Soffio is a yarn spun from cashmere and silk, making it a yarn of exceptional quality. The 90 percent Mongolian cashmere and 10 percent Chinese mulberry silk have been blended to create a yarn that is rich in structure with a delicate sheen. The delicate fibres are spun and dyed with the utmost care in Italy, using a small, natural colour range.
Soffio is a pleasure to knit with and has beautiful stitch definition. The structure of the yarn lends itself perfectly to simple textured stitches and stockinette stitch. A garment knitted in Soffio is cuddly, soft and thick and yet very light. This exceptionally soft yarn is ideal for cardigans and sweaters, as well as accessories like shawls and hat. One ball of Soffio is all you would need to make a hat!
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.

<p>We recommend washing your knitwear by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent. Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to keep its shape. Please do not dry it on a heat source or in the sun! Read more about wool care in our blogpost <a href="https://www.pascuali.de/blog/wool-care">here</a>.</p>
