Its origin lies in the lonely and isolated local populations in the mountains of Tibet, on the southern slopes of the Himalayas and in the Xinjiang region of China, mountain areas with below-zero temperatures where the Cashmere goat has its origins. The fibre is obtained from the deepest, finest and most delicate part of the goat's wool. Because of its characteristics and scarcity, its price is relatively high compared to some other fibers. It is soft to the touch, silky, light and good thermal isolator.
