Pascuali Cashmere offers one of the best qualities of cashmere on the market today. Like our Cashmere Lace and Cashmere 6/28, Cashmere Worsted is made of 100% Organic cashmere wool which is organic certified by the Mongolian Chamber of Commerce. This high quality Cashmere is made using only the downy undercoat of the cashmere goat.
Pascuali cashmere yarn is spun in one of the best Italian spinneries in the world where the team attends with care to every step and detail in the yarn-making process. Furthermore, this spinnery has a very rigorous quality control system in place whereby the inherent liveliness of the natural fibre is respected.
Once it has been spun, it is dyed also in Italy by a company with outstanding quality control following the strictest European standards (REACH) to guarantee the highest quality yarn.
Our Cashmere Worsted is a premium and exclusive yarn. It is a Medium/Worsted weight and is amazingly thick and cozy.
Cashmere Worsted is a 12 ply yarn and is an absolute pleasure to work with. It has very even stitch definition which is perfect for all kinds of textured patterns as well as stockinette stitch. The wool is wonderfully soft as it is made from the fine, long hairs of the goat's undercoat, and is much less likely to pill than other yarns.
Our luxurious Cashmere Worsted is perfect for thick yet lightweight pullovers and cardigans as well as accessories such as shawls or hats. It is lightweight yet cozy and warm and is so lovely and soft, it can be worn by those with the most sensitive skin.

Tip: It is advisable to always order enough yarn for your desired model to ensure you knit your entire project with yarn of the same dye batch. In case of doubt, please make a gauge sample immediately after receiving the yarn. In this way, you can estimate whether you have ordered sufficient quantity and, if necessary, reorder directly.
We recommend washing your knitwear made of Cashmere by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent. Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to avoid stretching. Under no circumstances should you dry it directly on a heat source or in the blazing sun! Read more about wool care in our blogpost here.
