Item details

I hand-spun this yarn with love and care on my Russian style supported spindle. This organic yarn is the ultimate in luxury fibres!

This luxurious yarn is created from genuine Mongolian goat cashmere - one of the rarest and most expensive fibres on earth, plied with a thread of mulberry silk. This yarn is both very soft and quite strong, thanks to the silk ply.

Being of Russian background myself, I was influenced by the Russian traditional spinning methods of Orenburg, a region famous for their hand-spun gossamer shawls. The women there spin one ply of cashmere with one ply of silk to create a perfect yarn, both soft and durable.

Length: 155m/170yd
Weight: 30g/1oz
Fiber: 90% Cashmere, 10% Silk
Thickness: This yarn was spun with some thicker and thinner areas, overall about Lace weight.
WPI: approx 17

From a smoke free home.

Thanks for looking!
