Blue Sky Fibers Eco Cashmere
Isn't it great when you find something that tastes amazing and is also good for you? This is how we feel about this yarn from Blue Sky Fibers. First of all it is spun from 100% cashmere. Cashmere comes from the downy undercoat of the cashmere or pashmina goat. It is coveted for it's super power which is softness - it is SUPER-SOFT! It is also very light, and warm, so a little cashmere goes a long way to keep you cozy.
Secondly this yarn is made from 50% recycled cashmere fibres. That means half of the contents comes from off-cuts from clothing production that is re-spun with newly gathered fibres to make a glorious 100% cashmere yarn. This does not reduce the quality of this yarn in the least. It is still incredibly soft and irresistibly squishy.
Cashmere is a great fibre for almost any knitted or crocheted garment that you want to keep you warm. It is especially good for those with sensitive skin. Blue Sky Fibers have developed some patterns for their Eco Cashmere which you can find HERE or look for a pattern that requires a double-knit weight yarn.
