Our discovery of American Cashmere began as research into woolen mills to weave custom fabrics from American-produced fiber. Although we found that most of these specialty mills have closed, we were surprised to find independent farms with cashmere-producing goats across the country.
Our journey lead us to visit these farms whose goats come from some of the original breeding stock brought to the US. They boast quite a cosmopolitan heritage, with bloodlines tracing back to Australian, South American and Asian cashmere-producing goats.
We were inspired by these farmers' utmost dedication to the quality of their cashmere, the ethical processing of their fiber, and the familial care of their animals.
J. M. GENERALS uses prime cashmere fibers combed from goats by hand, with a highly desired combination of fineness and loft. Working with this light and luxuriously soft American Cashmere fiber fills us and these happy goats with warm pride.
