Alashan Cashmere


    The owner of Alashan is a self proclaimed “fiber geek”, having worked in every aspect of the cashmere business-from procuring and processing raw materials to working with fiber traders, dyers, spinners, weavers, knitters and designers to offer beautiful products to cashmere lovers all over the world.  In 2004, when the third-generation textile company he had worked at for 11 years closed their operations, he launched his own company and Alashan Cashmere was born. The name Alashan honors the area in western Inner Mongolia that is home to the finest cashmere. Goats thrive in this harsh region that has the perfect combination of geography, climate, and diet to produce superior cashmere-long, fine, white fiber that embraces vibrant dyes and can be spun into the finest of yarns.
