Pashmina means on Persian as well as to various Asian and Arabic languages quite simply Scarf. So if you are offered a scarf with 100% pashmina at a bazaar they got a 100% scarf in which but no particular fiber be must. Often you can see the designation 50% silk and 50% pashmina. Mostly this is a mixture of cheapest China silk and acrylic fibers.
As real cashmere may be called only the undercoat of the cashmere goat.
But even there great caution is advised. Since cashmere is very expensive and very rare are often used favorable fibers or sheep’s wool admixed.

Cashmere is a Natural fiber. In some cases, the fibers are somewhat shorter and thus emerge from the fabric off. High quality cashmere, with us from the Luxe category does not fluff. At Ponchos and sweaters, however, even with the highest-quality qualities is a Lint unavoidable because there is friction due to wear.

Itch Cashmere scarves?
Cashmere is not a scaly wool such as that of the sheep or alpaca. For this reason, the fiber itself can not actually itch. However, the cheaper scarves use very short fibers, which can then escape from the fabric (this is called pilling, looks like small balls) these can cause itching. Pashmina shawls made of 1st quality cashmere usually do not itch even very sensitive shawl wearers(1st quality shawls).
