What is Cashmere? The word cashmere wool is rather contradictory and unfortunate in German usage, because the term wool in textile manufacturing is strictly speaking assigned to sheep. A distinction is made between wool (from sheep) and precious hair (from cashmere goat, camel, alpaca, yak). “Kashwool” is the name given to modified fine wools, which may be chlorinated and used in a stretching process to imitate cashmere.
The name is derived from the region of Kashmir. The native species of the lop-eared, horned Kashmir goat occurs in white, gray, brown or black. It belongs to the family of domestic goats, a subspecies of wool goats. In its homeland, cashmere wool has been handcrafted into high-quality textiles since about 1000 BC.
