CASHMERE – MONGOLIA | A TRULY EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCT

In the heart of Mongolia’s Gobi Desert, rugged nomads produce the very finest cashmere wools. Rare and precious, cashmere wool is incomparably light and soft. The region is one of the birthplaces of goat-rearing where to this day wool goats roam freely moving between their summer and winter pastures.

Seasonal temperatures at an altitude of over 4,000 metres on the Tibetan plateau or in the Gobi Desert can range from -40°C to +40°C! The goat has adapted to these conditions and its long coat helps it to withstand the harsh climate. Today, there are three colours of cashmere goat – black, tan and white – which give dark grey, grey-brown and white wools respectively. Gobi Desert wool is one of the most beautiful and sought-after of the many qualities of cashmere wool.
