I had completely sold out of this yarn, but one of my stockists has not been able to open for a year and informed me that she has some stock! Please note that this is the very last of this yarn. I may re-stock hand dyed at some point in the future.

Description

Pure cashmere aran weight yarn

‘Altopiano’ (meaning ‘highland’ in Italian) is a gorgeously soft pure cashmere aran yarn spun exclusively for us in Italy.  It knits on anything from a 5mm to 7mm and is perfect for creating luxurious winter accessories. This yarn is made from the highest quality cashmere available. It has minimal pilling, and literally gets softer and softer with wear. It’s no surprise that customers keep coming back for this yarn again and again.  You can read more about how our cashmere is made here. We have several patterns written for this yarn. It is also available hand dyed

Altopiano comes in a choice of 8 timeless colours.

    Dear Abby,
    The scarf turned out beautifully. The yarn was unbelievably luxurious and I will certainly come back for more when next doing something a bit special. Here is how it progressed and turned out. Thank you so much for all your help. In terms of colour match, the pictures in the middle left and right have the best natural light and show them most naturally. Thank you. Dianne

    I was really impressed with the quality of this yarn. I made a toddlers item that knitted up so soft and cozy I wanted it! It has great stitch definition and could be worked on a range of needles to get different feels to the fabric. I used a mix of colours and loved how well they work together.

    I’ve knitted the ‘justified shawl’ from Elizabeth Felgate in lovely dark grey. What a very soft almost buttery yarn to knit with. It knitted nice up and it was a very great experience to knit with real cashmere yarn. I would have given it 5* but it is very expensive.

  27. Elizabeth

    I am using this yarn to make the “Justified” shawl. I am absolutely loving working with this yarn. It really is a joy!

  28. Alison

    Although this Cashmere yarn is quite expensive, it definitely is a “you get what you pay for” as it is THE best. I knitted your pattern (‘Twisted Stitcher’ Cowl Pattern) which needs 2 balls and am extremely happy with the way it turned out. It is so comfy and warm and the Cobalt colour goes extremely well with denim.

  29. Tilla

    Thank you for this lovely wool. I have just finished making my scarf and I do not want to give it away! It is so soft and pretty and the pattern I used really bring out the colour. I love it. I will be back soon.

  30. Yan

    This yarn is lovely to knit with and my hat is very soft. It is quite expensive so I was a bit nervous about it, but it is really worth it. I can’t knit with it too often but when I have to make something special I will come back and buy more.

  31. Sophie

    I started out by making a grey scarf for my boyfriend and I fell in love with this yarn. It is so soft and quick to knit that I couldn’t wait to finish the scarf and make something for myself. I have just finished my jumper and I love it. The colours are so rich and it is so warm and soft that I can’t wait to use it again… Thank you
