Cashmere (o Kashmir, Cachemire in french, more rarely Casimiro in italian) is a rare and precious yarn of animal origin.
Its name comes from Kashmir, the eastern region where the first herds of Hircus goats originated, from which Cashmere wool is obtained. These goats, used to living in extreme territories and temperatures, have developed a particular underfleece called Duvet, characterized by particular properties.
Duvet, that is Cashmere, has a very high thermal insulation capacity, as well as a soft and velvety appearance. Thanks to its properties, Cashmere is particularly suitable for the production of warm and soft winter socks.
