CASHMERE WOOL

LUXURY WOOL

SOCK WOOL


CASHMERE WOOL

Cashmere is one of the most high-quality wool fibres and among the most luxurious yarns in the world because the delicate fibres make it particularly exquisite. It is warming and snug, which is why it has been used to manufacture textiles for thousands of years.

Cashmere Lace is 100% pure cashmere wool. The fibres come from Mongolia and the yarn is manufactured in Italy. Only underwool is used for this special yarn. Cashmere wool keeps you warm, regulates body temperature and feels very light and soft against the skin.

Industrially manufactured sweaters are usually made using 2-ply yarns, but Cashmere Lace is 4-ply and made of the finest, particularly long hairs. This prevents linting, it tends not to pilling and you can enjoy your knitted garment for longer.

Cashmere Lace is a very delicate and thin yarn, it is therefore ideal for particularly delicate knitting projects or as a second thread for delicate knitting projects with slightly larger needles.

Cashmere 6/28 is made of 100% pure cashmere wool. The fibres come from Mongolia and the yarn is manufactured in Italy. Only underwool is used for this special yarn. Cashmere wool keeps you warm, regulates body temperature and feels very light and soft against the skin.

Industrially manufactured sweaters are usually made using 2-ply yarns, but Cashmere 6/28 is 6-ply and made of the finest, particularly long hairs.
This prevents linting, it tends not to pilling and you can enjoy your knitted garment for longer.

Thanks to its yarn count, cashmere 6/28 is extremely versatile and can be used for many different knitting projects.

Cashmere Worsted is made of 100% cashmere wool. The fibres come from Mongolia and the yarn is manufactured in Italy. Only underwool is used for this special yarn. Cashmere wool keeps you warm, regulates body temperature and feels very light and soft against the skin.

Industrially manufactured sweaters are usually made using 2-ply yarns, but Cashmere Worsted is thicker than cashmere 6/28, comes with a 12-ply twist and is made of the finest, particularly long hairs. This prevents linting, it tends not to pilling and you can enjoy your knitted garment for longer.

Cashmere Worsted is the thickest of our fine cashmere yarns.

Atlantis is one of our finest yarns, it is made of 70% pure cashmere and 30% mulberry silk and spun and dyed in Italy.

The delicate, particularly long cashmere fibres come from Mongolia and are exclusively made from the underwool of the cashmere goat. The mulberry silk gives the yarn a beautiful sheen as well as robustness. The length of the fibres and the fibre blend
prevents linting, it tends not to pilling and you can enjoy your knitted garment for longer.

Atlantis is a thin yarn that is ideal for scarves and shawls as well as for sweaters and shirts and the combination of cashmere and silk means it can be worn all the year round.


LUXURY WOOL

It is hard to describe these exclusive yarns; you have to feel them for yourself. Once you have felt them, even high-quality cashmere wool will no longer seem soft enough.

Alaska 2 is a two-thread spun yarn made from 100% musk ox hair. 

The underwool of the musk ox, also called qiviut, is one of the finest and rarest natural fibres. The fibre comes from Alaska, and the yarn from Canada, more specifically from an Inuit cooperative in Quebec, and it is carefully dyed by hand in Germany.

The underwool of the wild animals is gathered by hand from the ground. Musk ox wool is softer, smoother and more cuddly than the underwool of cashmere goats. The exclusive products made from the undercoat of the musk ox will continue to be a rarity in the future, after all, qiviut isn’t referred to as Arctic gold for nothing.

Alaska 3 is a three-thread spun yarn, which means it is slightly thicker than Alaska 2 and it is made from 100% musk ox hair.

The underwool of the musk ox, also called qiviut, is one of the finest and rarest natural fibres. The fibre comes from Alaska, and the yarn from Canada, more specifically from an Inuit cooperative in Quebec, and it is carefully dyed by hand in Germany.

The underwool of the wild animals is gathered by hand from the ground. Musk ox wool is softer, smoother and more cuddly than the underwool of cashmere goats. The exclusive products made from the undercoat of the musk ox will continue to be a rarity in the future, after all, qiviut isn’t referred to as Arctic gold for nothing.

Muskasch is an exclusive blend of high-quality fibres: the yarn is made of 50% cashmere wool the fine, combed-out hair of the cashmere goat and 50% very rare musk ox undercoat, the downy undercoat of the Arctic musk ox. Our Muskasch yarn is luxurious, stunningly soft and light, but still warming and very cuddly. Musk ox hair is a true rarity, because a fully grown musk ox only yields about 2 to 3 kg of qiviut per year. What is more, the hairs have to be gathered from the ground in a time-consuming process, because the animals are not tame, they live in the wild.

The musk ox hair comes from Alaska, the cashmere wool from Mongolia and the yarn from Canada.

Vicuña is an extremely rare, exclusive and particularly high-quality fine hand knitting yarn, which is made from 100% vicuña wool.

We searched for this yarn for a long time, and we are proud and happy to be one of just a few suppliers in Europe to have this exceptional yarn in our product range. The certified yarn comes from Peru and the it’s rarity and unique characteristics, such as its great wearing comfort, make it the ultimate in luxury.

Vicuña is sold in its natural colour.


SOCK WOOL

Our sock yarns are an excellent and 100% natural alternative to conventional sock yarns. However, they are by no means just used for knitting socks, they are also suitable for all kinds of knitting projects such as sweaters and accessories.

When we developed our Pinta yarn, we initially focused on creating an alternative to conventional sock yarns, which contain polyamides to make them more hard-wearing. Nettles (ramie) and silk fibres guarantee the robustness of the Pinta yarn, while the finest merino fibres provide warmth and softness, ensuring maximum comfort of wearing and knitting. Our Pinta yarn is not only popular for knitting socks, it’s also great for other uses.

This delicate yet robust yarn can be used for anything from socks and ankle warmers through to sweaters.

Our Forest yarn is another sock yarn without any synthetic fibres but here, in contrast to the Pinta yarn, it is bamboo and cotton that ensure robustness and suppleness. Its high merino content gives it the warmth and softness needed for knitting and wearing comfort.

Forest can also be used for many knitting projects other than pretty socks: this delicate yet robust yarn is good for anything from socks and ankle warmers through to sweaters.
