Provenance

The Chang-Ra mountain goat resides in the high altitudes of the Himalayan plateaus at 16,000 feet above sea level, withstanding freezing temperatures and harsh winds that stimulate the growth of the goats' super-soft undercoat. The word "cashmere" was coined centuries ago when a maharaja of Kashmir sent a gift of pashmina made from the fibers of this undercoat to the British governor of India. Today Nepalese artisans still use ancient hand-weaving techniques to spin these fibers into hand-woven cashmere blankets. This throw was handcrafted in Nepal from 100% Nepalese cashmere. The goat is hand-sheared, leaving the animal unharmed and handled ethically.
