Altopiano HD is hand dyed pure cashmere aran weight yarn, in a variety of colourways.
I appreciate that hand-dyed pure cashmere yarn is not an every day product – it is expensive. However, compared with the others on the market, ours is exceptional value, whilst still being amazing quality. Our customers are testament to that as they come back again and again. The yarns are dyed in small batches, but if you require larger quantities please let me know. This yarn is also available in solid colours at Luxury Yarns and in fact some of the colours work really well combined with solid colours.
A couple of things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. I recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row for consistency on larger projects.
- Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal – think jeans…) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate.
