Conclusion

Animal fibers are produced by a wide range of species found across all continents except Antarctica. Some of these species have been exported to other continents, and rare fibers may now be grown far from their traditional origins cashmere, for example, now grown in small quantities in Europe.

Animal fiber accounts for a small proportion of world textile fiber production, and even with improved genetic selection and animal husbandry techniques, it is unlikely to increase. It is now regarded as a luxury commodity because of its high quality (fineness, softness, warmth, and handle), its rarity, and its exotic image. Because of this, it commands a high unit price, which covers the difficulties of production and harvesting, often in remote locations. However, expectations for quality of the raw product continue to rise, and only those systems focused on maintaining and improving fiber quality will remain financially viable in the long term.
