What are you wrapped into?
The word Pashmina is derived from the Persian word Pashm which literally means wool; a special type of wool derived from a breed of goat (capra hircus) indigenous to the Himalayan mountains. Pashm is the animal-hair fiber forming the downy undercoat of the Kashmiri goat and is referred to as the King of fibers. Although the word cashmere is sometimes incorrectly applied to extremely soft wools, only the product of the Kashmir goat is true cashmere. Known for its fineness and warmth, it is the most luxurious fiber commanding a high price and yes, in terms of fashion, it is – timeless! Never out of style. So take a little pride, the king of fibers is embracing the Queen in you.
