Yarn and Yarn Kits

Cashmere is the most luxurious of all fibers. It is unbelievably soft to the touch yet extremely warm for it's weight because of it's hollow core structure. So a scarf made of only an ounce of yarn can be extremely warm and soft next to your skin. A cashmere goat will produce only 2-8 ounces of fiber a year. It then needs to be dehaired which up to now was very labor intensive. This yarn is commercially processed in Canada by Mini Mills, Ldt., the masters at processing cashmere yarn. It comes in two colors, a creme and a medium brown. It's 3,000 yards a pound and spun in a lace weight. Each skein is 185 yards and sells for $20.00 a skein. Don't be fooled like I was by less expensive yarn. You will get what you pay for. The less expensive yarn will not give you the results you want. American cashmere is a little longer fiber, thus it doesn't have to be spun so tightly. The resulting yarn is very soft, yet strong and handmade items will have a wonderful halo.
