Are you buying the authentic product?

One method of testing for true pashmina is to take one of the fringes of the shawl and hold a lit match to the end. When wool burns, it smells like hair burning. If a fabric has synthetic in it, it has a slightly chemical smell. But the true sign is that when you blow out the flame, there is a little hard ‘bead’ left, which stays attached to the fabric. Just burn the end of one of the fringes, and you will be able to tell.
