Pashmina is the fine wool made with the hair of a distinctive clan of Himalayan goats. These goats live at an altitude of 14,000 feet. Naturally, the hair is hot and soft. It is also six times thinner than a human hair. The pure pashmina shawls are hand-woven with the artistic excellence of a weaver as they cannot stand machinery pressure.
The name of this shawl is derived from a Persian word “Pashm” which means made of wool. The delicate fabric is also called ‘soft gold’ for its light golden glow.
However, with growing popularity and demand, these pashminas are now woven to with different fabric blends.
A hot favorite among royalties for ages, the fabric finds a special place in women’s closets. A black pashmina differs from other shawls as it rides high on class and appeal. A black shade mixes and complements many different colors. It is very versatile and suits all age groups.
