Pashmina is a fine type of cashmere wool. The textiles made from it were first woven in Kashmir.
Pashmina came to be known as ‘cashmere’ in the West because Europeans first encountered this fibre in Kashmir. The wool comes from a number of different breeds of the cashmere goat; such as the changthangi or pashmina goat from the Changthang Plateau in Ladakh region, the malra from the Kargil area in the Ladakh region, the chegu from Himachal Pradesh in the Himalayas of northern India, Often shawls called shahmina are made from this material in Kashmir ; these shawls are hand spun and woven from the very fine cashmere fibre
