Pashmina is a term for a type of cashmere fibre. Cashmere is the very softest, most luxurious fibre in the world to wrap yourself - or someone special in. It comes from the coat of the Pashmina goat which is native to the Himalayas where they have been making cashmere shawls for thousands of years.

Pashmina refers to a type of fine cashmere wool and the textiles made from it. The name comes from Pashmina, made from Persian pashm (wool).The wool comes from changthangi or Pashmina goat, which is a special breed of goat indigenous to high altitudes of the Himalayas in Nepal, Pakistan and northern India. Pashmina shawls are hand spun, woven and embroidered in Kashmir, Pakistan and made from fine cashmere fibre.

Cashmere wool, usually simply known as cashmere, is a fiber obtained from Cashmere and other types of goats. The word cashmere derives from an old spelling of Kashmir. Cashmere is fine in texture, and strong, light, and soft. Garments made from it provide excellent insulation.

Cashmere wool fiber for clothing and other textile articles is obtained from the neck region of Cashmere and other goats. Cashmere goats produce a double fleece that consists of a fine, soft undercoat or under down of hair mingled with a straighter and much coarser outer coating of hair called guard hair. After de-hairing, the resulting "cashmere" is ready to be dyed and converted into yarn, fabrics and garments.
