From the manufacturer: Loft yarns are some of our most amazing :-) 100% pure cashmere, spun by Todd & Duncan, they have 4 strands of 1/17NM singles yarn but one strand is spun very soft and deliberately with slubs. This gives a fascinating texture, ideal for really special garments, gorgeously soft… the colors are not too bad either…

As 4/17 NM yarns these are about half way between what we call a fingering and what we call a dk weight yarn… giving 700 yards per cone and 2,100 yards per lb. That should mean about 22-26 stitches on a 4 inch swatch… 4 of the colors are actually two ply yarns, 2/7.5 NM, closer to DK weight.
