2018 Italian cashmere Millspun


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.


A HEAVENLY BLEND

COMPOSITION:

50% Untreated mulesing-free merino wool

25% Italian alpaca

25% Italian cashmere


Fingering (UK 4 ply) weight with 50g – 225m ca.

Gauge: 10cm in 24-26 sts and 3,5mm needles

This blend is composed of the finest unbleached milky white cashmere and a naturally light grey untreated and mulesing free merino wool, so that we get a balanced strength and a pearly hue that really makes our hearts dream.

A ROYAL BLEND

10% Italian alpaca


Fingering (UK 4 ply) weight with 50g – 225m ca.

Gauge: 10cm in 24-26 sts and 3,5mm needles

In these blends we decided to combine the natural colours of cashmere and alpaca with the dyed silk, as we wanted to create shades of colour that is only possible by carding the fibers together. The result is more delicate than in the handspun yarns, when you see these beauties in the sunlight you can appreciate all the hues hidden inside.
