How 100% pashmina products are made?
Nepali 100% pashmina is extracted from the fine undercoat fiber of the Himalayan goats. These goats produce a soft thin inner coat, insulating ultra-fine hairs. It’s this soft undercoat hair that’s used to make pure 100% pashmina. In average, to make a single pashmina shawl depending on the length and yarn thickness two to three Himalayan goats’ hair is required. The hair is shredded or cut from the goat during the spring season. The goats are not harmed in the process of shredding the hair from their body. Average goat yields 300 to 400 grams of raw pashmina wool every year. After the wool is shredded it is spun into charkha, a traditional way of making fibers into yarns done manually. Drafting is done in the loom also known as a twist; yarns are then fitted into a shuttle for weaving. There are different types of hand loom machine which are used in making pashmina textile. A special and intricate type of Jacquard system is used to create interesting and beautiful patterned pashmina shawls. After the pashmina shawl is made it is cut out of the loom than hand washed with soap and water. After the shawl is dry it goes through brushing to extract extra fuzziness and to make the surface smooth. Then it is sent for dying. Sample dying in a small fabric is done prior to insuring the color shade. After the sample testing, the dye solution is made in a big pot than the scarf is soaked. Dying colors are generally imported from India and Europe. After dying it again goes through inspection for any defect. Minor errors are checked and corrected. Then fringes are made by hands. The scarf is soaked in softener for smoother and soft finish. Then it is ironed properly then finale inspection is done to rectify any defects. Finally, it is labeled and packed. The luxurious pashmina is finally made.
How to recognize 100% pashmina?
It is a difficult task to identify if pashmina is 100% pashmina or not. In present days, there are numerous numbers of Cashmere/Pashmina Company selling synthetic or artificial pashmina product which resembles like a pure pashmina. It is even harder to tell if pashmina is genuine or not if you are buying it online. I have listed few tips below which might be helpful before you blindly invest your hard earn money on some false pashmina product.
- Search for a genuine e-store which has been in business for a long time and does a little background check about the company.
- If the selected company is selling pure pashmina then they should have mentioned product specification details.
- Analyze the specification details like quality, dying, ply, dimension etc.
– Pure pashmina is colored using natural dyes so search for pashmina which has been dyed with natural dyes.
– Generally, for shawls, thirty-six by eighty inches are followed if the dimension is high and the price is low than definitely it is not genuine pashmina.
– Ply is the layer of yarns woven together. Higher the ply thicker will be the fabric. Single ply pashmina shawls are more delicate and light. The number of plies used for pashmina stoles, Shawls or scarves is normally less.
- Check the label. It should mention100% Pashmina or pure pashmina.
- Compare the product quality and price with other e-stores.
- Pashmina is the softest and smoothest wool of all. If it itches in contact with your skin, then undoubtedly it is not pure pashmina.
- A pure pashmina will have very less shine or no shine at all. If it is extremely shiny and silky than it is fake.
- Do a burning test; pull out a thread out of a fringe, burn it. Check the burning smell and ash. It should smell like burning hair and the ash should be in powder form.
- Before you purchase pashmina from any store make sure they have return policies.
