HOHHOT - The world's first cloned goat bearing superfine cashmere wool was born in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, the Bayannur city government announced Sunday.

The goat was born and will be raised in a base for animal husbandry research conducted by experts from agricultural universities and academies in Inner Mongolia and Southwest China's Yunnan province.

The cashmere fiber from the goat is less than 13.8 micrometers thick, much finer than the average of 15.8 micrometers grown by the famous Erlang Mountain goats in Inner Mongolia.
