5. Weaving
As pashmina is very soft, its yarn is also very delicate & fragile, thus requiring very skilled craftsmanship of weaving. The weaving of the traditional 100% pashmina shawls is therefore done on handlooms. Weaving in this case is done with a shuttle carrying the soft pashmina yarn either through pashmina yarn warp or the fine but strong silk yarn warp. It takes about few days to weave a single pashmina shawl. The weaving technique differs according to the type of pashmina products. Different types of looms are required to weave different types of pashmina products like shawl, stoles, blankets, scarves, fabric, etc.,. Knitting machine are used for sweaters, cardigans, mufflers, caps and other knitted items etc.
