SUSTAINABLE CASHMERE YARN FOR KNITTERS
Our SUSTAINABLE CASHMERE yarn is spun specifically for the discerning knitter - you don't necessarily need to be the most experienced knitter in the world to want to work with our yarn, but you do need to be able to judge quality when you see it: and here it is!!!
Our 2016 yarn is made into into 50 gram skeins of UNDYED beautiful yarn to make up into our newest patterns......keep posted for more designs as they come in! We are anticipating a pair of absolutely beautiful newborn hats from a famous knitter friend of ours.....stay tuned
Double-ply, lace weight, utterly unique, traceable, unadulterated 100% cashmere yarn produced entirely by Cashmere goats raised by us in Italy and gently hand-combed every spring to carefully harvest every last fiber - every step of the process to the finished yarn is done locally, and is garanteed or your money back. Available in cream
That part is obvious, but what is not quite so obvious is that our cashmere comes from healthy, well-managed Cashmere goats raised at pasture in the lovely Tuscan countryside. There are no toxic products used to process the raw fiber into yarn and we are one of the few - if not the only - cashmere producers who can document the traceability and non toxicity of every once of cashmere we sell. Think about it!
2017 introduces another option to our yarns: a blend of 15% Bamboo mixed with 85% Cashmere: 50 gram skeins in undyed Cappuccino color or cocoa. This yarn holds its shape a little better than the 100% cashmere.
