Cashmere wool originated from goats

Cashmere sweaters are regarded as the finest of all. Not to mention scarves, socks, hats and anything else you can make out of cashmere. But did you know that cashmere is not wool at all? Rather, it’s the hair of goats! Cashmere started in the Kashmir region of Afghanistan, known for the finest goats in the world. In fact, the word pashmina refers to a specific kind of goat. So, the next time you think about warmth, remember who has the highest standards for it in the world. Goats. Chew on that!
