The cashmere produced by Sustainable Cashmere Union comes from the fluffy undercoat that domestic goats of the Capra Hircus species develop to compensate for the rigors of the climate – temperatures reaching -40°C – by way of protection. The top layer, the long hair called the “jar”, protects the cashmere from the external elements.
The quality of the luxurious fibers is characterized by its fineness and length, not to mention its extreme softness. The natural color range of Sustainable Cashmere Union extends from white to brown to beige.
This golden fleece, particularly warm, is recovered each spring through a combing process in accordance with the cooperatives’ charter. Depending on the sex and age of the combed goat, the harvest per animal generally varies between 150 and 300 grams.
White remains the preferred natural color at the international level.
Because of its purity, its brightness, its excellence. The elegance in the heart of sobriety.
Its color allows many variations since we can dye directly the natural fibers while maintaining an extreme quality.
The Bayankhongor region is known and reputed to be home to the zalaa jinst breed of goats with these prestigious white fibers.
