Frequently asked Questions
Where exactly does cashmere come from?
The cashmere is the soft undercoat of the cashmere goat. This originally comes from Central Asia and owes its name to the region of Kashmir, which is found in the Himalayas. Nowadays, however, the cashmere goat is also kept in many other parts of the world, so that the valuable natural fiber is now also produced in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Scotland, for example.
What is the difference between pashmina and cashmere?
Cashmere scarves are also often referred to as pashmina. In fact, the pashmina is a thin cloth, which is usually made from 100% cashmere. The wool used here is generally a touch thinner, but since the difference is often very small, the terms are now often used interchangeably.
How to wash a cashmere scarf?
In order to get the most out of your cashmere scarf, you should treat it with care. Therefore, we recommend that you wash the scarves and shawls only by hand. Also, you should not dry them in the dryer, but preferably only in the air. If small knots form on the scarf, you can carefully remove them with a special lint shaver. More detailed information and instructions for the care of our scarves and shawls can also be found on the respective product pages.
