Our Tibetan cashmere is obtained from the spring combing of Tibetan cashmere goats, raised by some of the families who belong to our cooperatives and who live in the mountains’ most extreme and poorest areas. We are working on a new collection for fall which means we need to let go of the reaming stock of the existing collections: Pop Colors – few bright colors created as a tribute to the rebel spirit of the Tibetans and the Natural Dyes – a limited edition run dyed with all natural pigments from Madder Root, Cochineal, Logwood, Indaco*, Weld and Osage Orange. The colors in this collection will vary has they have been hand dyed in small batches. Some of these color might stain your hands while you knit, but will wash you off easily. We advise that you use a color catcher or some vinegar when you soak your finished garment.
Our Tibetan Cashmere is a fiber over 36 mm long and with a gauge below 14.5 microns, characteristics that make it a yarn of absolute excellence. The yarn is spun with the perfect balance of ease to allow the yarn to bloom while still securing the fibers.
During sale times we can not guarantee matching lot numbers.
*Indaco. These skeins are our seconds. Same quality Cashmere but the indaco dye has made them feel more cottony and stiff at the touch. Once washed and block they will bloom very nicely.
