Ever wonder where the finest cashmere comes from? We headed to the Bayanmunkh district of Khentii Province to get the answer to this question.

Traditionally, Mongolians have domesticated the five types of livestock and raised them at the grasslands of Mongolian steppes, without any influence of industrialization. In the winter, with temperatures hitting as low as -40 degrees Celcius, the goats develop a protective layer of undercoat. This soft and downy fiber known as cashmere naturally begins to shed during spring and herders with generations of expertise hand comb it to protect the goats from overheating and follow-up animal sicknesses such as ticks and lice.

Mr. Erdenetugs has the largest number of goats in the country and he showed us how his family has been raising these finest cashmere goats.
