Cashmere since 1767
Found in the harsh environmental conditions of the Mongolian mountains and plains, long haired Cashmere goats live amongst the nomadic people.
The goats withstand these conditions with their double fleece, one layer consisting of a soft and fine undercoat and another which is coarser and straighter. In the spring the soft undercoat begins to shed and is then combed off the goat and this is the fibre we use in all Joshua Ellis fabrics and accessories.
Cashmere goats are combed in the late spring to ensure that the animals are kept as warm as possible during the winter months, and new hair re-growth is encouraged by new grazing.
