Abstract: Pashmina, popularly known as ‘Cashmere’, is well known for its fineness, warmth, softness, desirable aesthetic value, elegance and timelessness in fashion. It is most luxurious, softer and warmer than superfine merino wool. The word pashmina is originated from a word ‘pashm’ means ‘soft gold’ in local language, and ‘wool’ in Persian language. India produces about 40-50 tonnes of fibre annually. The fibre is mostly used for preparing shawls with intricate designs by the artisans of Srinagar. An attempt has been made to provide comprehensive review covering production, processing and utilization aspects of pashmina fibre.
