Pashmina is a fine type of Kashmir wool. The name comes from Persian: pašmina, meaning “made from wool” and literally translates to “Soft Gold” in Kashmiri. Basic need of Pashmina is to drive away cold. Our pashminas are closely woven and thick and comfortable to wrap you. The Kashmir shawl is characterized by the elaboration of its design, in which the “cone” pattern is a prominent feature, and by the glowing harmony, brilliance, depth, and enduring qualities of its colors. The basis of these excellences is found in the very fine, soft, short, flossy under-wool, called Pashm or pashmina, found on the shawl-goat. When Pashmina wool is used for the embroidery work, it is made to blend so intimately with the texture of the basic shawl material that it would be difficult to insert even a fine needle between the embroidery stitches and the basic fabric.
