Pashmina: dropped
2004 Copper

Pashmina, from the Persian word for wool, is popularly known in the west as cashmere wool, from the old spelling for Kashmir. The very fine wool comes from the undercoat of the Himalayan Mountain goat, raised by semi-nomadic herders. The fibre is exceptionally absorbent and dyes very easily and deeply.

The Pashmina Shawl has become in recent years, a fashion accessory known for its luxurious rarity, its incomparable softness, warmth and durability.
