Fiber Box launched by CCMI

Cashmere and Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute (“CCMI”) announces availability of Fiber Box, a tool for testing laboratories and comparable organizations engaged in fiber analysis. Fiber Box contains samples useful for analysts when encountering fibers difficult to identify. The sample fibers contained in Fiber Box are not “standards” of the species of animals, but are “reference samples” for assisting identification of animal fibers.

Fiber Box contains samples of various types of cashmere fiber and that of other animals whose fibers resemble cashmere. There are both typical and atypical fibers of the species. The samples also contain fibers with surfaces modified chemically, physically, or both, and bleached or otherwise artificially treated fibers. The sample fibers were collected through various routes. In order to ensure authenticity, all the samples were examined by multiple laboratories by light or scanning electron microscope or both. In some cases DNA was also analyzed.

Fiber Box is made up of 48 samples. Each sample is 2 to 3 grams labeled and packaged in a plastic tube. All 48 samples are contained in a briefcase style box for ease of use. The 48 samples that were selected for the Fiber Box are 25 cashmere, 3 non-cashmere goat, 1 cashgora, 3 camel hair, 8 sheep wool, 7 yak and 1 ibex.

The CCMI Fiber Box will sell for 1000 USD (one thousand U.S. Dollars). The price includes the freight to the destination but does not include the import duty of the importing country.
