What is the difference between scarf and pashmina?
I bet you have wondered at least once what is the difference between pashmina, scarf and scarf? Both have one thing in common: the way of use they wear around the neck.
However, they can be differentiated by material, but especially by season! In fact, each one is suitable for particular days, but also for some particular outfits
ORIGINAL PASHMINA: how to recognize it.
With the cold weather just around the corner, it’s time to pull out of our wardrobe, the pashmina: a timeless and prized garment. Especially when handcrafted, it is able to give a warm, soft and refined touch to your winter look.
Now pashmina is made from many more or less noble yarns , today I intend to show you what it is, how to recognize it and how to distinguish it from a simple scarf.
Pashmina is a very thin wool scarf that has become increasingly used in recent years because of its lightness and thus the comfort it provides.
Pashmina, is in fact the Persian name for cashmere. This is a very fine wool obtained from the Hircus goat, a species that lives in the mountains of Nepal and Mongolia.
It has been the Tibetans, for more than 3,000 years, who have used the hair that goats lose in the spring to make shawls with which to wrap themselves during the harsher times
In the 14th century, a Kashmiri king monopolized the production of pashmina by selling it in the best royal courts. With the growth of tourism in India, and the oriental influences in fashion in the 1900s, this garment has made a powerful comeback.
