Book Description Skira, Milano (Milan), Italy, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: G. Milk chocolate cloth, white and color illus. dust jacket, 181 pp., profusely illus. in color. Uses stunning on-the-ground color photographs to document the mountainous journey to Mongolia to acquire the ultra-soft cashmere combed from baby Hircus goats. It's 15% finer than the fibers acquired from the animals once they become adults, even though their coats are pretty darned soft, too. See the landscape, the nomadic goatherders, the non-invasive combing process, and the kids and adult animals themselves. NOW you know where cashmere comes from. A. Dor. A. Ble.
