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

Spinning this yarn provides Afghan women a fair wage that helps them support their families and a peaceful alternative to the drug trade. 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 all white.

The lovely Snow on the Windows Cowl, the Sailor Scarf, the Abacus Cowl, and the absolutely stunning Frost Flowers Capelet were all designed for this yarn.
