Pashmina wool comes from Changthangi or Pashmina goat, which is a special breed of goat indigenous to high altitudes of the Himalayas . Pashmina shawls are hand spun , woven and embroidered in Kashmir, and made from fine cashmere fiber. The fiber is also known as Pashm or Pashmina for its use in the handmade shawls of Kashmir . The woolen shawls made from wool in Kashmir find written mention between 3rd century BC and the 11th century AD. However, the founder of the cashmere wool industry is traditionally held to be the 15th century ruler of Kashmir, Zayn-ul-Abidin, who introduced weavers from Central Asia . Cashmere shawls have been manufactured in Nepal and Kashmir for thousands of years. The test for a quality Pashmina is warmth and feel.
