origin of cashmere.
Cashmere is an animal fiber from the long, silky wool of the Capra Hircus goat.
The fleece of the cashmere goat is enriched with a soft down to protect it from the extreme cold which can reach -40 ° C on the high plateaus of Mongolia.
Cashmere wool is made from down.
At absolut, quality is a priority. So we went to select the most beautiful goats in the icy and fragile meadows of Inner Mongolia.
Cashmere is a natural material with thermoregulatory and anti-odour functions , it has the property to be at the body temperature in summer and winter.
These natural qualities cannot be matched by any synthetic material. In addition, absolut cashmere clothes have a long life, due to the special care taken in their manufacture. Our cashmere has been thought to act as a second skin, wrapped in its natural fibers we can only be grateful to nature for offering us this gift.
We chose to dye the fiber to get the best quality.
There are several methods to dye cashmere :
- By dyeing the fiber collected from the goat
- By tinting the thread
- By dyeing the crafted sweater
we chose to dye the fiber because this process produces garments of the highest quality (grade A).
the cashmere fiber is obtained by delicately brushing the goats with a comb for their useless hair. We help them get rid of this excess of hair that would otherwise have been naturally lost in spring. Then, our shepherds ensures the cleaning of impurities trapped in the fibers.
