Using Cashmere In Mattresses
Cashmere wool, simply known as cashmere, is a fibre obtained from the soft under-fleece of the Cashmere goat. Cashmere is one of the most luxurious natural fibres in the world.
The ultra soft, fine fibres are absorbent, resilient, exquisitely smooth and offer luxurious, comfortable insulation from its lightweight make up which helps create the breathable micro-climate which is so important in a luxury Glencraft mattress.
Cashmere goats are historically raised in Mongolia, but many are bred in Iran, Tibet, India and China. In recent years American herders have also joined the international cashmere production market.
The fibres are highly versatile and are easily transformed into fine fabrics. The high moisture content allows insulation properties to change with the relative humidity in the air.
