Lusciously soft handspun cashmere yarn from Afghanistan, with a bit more yardage than our worsted weight.

The hand-knitting cashmere yarn industry provides Afghan women a fair wage that helps them support their families and provides peaceful alternatives to an opium economy. Our yarn comes in beautiful natural, undyed colors with a hand you have to feel to believe.

Our yarn is available in natural white, gray, light brown, and dark brown. These are undyed colors, echoing the goat herds of Afghanistan which have not yet been bred to white.

The Sailor Scarf, the Abacus Cowl, and Gunilla’s Cashmere Cap were all made just for this yarn!

We sell this yarn to shops as a DK; however the stitches per inch qualify it as a worsted under the Ravelry standard and so it is listed as such here.
