Pure wool shawls called raffal which have different counts of wool - 40, 60, 80 etc.,if the count increases so does the price .

Kashmiri Pashmina Shawls: Pashmina is known for its softness. Pashmina yarn is spun from the hair of the ibex found at 14,000 ft above the sea level, Pure Pashmina is expensive but mixed Pashmina with wool is less expensive

Shahtoosh , the legendary ‘ring shawl’ is famous for its lightness, softness and warmth. But it is a banned item now because hair of the Tibetan antelope's throat are painstakingly collected until there are enough for a shawl.
