Our Cashmere 6/28 is a very high quality and exclusive yarn made of pure organic cashmere wool. The Fine/Sport yarn weight makes it the perfect choice for a wide range of projects.
Like our Cashmere Worsted and Cashmere Lace, Cashmere 6/28 is made of pure cashmere wool. For our cashmere qualities, only the downy undercoat of the cashmere goat is used. The fibre comes from goats in Inner Mongolia, the yarn is produced in Italy. There the fine cashmere fibres are processed to perfection in order to meet the high quality of the fibres. The yarn is also dyed in Italy.
Cashmere 6/28 is a 6-ply yarn. It is pleasant to work with and has a very even stitch definition. Perfect for all types of textured patterns, but it also looks very elegant when knitted in stockinette stitch. The wool has a soft fluff. Since it consists of the finest, particularly long hair, it still has a much lower tendency to lint or pill than other yarns.
The fine, noble and incomparable Cashmere 6/28 is equally suitable for light yet warm pullovers and cardigans as well as for accessories such as shawls or hats. It is cosy, warm, super lightweight and soft to the skin. It is well tolerated on the skin even by the most sensitive people.

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.
