Introduction to cashmere related knowledge
what is cashmere?
Cashmere is a thin layer of fine wool that grows on the outer skin of goats and covers the root of goat coarse hair. It grows when it is cold in winter to resist the wind and cold. It falls off after warming in spring and naturally adapts to the climate.
what is the difference between cashmere and wool?
Cashmere is different from wool. Wool grows on sheep and cashmere only grows on goats. Generally speaking, cashmere only refers to cashmere. Sheep do not have cashmere. Many people call the fine wool on sheep, which is somewhat similar to cashmere, as "Cashmere". In fact, it confuses the concept of cashmere and wool.
what are the characteristics of cashmere?
First, it is slim, soft and warm. Cashmere is a kind of fine animal fiber. The fineness of Albas cashmere is generally between 13um-15.5um, with high natural curl. It is closely arranged in spinning and weaving and has good holding force. Therefore, it has good warmth retention, which is 1.5-2 times that of wool. The outer scale of cashmere fiber is small and smooth, and there is an empty air layer in the middle of the fiber, so it is light and feels smooth and waxy.
Second, the color is natural and soft. Cashmere fiber has uniform fineness, small density, regular circular cross section, strong moisture absorption, can fully absorb dyes and is not easy to fade. Compared with other fibers, cashmere has the advantages of natural luster, softness, purity and beauty.
Third, it is flexible and elastic. Due to its large crimp number, crimp rate and crimp recovery rate, cashmere fiber is suitable for processing into knitwear with plump, soft and good elasticity. It is comfortable and natural to wear, and has good reduction characteristics, especially in that it does not shrink after washing and has good type retention.
◇ where is the main producing area of cashmere?
Cashmere production is extremely limited. A cashmere goat produces 50g-80g of cashmere free (net cashmere after removing impurities) every year. On average, the cashmere of every five goats is enough to make a Cashmere Sweater. Shangrong goat mainly grows in the alpine and semi desert areas of northern China, Mongolia, Iran and Afghanistan. The total cashmere output is only about 10000 tons, accounting for 0.2% of the total animal fiber. Cashmere production in China accounts for 60% of the total output, and that in Inner Mongolia accounts for 60% of the whole country. Among them, cashmere in Albas region in western Inner Mongolia has good quality, long length and fine fineness, which is highly praised as good cashmere at home and abroad. It won the Italian chaigna cashmere production award in 1985.
◇ what product is silk cashmere?
Silk cashmere is blended with real silk and cashmere, which greatly improves the fabric functionality of knitted fashion, so that its products not only retain the soft and high-grade essence of cashmere, but also overcome the shortcomings of cashmere products such as easy shrinkage and wrinkle, and wear more comfortably. Silk cashmere is not only famous for its high softness, strong warmth retention, moisture absorption and ventilation, but also for its expensive texture. Its moderate price has greatly increased its charm and is closer to modern people's life and value standards. It is a new fashion product popular in the international market in recent years, especially in Western Europe, North America and other places. According to relevant experts, French women who closely follow the fashion trend especially like silk and cashmere knitwear. A considerable number of silk and cashmere knitwear are exported to France every year.
There are several components of silk cashmere. One is 45% Cashmere and 55% silk; The other is 15% Cashmere and 85% silk. People can choose according to different seasons and personal preferences. It is appropriate to wear silk cashmere clothes in autumn and winter.
Blending of cashmere and soybean fiber
Cashmere products have a broad market space, and the limitation of raw materials seems to make the industry face "Exhaustion". Since this year, the successful development of soybean protein fiber by Chinese people has given the cashmere industry a feeling of "hidden willows and bright flowers". The Raw Material of soybean fiber is soybean meal after pressing oil. The source of raw materials is sufficient and the cost is very low. The price of one ton of soybean fiber is about 1 / 10 of that of cashmere. Soybean fiber is known as "artificial cashmere" in the industry because of its good warmth retention, softness and moisture absorption. The fabric blended with soybean fiber and cashmere not only retains the style of cashmere, but also has high strength, good luster and low price. This year, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shandong have successively prepared to build 10000 ton soybean fiber production lines. If soybean fiber can be widely used in the cashmere industry, the cashmere industry will usher in a new spring.
