Product Description:Cute cardigan in the softest cashmere. It is in the wraparound model and has a narrow ruffle along the edges and a bit wider ruffle at the bottom of the sleeves. The color is offwhite. 100% kashmere Spirit of Maya's A-class cashmere comes from goats Capra hircus. The goats live in the inner Mongolian highlands, on a farm two hours from the city of Baotou in the country. The farm belongs to a relative of the owner of the yarn factory. The goats can move freely around in the mountains, but they also have a barn where they can stay in for the night. Children can be with their mothers until they are large enough to fend for themselves. The goats are very valuable because of their cashmere is so expensive. Therefore, they are treated well throughout their lives. You can get good cashmere from goat Capra hircus until about 5-6 years old. Then they are left alone. They live for about 10 years. Nothing goes to waste, so when the buck is too old local people will use it for food and use their skins as rugs and blankets. Spirit of Maya orders around 200kg yarn every time they place an order. They test the net regularly in a certified lab, as there are a lot of cheating going on in the cashmere business. They follow the "Cashmere and Camel Hair Manufacturers Instititutes" rules and regulations.
