Pashmina Shawls

Pashmina from the Persian word for "wool", refers to the underfur of certain Tibetan animals, particularly goats, commonly used for the making of shawls. Pashmina is simply "cashmere." The name is more appropriate, corresponding to a local term for wool, while cashmere reflects the colonialist perspective.

Pashmina shawls are a relatively recent cottage industry in Nepal, and all of the wool is imported from China. As the demand has fallen off, prices have dropped, and adulterated fiber is quite common. The Chinese suppliers are adept at processing sheep wool (often merino) to remove the tell-tale scales. There are very few labs capable of identifying competent adulteration.

Pashmina wraps are available in a range of sizes, from "muffler" (12"x60") to "scarf" (24"x 80") to fullsize shawl (36"x80"). Pure pashmina is a rather gauzy, open weave, as the wool cannot tolerate high tension. The most popular pashmina fabric is a 70% pashmina 30% silk blend, but 50/50 is also common. The 70/30 is tightly woven, has an elegant sheen and drapes nicely, but is still quite soft and light-weight.
