100% cashmere yarn and cashmere yarn blends
The cashmere yarn is spun from the so-called undercoat of the cashmere goat. This undercoat is already wonderfully fluffy soft and completely pure. The best cashmere fibre has a large proportion of this fluff and very little outer hair. The fine and noble cashmere yarns can be spun from this cashmere fluff. These yarns are noble because they are extremely fine with a diameter of less than 12 to 19 microns and do not scratch. Sheep wool, for example, has twice the diameter of a cashmere fibre. Approximately 200 grams of cashmere fibre can be obtained per year from one goat. In spring, cashmere goats have their natural change of coat, the wool is then cut and shorn. Later, the valuable fluff is mechanically separated from the upper hair and all impurities. In a further step, the wool is washed and spun until it can be further processed. The white varieties are suitable for dyeing cashmere wool. The yarn is perfect for weaving and knitting, but can also be used for crocheting.
