Cashmere Pashmina Ladies Shawls UK
The term Cashmere sounds much like Kashmir, the place where the wools have originated from. Kashmir was called Cashmere in earlier days and the derivation of the soft fine fibre too dates back to fifteenth century. The weaving process has changed over the years but the traditional method of weaving Cashmere shawls have been gaining popularity day by day. Although much similar to other fibres derived from animal fur, Cashmere is unique for being the finest and softest of all. At Karianne’s Secret, the large collection of premium Cashmere shawls made 100% from the underdown hair of Changthangi or Cashmere Goat, locally called Changra.

The Pashmina Cashmere Shawls are also called Pashmina Shawls once the Cashmere fibres are woven. The nomads in the Nepal Himalayan regions rear the Capra hircus goats which develop the warm and thick undercoat of soft hair on their necks during the moulting season. After trimming the hair and de-hairing to remove the coarser guard hair from the fleece, the derived Cashmere is dyed and textile yarns are made for weaving the shawls.
