REGION: Srinagar, Kashmir
YARN: Pashmina, Merino
WHAT WE LIKE: : Versatility! This fine weave can withstand the coldest of outdoor winds, but because it breathes so well, it is also perfect for the cold indoors on a summer day, or on a plane ride. The looms here have also perfected the art of blending wool with a touch of silk. This gives the textile more body and the tighter weave resists pilling. Many of our customers have told us this has become their go-to travel scarf.
150 HOURS: That is how long it takes to make a pashmina scarf. Because its so fine, the fiber cannot withstand the force of a spinning machine or a power loom - so the entire process is done by hand.
