about the cashmere goat
only about 200 grams of wool are obtained from one cashmere goat each year.
as the name suggests, the cashmere goat comes from the kashmir region in south asia and nepal. it refers to a species that belongs to the family of domestic goats and is characterized by its floppy ears and small horns. about 20 different breeds belong to it.
the coat, however, is what breeders particularly appreciate about it: each cashmere goat “produces” only about 200 grams of the valuable wool per year – and only if the weather conditions to which the goat is exposed are right.
uavi republic uses cashmere wool from inner mongolia.
the wool is obtained with animal welfare in mind. only the best quality makes it into the uavi republic collection.
