Alashan cashmere comes from the Alashanzuoqi white cashmere goat. These unique cashmere goats are only found on the Alashan Terrace which is located to the west part of the Inner Mongolian plateau. Selective breeding for down production has occurred since 1970. The Alashanzuoqi cashmere goat produces extremely fine long white cashmere renowned for its gorgeous luster and ultra-soft fiber. The average doe down production is 251 grams at a diameter of 14.5 µm.
