This soft wool is sourced from Cashmere Goats, and its name comes from Kashmir state in South Asia. Unlike other kinds of yarn, the process of collecting wool from these animals is much more time and labor-consuming. Instead of shearing, cashmere wool is collected by combing only once a year, so that one goat produces much less wool than a regular sheep. All this makes the wool highly valued and expensive. #crochet #howtocrochet #yarntypes #cashmere
