This handspun yarn is pretty close to the ultimate in luxury. One of the finest and most sought after fibers anywhere in the world. I use only the very best quality and finest possible cashmere fiber imported from Mongolia where the wool produced by the Cashmere goats is the best we can obtain. The cashmere is hand spun by a woolen method into a fine yarn.
I will work with you to insure that your new Cashmere yarn will be just right for your planned project. I have made up this chart of Guidelines and Standards for common yarn weights to help you choose your weight and yardage.
The hand spun Pure Cashmere Yarn
This yarn is carefully and lovingly handspun in my home studio on my Louet S45 and hand dyed in my own kitchen, just for you to your exact specifications. You may order as many skeins as you need for your project. No more scrambling to find something small to knit just because you bought a one-of-a-kind skein of handspun.
I really love this yarn. It is a huge favorite with my customers. It feels just heavenly going through your hands while working with it and is such a pleasure to wear. It is buttery soft and excellent for next to the skin projects.
I only spin the 2 ply as thick as a DK weight because I don’t want to compromise the integrety of the yarn. The fiber is so fine and relatively short and we don’t want it to shed or pill. For a thicker yarn try holding 2 stands together or email me with your request and I will work out a price for a 3 ply.
This yarn is suitable for wearing next to the skin and is especially suitable for knitting for baby. It would be lovely spun in a lace weight for a scarf or a lightweight shawl, in Sport, DK or Worsted weight for sweaters, tops, hats and mitts, gloves, scarves, neck warmers, blankets or shawls, baby sweaters and baby blankets, almost anything you can dream up.
