There is a term called "jal pashmina" in Nepal, which means "water pashmina" in English. Jal pashmina refers to a type of scarf made from a mix of pashmina wool and other fibres such as silk, polyester or cotton, giving it a soft and shiny feel. This type of scarf is particularly popular in the Kathmandu Valley and is often worn during special occasions and festivals.

These water pasmina scarves are 50% thinner than regular pashminas and are also called summer pashminas, but they are also comfortable in winter. So you can wear them all year round. These scarves can be worn on both sides. They are quite light and fall nicely.

The actual colours of this item may vary due to differences in monitor colour depth. The colours shown are as close as possible to the actual colours of the item.

Background information
Pashmina is a general name for clothing made from a type of wool obtained from the mountain goat that lives in the high altitudes of the Himalayan Mountains and the Tibetan Plateau in Asia (usually between 3600 and 4200 meters). Cashmere shawls have been manufactured in Kashmir and Nepal for thousands of years, but the Indians never called it 'pashmina'. They were popularly called Kashmiri wool scarves. What is called pashmina has its origin in Nepal where people know it as cultural heritage, the hand weaving of scarves with the famous fringes and the hand dyeing of the scarves.
