Manufacturing Process Of Cashmere Poncho
According to the Labelling Act for Wool products in USA and UK, the Cashmere ponchos in UK are thoroughly evaluated before they are sold as cashmere products. At Karianne’s, the ponchos meet the criteria of –
- The undercoat fur is trimmed and fibres are de-haired 100% from the Cashmere goat with scientist name of Capra hircus laniger.
- The fibre diameter of the poncho for women is 19 microns and below. For example, check out the Khaki Brown Poncho
- The garment has less than 30% Cashmere fibres with 30 microns diameter as average.
The Cashmere Goats develop double fleece coat in their neck region –the coarse and straight outer “guard hair” on the soft fine underdown hair. After trimming, the soft underdown hair is separated by de-hairing and Cashmere fibre is obtained for dyeing.
During moulting season in Spring i.e. in March-May, the whole process is done by hand in the Nepal Himalayan region. By raking a coarse comb through fleece, the coarse hair and soft underdown hair is separated and greater amount of Cashmere is obtained.
