In spring the light-as-down, gossamer-like new growth is combed from beneath the Cashmere Goats' outer fleeces by the herdsmen of Mongolia. The goats thrive best in this high upland world, growing long outer fleeces which signify an abundance of luxuriant new growth beneath.
It takes more than three goats a whole year to produce enough raw cashmere for Lochcarron of Scotland to make a single sweater or cardigan - more than four kilometres of incredibly fine yarn for each garment - and it can take as many as twenty-four goats to provide the yarn for an overcoat.


Have been an integral part of Lochcarron of Scotland's operation for over 100 years. Your guide will put you "Through the Mill" and in the process take you through all aspects of production from spun yarn to the finished article.
