History of Cashmere
Cashmere has been a desirable fabric starting in Victorian England, where it was in demand by people by high society, and it is still an expensive purchase quite often. Sweaters, socks, suits, dresses, scarves and shawls are just some of the products produced by Cashmere.
Initially cashmere producing areas were in the Himalayas, then extending to China. China is still the largest producer of raw cashmere, estimated to 10,000 metric tons per year.
As Australia and the American Southwest was being settled by immigrants from Europe, they brought everything they could from their origin, which quite often included goats. They wanted to match the goats with goats already in American. They found the Spanish goat had similar fiber. They paired these goats, which often escaped and ran wild, particularly in rural Texas, however, the Spanish goats were capable of surviving the harsh climate. The initial product was called cashgora, which was a similar product but not quite as fine a quality cashmere. Ultimately, research used genetics, environment and better nutrition to produce a better quality cashmere. Commercial cashmere is now produced by goats located in Colorado, New Hampshire and Washington state. Research continues to improve the quality of cashmere in America. Spring moulting season is when the goats naturally shed their winter coat.
