Cashgora is a type of goat; a cross between angora goats (mohair) and cashmere producing goats. These animals are raised in Tajikistan and Afghanistan. The fiber is washed in Afghanistan and the yarn is handspun by co-operatives of women in Tajikistan. The label on each skein features a photo of the spinner. This yarn is available in hand-dyed colors and 2 undyed colors; Pamirs and Scree.
