パシュミナ

Pashmina is the lightest and warmest of the commercial natural fibers. No other textile provides the softness, comfort and elegance of Pashmina. It comes from "CHYANGRA" Himalayan goat, which lives in the most remote regions of Himalayas. The Pashmina fiber comes from under coat of the Himalayan mountain goat. The Pashmina yarn is only 10-12 microns thick whereas human hair has 45 to 50 microns.
Pashmina Shawls are practices to wear and it represents the very height of comfort and opulence. We weave all our shawls in KTM, Nepal with great care, in traditional handloom and dyeing with our own experienced dyeing master.
To retain this after washing the Pashmina Shawl should be squeezed gently into cold water with mild soap. After washing the shawl should be dried flat and back.

Here we would like to show you the handworks and perfection that needs to make a simple Pashmina Shawl.
May we remind that among the many workers , even if any one worker makes a slight mistake, the whole shawl would be damaged. So it takes a great deal of concentration and caring to make Pashmina Shawl.

There seems a little confusion between Pashmina and Cashmere. There is a slight deference between Pashmina and Cashmere.
