THE RING TEST
It is said that the Purest Pashmina Shawl will pass through the tiniest of rings…
Pashmina is the finest grade of cashmere fiber. It has a weaving style which is so thin, light and delicate that the whole shawl can pass through a ring.
The fineness of the pashm wool is between 14-16 microns in contrast to the finest sheep’s wool which is 23 microns and of human hair which is up to 200 microns.
Real pashminas are very soft and warm to touch, owing to the fineness of the hair. All our plain cashmere pashmina pieces, especially the stoles and the scarves match the quality of shahtoosh and pass the ring test.
