The Best Cashmere goats are located in Mongolia. Our cashmere is sourced from the Zalaa Jinst white goat, the only entirely white breed of cashmere goat in Mongolia. Cashmere goats live in extremely cold and harsh climates. To survive, they grow long, fine fibers to protect themselves, which our herders hand comb since shearing goats can be "very stressful" (these goats don't need any more stress after the winter they just went through)! Even though it takes more time & effort to hand comb, our herders have over 2,000 years of nomadic herding tradition to uphold, and this old-school approach is still the best thing for their goats and for the fibers for our sweaters.
