Fine Quality 100% Pashmina Shawl from Nepal

Nepal is very well known for its finely woven pashmina shawls. Pashmina shawl is an indigenous and unique product of Nepal. Pashmina is hand-made from the wool sheared off from mountain goat called “Chyangra” that are found in the mountainous of the high Himalayan regions of Nepal. Most of the skins come from high altitudes of 9000 to 11000 feet above sea level. The wool next to the skin is cut out. This wool is carded to separate the rough outer part. The soft wool is then hand spun into thin and even pashmina yarn. This yarn is then hand woven into the loom, which has cotton, silk and pashmina warp. While making these pashmina products the use of hand spun pashmina wool yarn has presently been replaced by imported fine machine spun yarn. pashmina shawls are mainly a ladies' souvenir item. Scarves and mufflers of the same material are also available. Due the softness and best quality of pashmina, the travelers are very much willing to take these pashmina products to their home. pashmina is also one of the most exportable products of Nepal.
