The Pashmina story:
Pashmina: the Persian word for wool, is popularly known in the West as cashmere wool, from the old spelling for Kashmir. The fine wool comes from the undercoat of Himalayan mountain goats, raised by semi nomadic herders who yield 38 ounces of fiber per year. The Tibetan Plateau provides the ideal environment for pashmina growth, the fibre is exceptionally absorbent and dyes very well producing deep rich colours, incomparable softness, warmth and durability. Care for your Pashmina and it gets softer with frequent use. Although dry cleaning Pashmina is possible, the chemicals used during this process can harm the fibres so we recommend washing in cold or warm water using mild, natural soap or shampoo. Rinse until water runs clear and then drip dry only, away from direct sunlight, do not wring-or twist, if lt needs pressing, iron over a damp cloth.
