Storyboard Text

  • Cashmere fibers are collected by either combing or shearing the animal during the molting season. Goats molt during a several week period in the spring.
  • The scoured material is then dehaired. This step removes vegetable matter, dandruff and the coarse outer guard hair. At the end of this process, the cashmere is ready to be spun into yarns for weaving or knitting--the 4th and 5th steps.
  • Hand sorting for coarse hair takes place. After sorting, the fiber is washed to remove dirt, grease and any vegetable matter gathered in the collection process.
  • The textile fibres are then woven together to create a whole fabric panel then rolled into a tube.
  • Fabric roles are then laid out to dry and settle in a warm room so it doesn't fray
  • Finally the fabric rolls are then sent out to companies for it to be made into amazing textile creations.
