She looks sassy and cool, and won’t mince words with you. Don’t let stylish eyelashes intimidate you! Underneath that piercing stare and elegant flair is a caring villager that has your back.
Let’s find out who Pashmina truly is in Animal Crossing: New Horizon in this Pashmina villager guide!
Who Is Pashmina in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
Pashmina is one of the Big Sister goat villagers in the game. She was first introduced in New Leaf and has continued to appear in subsequent games of the series, most notably in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Her birthday is on December 26th.
While she is called Pashmina in English localization, her original Japanese name is Baabara.
There is no reason given for this change, but there is a snooty sheep villager named Baabara, and it’s best not to get the two confused.
Pashmina’s English name is a reference to the type of hair fiber cut from goats and spun to make wool or cashmere, while her Japanese name is a pun on goat sounds and Barbara.
Pashmina is a brown goat with a big light blue ribbon on her dark brown hair, with straight-cut bangs on the front. Like other goat villagers, her head is wider at the top, with teal horns that have a slight curve towards the back.
What makes Pashmina stand out are her yellow eyes and lengthy eyelashes—-these give off an elegant air. Her signature look in New Horizons is a Black Rainbow Sweater. This is very different from her Corseted Shirt in New Leaf.
When you talk to her, you might notice her say “kidders!” as a catchphrase. You can probably easily guess that this is a reference to the word for young goat—- kid. In Japanese, her catchphrase is “kana” and means “(I) wonder”.
Pashmina is one of the Big Sister or Uchi villagers in Animal Crossing. This personality type was just introduced in New Leaf, along with Pashmina and other new villagers.
In Japanese, this personality is called Aneki, and it’s translated to Big Sister in the official New Horizons guide. For years, the Animal Crossing community called it Sisterly or Uchi, the latter a pronoun they use in Japanese.
Big Sister types can be quite blunt, and Pashmina is no different. Despite this, they are actually very caring and will show their “big sister” side to you. Try talking to Pashmina after being stung by wasps—-she’ll most likely give you medicine to soothe those stings!
Pashmina might not get along with cranky and snooty villagers. Interactions with them might result in mini arguments that aren’t really serious but can be quite entertaining to watch.
You also get a tomboyish vibe from Pashmina and other Big Sister villagers. They have a lower voice and will talk about roughhousing it with others. This tough exterior hides an empathetic side, with their own way of showing kindness. Quite a unique charm, don’t you think?
In New Horizons, Pashmina’s house has a tan-colored wooden tile roof, light brown cobblestone exterior walls, and a gray common door.
Inside, she has the Cute Red Wall, Cute Sofa, Diner Counter Table, System Kitchen Set—-all in red! This American diner theme is very different from her Rococo theme in previous games.
If you get her as a starter villager, Pashmina will get the Wooden Block Series as her furniture.
There are only 26 Big Sister villagers in New Horizons, and in Animal Crossing community rankings and articles, Pashmina continues to be a popular choice for Big Sister.
She is listed in the A category on our Tier List, and some sites even included her in the top 10, or even top five, popularity lists.
There are only eight goat villagers in the game and Pashmina is one of the popular choices for goat fans, along with Sherb and Chevre
How To Get Pashmina?
With only 26 Big Sister villagers and 8 goat characters, Pashmina is not that hard to meet on Mystery Island Tours. The fewer villagers there are in a category, the easier it is for you to meet them. There is a good chance that you’ll meet her during your island hopping.
What To Gift Pashmina in Animal Crossing?
Giving gifts to villagers is a wonderful activity in the game. With your gift, they can change their outfits, redecorate their homes, and increase your friendship points with them. The higher the friendship, the more chances they will give you a very special gift: their framed photo.
With Pashmina, she prefers Cool and Elegant styles. Clothing that fits this style is Mage’s Robe, Detective’s Coat, and Outback Hat, to name a few. For colors, she likes red and colorful items. Her house interior is proof of this!
Pashmina in the DLC
In Happy Home Paradise, she will request a vacation home with a Flower-Art Atelier theme. You’ll get the initial items Project Table, Flower Display Case, and Sewing Project.
From Rococo in New Leaf, a retro American diner in her New Horizons home, to a flower-filled vacation house—-Pashmina is one creative goat.
Pashmina fans, you’ll be happy to know that she is featured on a K.K. Slider album for the song Mr. K.K. Together with Bunnie, Maple, a few other villagers, and K.K. himself, Pashmina and the gang get the spotlight as students singing with their teacher, K.K.-sensei.
And that’s about it for Pashmina—-cool, elegant, and a tough shell with a soft heart. Animal Crossing has a lot of interesting villagers and Pashmina is definitely one of them!
