Cashmere Blanket Cashmere comes from a goat's downy fleece undercoat which grows under their coat of longer more coarse guard hairs. The goats grow the undercoat in the winter to keep them warm; and shed it in the spring. The name cashmere comes from Kashmir, the mountainous region in Northern India and Pakistan, where Europeans first discovered it. Today, most of the world's cashmere supply comes from the Mongolian steppes of China and Mongolia. Cashmere is prized for the softness, fineness and length of its fibers. Linenplace is very pleased to offer 100% cashmere products made with certified highest quality cashmere from inner Mongolia. Our cashmere throw blanket and cashmere robes are the ultimate luxuries for your home and make perfect gifts.
