Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
These two videos show the creation of industrial produced cashmere yarn and fabric. The most precious of fibers, the process of gathering the soft downy undercoat of the goat yields small amounts of cashmere fiber, and is the reason that cashmere garments are so costly and precious. You will also see information about the world’s top cashmere producers, Todd & Duncan in Kinross, Scotland in the first video, and how the yarn is woven into fabric. Enjoy finding out about cashmere!
