Chances are if you bought a non-commercial paisley pashmina from the source, you wouldn’t want to wear it due to the coarseness of the material from which it is made, the underbelly of a Himalayan goat. However, to make a pashmina scarf or shawl more comfortable and commercially enticing, manufacturers will put the pashmina wool through a softening process which includes the addition of silk with the end result being similar to cashmere.
