however, cashmere is probally one of the best animal products to wear ...
it isnt taken from the animal by force, its taken when the animal is naturally moulting, once a year.
the cashmere comes from the downy soft fur under the top layers of fur from the goat... kinda like down feathers are softer and warmer than top layers of feathers
in order for that soft downy fur to be top quality it has to be naturally shed/moulted and not torn and so on and handled very delicatly.
id put it in the same catergory as wool, its not harming that animal at all by taking it, and in fact is naturally shed and very beneficial to humans
