Pashmina is a fine type of cashmere wool. The textiles made from it were first woven in Kashmir. The name comes from the persian پشمینه / pašmina, meaning "made from wool". Pashmina came to be known as 'cashmere' in the West because Europeans first encountered this fibre in Kashmir. The wool comes from a number of different breeds of the cashmere goat; such as the changthangi or Kashmir pashmina goat from the Changthang Plateau in Tibet and part of the Ladahk region, the malra from the Kargil area in the Kashmir region, the chegu from Himachi Pradesh in the HImalayas of northern India, and the chyangara or Nepalese pashmina goat from Nepal. Often shawls called Shaminah are made from this material in Kashmir and Nepal; these shawls are hand spun and woven from the very fine cashmere fiber.
