Supersoft Baby Cashmere Made with Care
Each hair collected have an average width of 14.36 microns, and the difference in fiber fineness creates an unparalleled hand feel that can't be replicated with chemical reagents or after-treatment.
At 34-36mm long, they are exquisitely soft and provide superior warmth compared to other types of cashmere.
We only collect fibers from the shoulders and sides of kid goats, ensuring their welfare is our top priority. Our process is carefully designed to avoid harm to the animals, while also protecting the pastoral environment and improving the lives of local herdsmen.EXPERIENCE UNMATCHED SOFTNESS
Why is Baby Cashmere Precious?
Baby Cashmere is an exquisite and exceptionally rare fiber, sourced from the inner fleece of Hircus kid goats. Our baby cashmere comes from kid goats born and raised in Tibet.
The fine hair of baby goat very rare and precious because it could only be collected once in a lifetime for goat kids between three to twelve months old, through a delicate and completely harmless grooming process.
Goats roam freely on vast prairies, grazing and scaling mountains daily. As spring brings warmer weather from March to May, the goats naturally shed their fluffy coats, which the herders collect using iron combs. During the process, the kids remain calm and relaxed, experiencing no discomfort and even enjoying the process.
The Fluff Fiber of 19 Baby Goats = 1 Sweater
Each kid goat yields only 80 grams of inner fluff, in contrast to the 250 grams produced by adult goats. Once the rough outer fibers are removed, only 30 to 40 grams of usable fiber remain per kid. To make a sweater, the fluff from 19 kid goats suffices, while a coat requires 58 kids' worth of fluff.
How To Maintain Baby Cashmere?
- The baby cashmere is breathable and lightweight, so it doesn't need to be washed frequently.
- Be aware of the friction created by fabrics rubbing together to minimize pilling of the sweater.
- Avoid using fabric softener.
