Pashmina goats of Himachal Pradesh
Pashmina is a special breed of goat indigenous to the high altitudes of Himalayas. Pashmina woollen textiles made with the fur of these goats are famous. During the spring season, the goats shed the inner wool and it is replaced by a new coat by winter. In Himachal Pradesh, these goats are commercially reared and the production of Pashmina clothes provide many employment options to the villagers.
The most attractive of Pashmina woollen products are the soft, light-weight colourful shawls made of them. There are many more sights in Himachal Pradesh, the state on the slopes of Himalayan ranges to make one’s travel a memorable experience.
