Cashmere goats live in extremely cold and harsh climates. To survive, they grow long, fine fibers to protect themselves, which our herders hand comb since shearing goats can be "very stressful" (these goats don't need any more stress after the winter they just went through!) Even though it takes more time & effort to hand comb, our herders have over 2,000 years of nomadic herding tradition to uphold, and this old-school approach is still the best thing for their goats and for the fibers for our scarfts.

THE BEST CASHMERE GOATS COME FROM MONGOLIA
If you want the best cashmere in the world, you need to go to Mongolia. Sahrasshop sources its cashmere from the Zalaa Jinst white goat, the only entirely white breed of cashmere goat in Mongolia.
LONG FIBERS = MAXIMUM SOFTNESS
Did we mention how friggin' cold the temperatures can get where our cashmere comes from? (Think -40 degrees in the winter.) This relentless cold can last longer than most places in the world (icy sandstorms are actually a thing there), giving the goats we source from a fiber length about a third longer than others. Score!
