From the manufacturer: These yarns are mill twisted and steam set for us (to give a balanced yarn), starting from assorted high quality 100% cashmere singles yarns, mostly from Johnstons or other top UK spinners. Many of the singles were meant for weaving so have a higher twist level, and therefore in general even after washing they give a slightly tougher yarn than the very soft and fluffy 2/7NM, but last well in wear (which will give additional softness and bloom) and give crisper stitch definition… there are additional notes on some of the individual items, for example where double twisting gives a softer feel.

The singles for this yarn were twisted 2 ply then the results 3 plyed again, this opens out the yarns and gives a softer and more textured feel.
