Real pashmina shawls can be expensive. They are made of cashmere that is produced from the hair of goats in South Asia. The cashmere is often blended with 30% silk to produce a soft and smooth fabric. This makes pashmina shawls a special gift for women who are dearest to you.
To test the authenticity of the shawl, try pulling the whole shawl through a ring. It should pass through easily. Otherwise, you are holding a shawl made of viscose but being passed off as real pashmina.
If you are on a tight budget, you can buy the silk or viscose versions. Just make sure you pay the right price for the right product.
