Cashmere wool comes from cashmere goats (chyangra) living in an extremely cold climate on the high Himalayas. The goats have an incredibly warm and delicate undercoat that secures them throughout the winter. In the spring, when the goats begin to shed their winter coat, they are brushed or cut by hand to extricate the wool undercoat. The undercoat is washed and afterward sent to factories  to be spun into yarn. It takes around two to four years for a goat to create enough wool to weave a cashmere sweater. 

The goats are being brushed or cut once per year, during spring, when the climate is getting warmer. The cashmere fiber is collected from the mountain goat when it naturally shed its winter coat. Hence it doesn’t the harm the animal in any way.

Weaving is a method of fabric production in which two distinct sets of yarn or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric cloth. The longitudinal thread are called the warp and the lateral threads are called the weft.  Weaving can be summarized as a repetition of these three actions. Shedding: where the ends are separated by raising or lowering heddles to form a clear space where the weft can pass. Passing: where the weft is propelled across the loom by hand, an air-jet, a rapier or shuttle. Beating-up: where the weft is pushed up against the fell of the cloth by the reed.

At Sherpa Pashmina all our weaving is done on handlooms. Most of the weavers working in our factory are experienced ones who have been working here for ages and hence understand the art of weaving.

Although great care is taken at all stages of cashmere production some faults do occur. In this process the weaved clothes are examined for any faults and places where threads are missing.

 

Washing is a crucial stage and is performed with great care in formulated soap in soft water at temperatures that are carefully controlled. The cleaning process removes grease and dirt from the fiber before being rinsed in clear water, passed through squeeze rolls and dried in a hot air chamber.

At Sherpa Pashmina each shawl is dyed individually by hand. Dyers with immense patience and generations of experience are the ones  who dyes the cashmere products as even the smallest negligence reflects on the quality of the product. This process dyes the cashmere in your desired color.

Before ironing the cloth, ample  time is spent on checking for the last time to make sure  that the mending, washing , and dying has been done properly. Each garment is individually inspected and every imperfection is rejected. Only the best garments make it to our shelves.

Ironing enhances the quality and makes the clothes look more attractive. The garment is being steamed with a steam iron to get the final correct measurements in place.
