Camel's Hair Shawls. The cashmere shawl, which is made of the fine hair of the Cashmere goat, is sometimes erroneously called Camel's hair. The high price of these shawls is due, not to the cost of the raw materials, but to the fact that each one is a splendid work of art, that is slowly and patiently wrought and sold as great pictures are sold, for a price befitting their artistic worth.
