What is cashmere yarn?
The ultimate luxury fiber, Cashmere is an amazingly soft fiber from the Kashmir goat. It is harvest during the goats annual molting season when shedding their dense coats. Cashmere is available in natural shades, but accepts dyes beautifully providing endless color possibilities. It mixes well with other yarns to add softness and drape. When knitting with cashmere remember it is truly a treasure; it takes one goat four years to produce enough yarn to knit just one sweater.
