Our ultra-fine cashmere is taken from the underbelly and under the chin of the Himalayan Mountain Goat, locally called “Chyangra”, this beautiful goat lives at an altitude of over 3000 meters in the most remote regions of Nepal. Inhabiting this freezing cold climate these hardy goats, produce the warmest cashmere. The fibres are gathered by combing and collecting naturally shed wool. The delicate fur combing process is performed every spring on the same goats for many years without harm or distress to the animal. Each goat produces only 100 grams or less of wool and only the inner layer fibres measuring fewer than 16.5 microns qualify for use as “cashmere”.
The collected fur is then spun into extraordinarily soft and warm fine yarn. The art of spinning and weaving in Nepal has been passed on from one generation to another and we work hard with local artisans to preserve these traditions. Cashmere is the softest, most delicate and finest naturally insulating fibre in the world – treat your La Sororité purchase with love and care and it will get even softer with age.
Your beautiful Cashmere item is delicate but very durable and with your loving care will last for years.
Wash by hand in cold water. We recommend using a small amount of baby shampoo. After soaking and rinsing thoroughly, squeeze out excess water gently, but never wring. Lay the sweater out flat between two towels and press gently to soak up excess water.
Lay to dry on a flat towel or a drying rack, but make sure it’s evenly spread across the rack rather than simply hung as hanging whilst wet can stretch the fabric.
When completely dry fold the garment neatly and store out of direct sunlight. Protect from moths, they love Cashmere especially if there is moisture in the fibres.
