About the sustainability of the cashmere-
The raw cashmere is sourced from inner Mongolia and the yarns come from Chyangra goats (Cashmere goats). While harvesting the cashmere, they are not harmed in any way- in fact it is necessary to shear the goats to protect their health. Every year, there is a season when the cashmere is harvested. One goat can give cashmere up to seven years, which is also their life span. Since, they are animals of cold regions, every summer they are sheared because it is also good for them to adapt with the climate.
These cashmere goats are raised in inner Mongolia where there are abundant grazing lands and a system of shifting the grazing land each season so that they can maintain the growth of grass in the place where they graze their animals.
