Fourteen female Alashan white cashmere goats were investigated for fibre finesses (diameter) and coefficient of variation of fineness (CV). The investigation focused on the same animals combed at 1, 3 and 4 years of age and fibres were collected from 10 different body areas. A statistically significant effect was observed for both year of collection and body areas. The present paper suggests that the fibres of one-year old animals should be kept distinct from older ones, likewise fibres from upper part of the body should be separated from the others. © 2016 Published by Elsevier B.V.
