How many goats does it take to make a sweater?

 

A single cashmere goat does not produce a lot usable cashmere fibre – only about 4 ounces (110 grams). It takes cashmere fibre from 4-8 cashmere goats to make one cashmere sweater. In comparison to wool, one sheep can produce enough fibre to make 4 wool jumpers.
