What is Pashmina?
The word 'Pashmina' (پشمینه) comes from the Persian word 'Pashm' which means wool. Over many centuries, it has universally come to be known as a special kind of wool obtained from the outer skin of the goats living in the high altitudes of the Himalayas bordering Nepal and Indian Kashmir in South Asia. Cashmere pashmina scarf, wrap, stole and shawl are hand-spun in Indian Kashmir. These are deliciously comfy, soft, light and very warm, and, are destined to be a heir loom. In recent years, the scarves have been frequently worn by the celebrities that the words pashmina fashion and wedding pashmina have become well known.

Comparison of the Qualities
The important characteristics of pure pashmina wrap are its warmth, softness, weight, feel of the touch and the looks. Shamina is the lightest, warmest and the softest. It has the best of the feel and touch and it has the best of gentle looks. The next in order of priority is 100% pure cashmere pashmina. The difference between the two is the quality of fiber. The third in priority is silk pashmina stole. Ring pashmina is as soft as shamina and has the same good looks and is gentle to feel. As it is one ply, it is the lightest of all four and the least warm of all four. Pure cashmere and shamina wrap are better suited for party and formal wear. These are best suited for weddings as a good women clothing accessory both for the bride and the bridesmaid. The other two are better suited for casual wear.
