Atlantis is one of the finest yarns in the Pascuali range. It consists of 70 percent cashmere and 30 percent mulberry silk. While cashmere wool ensures the softness and warmth of the yarn, silk is responsible for the delicate sheen. Together they result in a shiny, smooth yet incredibly soft yarn. The thread is very fine and yet stable.
The fine hair from the undercoat of the cashmere goat for Atlantis comes from Inner Mongolia, the mulberry silk from China. The yarn is spun in Italy, where it is also dyed afterwards.
Atlantis is a yarn for very delicate needlework. It knits up very beautifully and has a wonderful stitch definition. Atlantis is suitable for many types of textured patterns, but it also looks very noble when knitted in simple stockinette stitch. Atlantis is particularly suitable for fine, light and yet warming knitwear. Of course you can also crochet with it very well! The extremely fine cashmere hair and the delicate silk make Atlantis a yarn that is well tolerated even by very sensitive people and children, also in direct skin contact.
Atlantis is very well suited for light tops, but also accessories such as fine scarves and shawls are very impressive with this luxury yarn.

<p>We recommend washing your knitwear from cashmere wool by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent. Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to keep its shape.<br />Please do not dry it on a heat source or in the sun!
