ALL ABOUT – MYSTIC MASALA’s CASHMERE PASHMINA

In the high altitude desert of LADAKH – a region in Kashmir about 15,000 feet above sea level lives a nomadic tribe called the ‘CHANGPA‘. For hundreds of years this tribe has been rearing a highly pedigreed breed of goat called ‘CHANGRA‘ commonly known as the PASHMINA GOAT.

Mother Nature has protected naturally this goat from its harsh and brutal environment by gifting it with a special hair that is one sixth as fine as human hair. The classic Kashmir Pashmina that is woven is called ‘Pashm‘ It is the ultra-fine down of the Changra goat.

It is astoundingly soft .This Pure Cashmere wool is sold by the ounce weight just like Gold. Only 7 tons of PURE PASHMINA fiber is produced each year. The Goat is not killed or sheared for the Pashm ,but rather ,the Pashmina wool artisans have to collect the fine fibers once the animal rubs against a tree.

The shorter and coarser less inferior quality of this Pashm wool is often confused with the word Cashmere and is used normally as European Cashmere.

PURE PASHMINA that we sell is the beautiful Cashmere that has been loomed for generations and is the highest quality you will find to wear. Thus the rarity, beauty and exclusivity.

The beauty of all of MYSTIC MASALA’ s 100% Cashmere Pashmina is found in its sheen and drape. This all season fiber is light and airy but still very warm in colder climates.

Designer Scarf size is 27" x 80" . Limited and Exclusive Designer Shawl Size 40 x 80 is available only in Hand loomed Cashmere.

We also offer a limited quantity of Designer Hand Loomed and Hand Blocked Pashmina that comes in a blend of 50% Silk and 50% Cashmere.

NOTE : Color variations in the photographs may occur due to the nature of the "sheen" in Pashmina.

All of Mystic Masala’s pure KASHMIR PASHMINA comes with a certificate of Authenticity.

ALL PASHMINA IS CASHMERE
NOT ALL CASHMERE is pure Pashmina
