infestation.

For the summer storage of pure cashmere sweaters, the key is to keep moisture away. Avoid storing
them in damp places. A well-sealed plastic storage box, preferably see-through to monitor moisture, is
suitable. Ensure the box is dry before placing the sweaters inside. To prevent moths, ensure the sweater

is clean before long-term storage. Pay attention to food stains, as moths are attracted to food proteins
and cooking oils. Moth-proofing products or paper sprayed with perfume can be placed inside the box
for additional protection.

To keep your cashmere garments always clean and beautiful, Additional Care Tips for Cashmere
Garments must be followed. Avoid wearing the same garment too frequently; let it rest for two or
three days after a day of use. Enhance cashmere tops and cardigans with a silk or pashmina scarf,
which can also protect against makeup stains when worn between the garment and your neck. When
dressing in cashmere, steer clear of rough clothing, metal accessories, belts, and coarse leather items
like crocodile leather bags. Opt for silk scarves and smooth accessories like pearls to elevate your
cashmere look.

Pilling, the formation of tiny balls on the fabric, results from regular use and abrasion. It commonly
occurs around elbows, skirt seats, and areas rubbed by accessories. Soft, fuzzy surfaces are more
prone to pilling. While some pilling is normal for cashmere products with repeated use, you can
minimize it by avoiding friction with rough clothing, metal accessories, bags, and belts.
