    A professional trader from Leh, a city in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, demonstrates a simple trick that lets you verify that your shawl is made of real fine cashmere.

    If you can manage to pull the whole shawl through a very small ring – it means it’s real! The shawl on the video is made of pashmina, the finest type of cashmere wool. It comes from four distinct breeds of Cashmere goats that live only in the northern regions of India, China, Nepal and Pakistan – that is why genuine pashmina is an expensive and rare material.
