From the website:
"This uniquely soft garment is hand combed each spring from the feathery neck and chest wool of the “Chyangra” (Capra Hircus), the Himalayan mountain goat.
The Chyangra’s coat is one of the animal world’s most ingenious creations: living at altitudes ranging from 12 000 to 14 000 feet – where temperatures can drop as low as 10 degrees F – this mountain goat’s coat is designed to retain heat without weighing it down. The Chyangra’s pelt is the most insulating in the world – it is formed by a unique, short and incredibly thin inner coat of hair. This is known to the world as Pashmina, the most luxurious out of all the 100% cashmere shawls."
