Possible Pashmina Shortage

clipped from ww1.prweb.com
The BBC reports, Tens of thousands of goats that provide the wool for Kashmir's world famous Pashmina shawls are facing death because of unexpectedly cold weather.

I have to admit that my favorite purchase from Hong Kong was my beautiful Pashmina. It really is a luxury good. Light as air. Warm as a heavy wool blanket. One of the best parts of travel is finding a little something to pack into your suitcase. Ahhhhhh, the perfect cover for that flight home.
