Wool is produced on sheep, but the breeds of sheep are not the same.
Only a thin layer of fine velvet from the "goat", which grows on the outer skin of the goat and covers the roots of the goat's hair, can be called cashmere. The average fiber diameter is only 14.5 microns. Because of its English cashmere, it is also translated as "Casemi", the main producing area is in Inner Mongolia of China.
This kind of cashmere grows only when it is cold in winter every year, and it will naturally fall off after spring. Because of its scarce production, "cashmere" is called soft gold, and the most basic cashmere sweater weaving also needs the sum of the fluff of five small goats.

The ultra-fine cashmere is divided into three sub-grades by fiber length: 38mm or more is ultra-fine grade, 34-38mm is ultra-fine grade, and shorter than 34mm is ultra-fine grade.
The second grade is extra fine: 14.5-15.5 micron
The third grade is fine: 15.5-16 microns
