Naadam Cashmere Beanie (Grey) - Kaufmann Mercantile

Designed in the U.S. and produced in Mongolia, these pure cashmere beanies are made using fibers harvested directly from nomadic herders on the Mongolian Steppe. Due to harsh and cold climates, the herds produce a fiber that is long and soft, resulting in non-pilling, non-itching and ultra comfortable cashmere wear. The beanies are knit in 7-gauge, meaning there are seven needles hooks per inch on the needle bed, creating a fine rib that keeps out the chill.



A percentage of profits from these beanies goes to the World Bank to fund livestock insurance, ensuring that the livelihoods of herders are protected. 

Use & Care

Dry clean or hand wash and lay flat to dry.

Production & Design

Named after an important Mongolian holiday and festival, Naadam works to provide fine cashmere garments to the consumer while preserving and sustaining the nomadic herder’s way of life. Climate change and an increasing lack of pastures, which leads to deserts and the dying of goats, have endangered the traditional nomadic lifestyle. Out of Mongolia’s population of 3 million, 1.5 million are nomadic. To support the herders and the fine cashmere products they help to produce, a percentage of Naadam’s proceeds are given to the World Bank, where it can be invested into livestock insurance.



Naadam founders Matthew Scanlan and Diederik Rijsemus, armed with backgrounds in global investments and banking, travel to Mongolia four to five times a year. The trip entails a 15-hour flight to South Korea, an 18-hour connection into Ulan Bataar (the capital of Mongolia), then off-roading for 20 hours to the nomadic ger settlements (a ger is like a yurt, though with straight roof supports as opposed to curved). Nomadic herders follow patterns of pasture growth and change locations about eleven times a year. Matthew and Diederick stay with the nomadic herding families in a traditional Mongolian ger and chip in by herding and milking goats and other chores.
