The most luxurious socks in the world - cashmere is softer and approximately three times warmer than sheep's wool. Our Cashmere is processed in Mongolia and then spun into the most luxurious quality yarn by Italian spinners. It takes approximately 6 goats to produce enough fibre to make one dozen pairs of Pantherella short cashmere socks.
Cashmere is one of the finest natural fibres in the world and is obtained from the hair of cashmere goats. Pantherella cashmere comes from Mongolia, where around 40 million goats contend with winter temperatures as low as -30°C. Only the soft, ultrafine undercoat is used to produce cashmere. In spring, as the goats moult for summer, they are combed by hand to remove their ultrafine undercoat, while leaving the guard hair intact. These combings are then washed and sorted to remove any stray guard hairs. What is left is pure cashmere. This laborious process results in a fibre that is exceptionally exquisite and rare. It therefore it commands a higher price than more easily obtained fibres.
