The cashgora fiber is harvested from goats produced by villagers in the Pamir Mountains of Eastern Tajikistan and also close to Samarkand in Uzbekistan. Cashgora goats were developed by crossbreeding Russian fiber goats and local cashmere-type goats. They produce a slightly coarser and longer fiber compared to cashmere (approximately 17-21 micron). Cashgora is a renewable resource – it protects the goat during winter but is no longer needed in the spring. Women comb their goats in April and sell the fiber.
