Name:Tibetan antelope / Chiru (Pantholops hodgsonii)
Micron Range: 7 - 11
Shahtoosh is a Persian word meaning "King of Wools". Microns range from 7-11. It is sourced from Tibetan antelope (Chiru) and is now banned due to over exploitation in Ladakh. It is the world's most expensive natural animal fibre. Shahtoosh shawls have been made since centuries by Kashmiri artisans in India. They are so fine that a shawl can pass through a wedding ring and is prized as the most expensive apparel in the world.
