Goat with superfine wool cloned in China
The world’s first cloned goat bearing superfine Cashmere wool was born in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
The Cashmere fibre from the goat is less than 13.8 micrometres thick, much finer than the average of 15.8 micrometres of the famous Erlang Mountain goats in Inner Mongolia. Cashmere wool is obtained from Cashmere goats and a few other types of goat.
