Call Doris at 306-492-4999. Pashmina refers to a type of fine Cashmere Wool and the textiles made from it. The name comes from Pashmineh, made from Persian pashm (wool). The wool comes from “Chanthangi” or Pashmina goat, which is a special breed of goat indigenous to the high altitudes of the Himalayas. Pashmina shawls are handspun, woven and embroidered in Kasmir and made from fine Cashmere finer. The goat sheds it’s winter coat every spring. One goat shed approximately 80-170g (3-6 ounces) of fibre. To meet the demand, the goats are n ow commercially reared in the Gobi Desert area in Inner and Outer Mongolia. The region has identical harsh weather conditions to those of the Himalayan region and is thereby apt for the goats to grow this inner wool but also has acres of grazing ground to produce Cashmere economically and commercially. During spring (the moulting season) the goats shed this inner wool, which regrows in winter. The inner wool is collected and spun to produce Cashmere. The quality of the Cashmere produced in the Gobi Desert is just as high as that produced in the Himalayas, while the costs are less. HISTORY – Pashmina Goats LADAKH The fibre is also known as Pashm or Pashmina for its use in handmade shawls of Kashmir. The woollen shawls made from wool in Kashmir find written mention in Indian texts between 3rd centre BC and the 11th century AD. However, the founder of the cashmere wool industry is traditionally held to be the 15th centre rules of Kashmir, Zayn-ul-Abidin, who introduced weavers from Central Asia.
I have been coming to Cedar Lodge for the past seven years – usually twice a year. When I walk into the main area I start to feel my tension drain away. This is a very low key serene place. The staff are wonderful caring people who always take the time to chat and make you feel at home. The meals are absolutely fabulous!! I have been on numerous cruises and the meals here are comparable to the ones on the cruise ships. You can tell that they are cooked with love. I truly appreciate the fact that there are no TV’s or phones in the rooms – that adds to the relaxing calming atmosphere. This is definitely one of my favourite places to visit!! S.

Cedar Lodge provides the perfect environment for creating meaningful successful ‘people experiences’ which explains why I and so many other organizations, groups rebook again and again. It’s what happens here … the experience itself that makes Cedar Lodge so unique. REST RESTORE RENEW … It provides the perfect setting to step away from life’s hurried pace to rest, restore and renew, and when people are relaxed, well nourished and nurtured, everything seems to improve – thinking, communication, how you relate to each other, willingness to share / collaborate … the list is endless. That’s what make it the perfect setting for the annual weekend retreats I host and why it’s my first choice for venue. You can almost watch people unwinding, slowing down, relaxing. The Cedar Lodge team’s TLC is evident in so many ways, the food is fabulous and cooked with love, the presentation is amazing and the table settings are always nicely arranged. The retreaters consistently comment on feeling so comfortable and nurtured here. Cedar Lodge’s future plans include work on the lodging rooms themselves which are clean and frills free, which sometimes may surprise those accustomed to having all amenities in their room. We found we spent very little time in our actual rooms.We and other lodgers seem to migrate to the beautiful great room where the coffee/tea water is always on, and there are plenty of comfy couches to relax in,visit or chillax and look out at the lake. Very tranquil. For those who are looking for a place to provide a time out to rest, restore and renew, Cedar Lodge is it. It is my first choice for the Weekend Women’s Retreats I host annually ! S.

I have been to Cedar Lodge twice with the Kipling Kloggers and I want to say that I loved it there. I hope to be there with the cloggers again this spring. Best wishes for your continued wonderful work. L.Brickley
I was at Cedar Lodge during a school field trip for 2 nights. February 2013. The food has a huge delicious variety – the place was great for us kids to explore. The bedrooms were small but cozy. The grand dining hall is quite the place with its wheelbarrow lighting and the stage. The view is very impressive and amazing. I highly recommend this resort. Michelle Sinclair
Thank You. Just want to say we had a wonderful Board and Staff Planning Weekend at your facility in January of 2013. We needed to make some changes in the meeting room scenarios and your staff just made things happen! I totally appreciate your flexibility and we look forward to a long term commitment at your facility. Everything was wonderful – food was amazing !! …and I think that our staff should connect sometime with your staff, as we would love to just come out and learn from your food decorators how to carve “lemon mice” and “love birds” from apples some day. I appreciate all that you do! We already re-booked for next year! Thank-you from the DSI Staff! Executive Director/Dance Saskatchewan Inc
