This cashmere scarf is a blend of 80% cashmere pashmina wool and 20% silk for a luxurious feel, ultra lightweight and subtle sheen that doesn’t pill. Plus, it is 100% handmade in Nepal, meaning the wool is hand spun, hand woven, and hand dyed and the fabric is screen printed by hand.
Pashmina refers to a type of fine cashmere wool that comes from a special breed of goat, indigenous to the high altitudes of the Himalayan Mountains. Cashmere from Nepalese pashmina wool is the highest quality that exists due to the conditions that mountain goats have adapted to over centuries. In order to survive the harsh, cold climate, the mountain goats have developed exceptionally warm and light fiber that is six times finer than a human hair, and creates the most luxurious fabric in the world.
