Cashino Aran

(5 customer reviews)

A merino and cashmere blend with nylon for extra strength, so soft it would be perfect for cowls and scarves alike.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Description

The latest in my collection of yarns is Cashino hand dyed aran yarn – an ultra soft blend of extra fine merino and cashmere that also comes in a 4ply. There are currently 5 shades in small batches (300g) but I will be adding to the collection and if you require larger quantities I can dye them for to order, please just let me know.

Thinking up names for all of my colourways never seems to do them justice, so all colours are named after tracks from my favourite band of all time… Pink Floyd.  Because of the nature of hand-dyed yarn – no two skeins are ever the same, and even skeins in the same batch can look markedly different. If colour consistency is important then we suggest working with 2 skeins at once and working 2 rows of each.

Due to the process of hand-dyeing yarn, some residual dye may remain. This is perfectly normal and mostly effects blues and red dyes due to their manufacturing process. We do however suggest washing all garments before they are worn to prevent colour transference. In the case of particularly bright colours, soaking the finished item in a salt and vinegar solution will help fix colours prior to washing. For more information you can see our blog post.

    My aunt bought 4 skeins of your Cashino Aran in the Let There Be More Light colour for me at a show in London, and it’s fabulous, so soft and squishy, wonderful bright colours. Cast on the Felix Pullover as soon as she gave it to me. Wasn’t sure how it would knit up, but I am not disappointed! It’s glorious 😁
    You’re yarn is amazing!

    I haven’t started knitting with it yet, but it’s all caked up and ready to go. All feels gorgeous, and the colours are true to website images.
