A/span>n interesting news is the direction that South Africa is going with it's Cashmere. In case you are unaware, South Africa is one of the leaders in apparel class wool production. Other countries include Australia, New Zealand and the USA. They are actually also known for production of Mohair, which comes from the Angora goat. SA has now decided to really cultivate it's wool industry with a special focus on Cashmere. A quote from the article titled "South African Cashmere" on IFashion's website states, "Since 1996, a national research initiative on developing a viable cashmere industry for South Africa based on indigenous goat breeds, such as the Boer Goat has been in effect. The partners in the project are Grootfontein and Döhne Agricultural Department Institutes (ADI) and the CSIR, in close cooperation with the Cashmere Working Group."
