How is pashmina made?
Nepal pashmina scarf 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 pashmina scarf. In average, to make a single pashmina scarf 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 spring. The goats are not harmed in the process of shredding the hair from their body. Average goat yields 300 to 400 grams of raw cashmere 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. A special and intricate type of Jacquard system is used to create interesting and beautiful patterns. After the pashmina scarf 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 scarf is finally made.
