Organic and sustainable
Hircus Cashmere, established in 1948, is one of the world’s original cashmere producers. Each cashmere poncho is made from the finest yarn from the Ladakh Himalaya region (recognised as the world’s highest quality). Their cashmere comes from a special bread of goat known as Capra Hircus which lives at an altitude of 12000 to 14000 ft.
Cashmere is the goat’s soft, downy undercoat, grown to its maximum length by mid-winter and shed in early Spring. Any goat can grow cashmere, but those we call “cashmere goats” have been selectively bred to produce it in significant amounts. In the spring the goat no longer needs its fine fleecy undercoat to protect it’s self from the harsh winter conditions. At that time the cashmere is harvested by combing the fibre away from the goat, combing doesn’t harm the animal in any way.
