Pashmina Goats - Ladakh (Photo by Redtigerxyz - Wikipedia)

Cashmere

Down-soft Pashmina shawl
of combed and carded
washed and woven moult
hugging my shoulders

how do you like
your new home
so far from hidden undercoat
of a Tibetan goat?

    I like how you go to the source! The process of de-hairing seems much too mechanical as a description for what results.

    Ah yes…a new home. I love my pashminas, although some are fakey and have never seen a goat.
