Question: Why do some Vispring mattresses have cashmere wool in them?
Answer: Cashmere wool is not prized because of its rarity, but rather for its features of great strength, resilience, and comfort.
Cashmere wool is gleaned from the softest under-fleece of the Cashmere or Kashmir goat. The under-fleece is a downy, white, winter undercoat. The wool is collected in the spring when the animals naturally shed their winter coats. The goats are not harmed by the process.
Going back several thousand years, the goats were native to Kashmir, Tibet and Mongolia. Only in the last couple hundred years have the goats been introduced to other parts of the world. Today, Cashmere goats can be found all over the globe, including in America.
The long, silky fibers contribute a uniquely soft and sumptuous feel to our mattresses. Cashmere is significantly lighter than wool, yet more absorbent and resilient. Cashmere fibers are breathable and great for air circulation. They excel at wicking heat and moisture as well.
Cashmere wool is a superb addition to Vispring’s finest mattresses.
