About Cashmere Direct
We are a design and manufacturing company specialising in fine cashmere knitwear. We have a flexible approach to our customers requirements with design teams based in England and Mongolia.
We have manufacturing facilities located in both the capital city of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar and Inner Mongolia, China. Having different facilities allows Cashmere Direct to supply knitted and woven Pure Cashmere, whilst also having the ability to create more complex designed blended fibre garments.
We are one of the only Cashmere companies who have a vertical manufacturing operation. We collect raw Cashmere directly from the herdsmen of Mongolia and manufacture and deliver the finished knitwear to our global customers.
We only use PURE Mongolian and Inner Mongolian Cashmere
Known to be the LONGEST of all cashmere fibres (40 - 42mm)
We control EVERY process in house
All our Cashmere is MACHINE WASHABLE (30 degrees)
Because we don’t use short fibres our garments perform as designed (Least Pilling)
Cashmere Direct is a shareholder in Cashmere Holding, the largest exporter of pure cashmere knitwear from Mongolia.
