#Cashmere

Why is cashmere so special? What makes it so much more luxurious to layer on a cold winter day? Let's talk about it!

Cashmere comes from the fine, soft undercoat or under layer of the Kashmir goat's hair. Though lightweight and luxuriously soft, this material is extremely warm with the purpose of protecting the goats from the cold mountain temperatures. Kashmir goats are only sheered during their molting season which is the Spring. The process is also quite labor intensive.  After sheering, each strand of the undercoat must be separated and sorted by hand.

Baby CZ by Carolina Zapf cashmere originates in the high plateaus of Mongolia. The delicate material is removed from the goat by hand with a coarse comb, and up to one pound of material is yielded per goat. Then the strands must be dyed, spun into yarns, and finally knitted into hats, scarves, sweaters, and blankets to keep you are yours warm and toasty all winter!
