What is pashmina?

Pashmina is a term applied to the wool, and products made from the wool, derived from the undercoat of the Capra hircus goat, a domestic breed raised primarily at high elevations in Asia. Pashmina is the very finest, lightest most luxurious natural fibre. It is NOT a garment. In the last decade the word has developed a generic meaning and many people have been misinformed, but the Government of Nepal is taking great steps to set this right.

What factors contribute to the quality in pashmina shawls?

The main factors, of course, are the specific fabric blend, and the style of looming ("hand" or "machine"). A relatively minor cost factor is the dye. We use Swiss dyes to compete the quality.

What is a 100% pashmina, 70% Pashmina 30% Silk Blended Pashmina and 50% pashmina 50% Silk Blended Pashmina?

Actually these are the quality of pashmina wool. 100% pashmina refers to the pure pashmina wool and no silk is blended in 100% pashmina. 70% pashmina and 30% silk blended pashmina refers to pashmina wool that has the mixture of 70% pure pashmina wool and 30% silk. And the 50% pashmina and 50% silk blended pashmina has a mixture of 50% pure pashmina and 50% silk.
