Cashmere is a selected fiber from small goats raised in Asia; the best fibers come from Iran, Mongolia, Tibet and Afghanistan. Its name derives from the historical region of Kasmir, situated between India, Pakistan and China. Cashmere is smooth, silky and velvety, giving a warm and fluffy feeling on the skin. This esteemed fiber is obtained by combing the soft undercoat of the goats by hand during the moulting season in the spring time; the estimated production per animal per year is only about 150 gram. Silk is a protein fiber produced by silkworms, the most shimmering and bright among animal fibers. Silk filament is obtained by unwinding the cocoons of the worms Bombyx mori in hot water and then spinning 4 to 8 filaments (long up to 1 km) together into a single thread. The silk yarn, produced from continuous filaments, has a great tensile strenght and a natural shimmer because of its triangular molecular structure that act like a prism and refracts light.
