2018 Italian cashmere Millspun
In this section all our italian cashmere blended yarns; they are worsted spun in a very small local mill near Biella, that is capable to work with limited amounts of fibre at a time and can grant that this supreme fibre is not damaged or cut during the process. Our recurrent yarn is A Heavenly Blend - that we create in a light oatmeal base, combing together fine wool, fawn and grey alpaca and fawn cashmere. This artisan exquisite yarn is then hand dyed in our studio in Genova. It comes in 50g 2ply skeins in fingering weight. Each year we create some more limited edition cashmere yarns, composed of luxury fibres like tussah silk, alpaca and merino wool, that can be either hand dyed before or after spinning, in order to achieve truly unique results.
