Cashmere is regarded as the best yarn, and when it is woven into clothing, the results are soft, opulent, and long-lasting while also costing more than other types of clothing. T-shirts, polo shirts, trousers, sweaters, coats, and other items are typically made with them.

This consumer base, which enjoys financial freedom and the ability to make judgments, will be essential to the expansion of the fashion sector.

However, the expensive cost of the product due to the substantial manufacturing costs is impeding the growth of this market, and the scarcity of raw materials is also posing problems for the cashmere clothing industry.
