Description


This yarn actually represents the icing on the cake of our new blends for knitters. Since Giulia started breeding cashmere goats in South Piedmont, we’ve thought of creating a yarn with that heavenly fibre. So we decided to go through spinning process we had never used before, and we relied on a small mill for blending and spinning. The 2 ply structure provides a perfect thickness for hand knitting, yet maintaining a generous yardage.

It is incredibly soft and smooth with a natural shine proper of the noble untreated fibres contined. It’s non scratchy of course, and perfect for all patterns that require a certain stitch definition, such as lace shawls of precious sweaters.
