The ultimate in luxury! It’s hard to put into words how incredible it is to get bundled up in pure cashmere! Mongolian cashmere is uniquely known for its softness and durability in international markets. With our sourcing partners in the SCU (Sustainable Cashmere Union), we work with sustainability-focused herder cooperatives to procure fiber that is traceable all the way back to the communities it comes from, which are marked as such on their labels.

By working with herder cooperatives that are focused on development and traceability, they are able to implement breeding programs to increase fiber quality and income for the families as opposed to having their premium fiber mixed with other batches from surrounding areas. From increasing health care to business projects aimed at increasing and diversifying income sources, our partner cooperatives work with the SCU to invest the added income to fit their needs best.

Our cashmere comes only from the finest wool from the underside of the goat’s belly and chin. Due to the small amount of cashmere that can be brushed from each goat in the spring, cashmere is a rare and highly sought fiber!
