Impact:

June Cashmere's 100% cashmere fiber is collected directly from Kyrgyz shepherds living on small family farms along the ancient Silk Road amidst the soaring mountains of Central Asia. June is the Kyrgyz word for animal fiber, which is a centuries-old vital resource and essential element of the nomadic lifestyle.

Although these goats have long produced fiber capable of competing on the world market, until recently Kyrgyz shepherds had virtually no access to international buyers offering fair market value. June Cashmere is committed to changing this situation so that their cashmere has an honored identity as one of the world’s finest fibers.
