The word cashmere is an old spelling of Kashmir, the disputed region on the borders of India and Pakistan. The ‘wool’ is shorn from mountain goats, living in mountainous environments in Mongolia and the Himalayan and Tibetan regions.
Although it is referred to as wool, their hair is much finer, lighter, stronger and softer than sheep’s wool and three times as insulating. A much-abused term, by US law cashmere must contain only hair from the cashmere goat, the average diameter of which should not exceed 19 microns. We obtain certificated cashmere that meets not only the expectations on origin, but also on comfort.
Cashmere is luxuriously soft and light to wear and we know that our customers love the warmth and comfort. We have many variations of fabric in this wonderful fibre, but here we have chosen a range of doeskins in a spectrum of hues and colours. The rich pile of doeskin makes a glorious blazer, sports coat or lightweight topcoat. These exciting patterns and colourations make for perfect cashmere sports coats, a permanent customer favourite. Made in different weights they are ideal for all climates.
