Cashmere Cardigan

A Cashmere cardigan makes a fashion statement for its wearer besides providing the luxury of softness and warmth. Cashmere wool is considered the softest, warmest and the most expensive variety in the world. The name Cashmere is associated with the Indian state of Kashmir where this ultra soft wool is obtained by combing the bellies of the high mountain goats. Besides Kashmir region, Cashmere wool is also produced in Mongolia, Iran, Tibet and China. In the recent years Cashmere wool is also being produced by the American herders.

Since the Cashmere wool is now no more the exclusive produce of Kashmir and numerous other counties have started producing it, there is now a lot of competition among the suppliers and Cashmere cardigans are no more the exclusive preserve of the rich.
