|The name comes from Pashmineh, made from sajan Persian pashm (“wool”). The wool comes from changthangi or pashmina goat, which is a special breed of goat indigenous to high altitudes of the Himalayas. Pashmina shawls are hand spun, woven and embroidered in Kashmir, and made from fine cashmere fibre.
People who have less knowledge about this wool can easily be cheated and can end up paying high amount for the stole/ Shawl.Please be careful while dealing as its very tough to recognize the right product. an 80-20 mix can look as authentic as an 100% pure Pashmina.
