Cashmere is famously luxurious because of the effort that goes into the manufacturing of the material; the wool is combed from the underbelly of the Capra Hircus goat, sometimes referred to as the Cashmere Goat. This particular breed of goat is only found at extremely high altitude, famously in the Himalayas. Cashmere is luxuriously soft, with high napability and loft. Suitable to be blended with wool to create a heavenly blend with added loft and softness.
The downside to true Cashmere fiber is that for some it is too expensive, thanks to man-made technologies now people can experience the joy of cashmere at a fraction of the price! This Faux Cashmere Roving has many of the qualities of true cashmere such as the way it feels and its handle. The process of stretching the nylon fibers extremely thin creates a down-like fiber that is remarkable. The resulting product feels just like cashmere and is just as soft. This fiber dyes beautifully and is a TRUE white. Words can not express the feel of this fiber! Try it out for yourself and include it in your next spinning or blending project!
This fiber has a long staple length of 4-6 inches
I read the first part of the fiber thinking it was a great deal in cashmere. When arrived, I was not happy. HOWEVER, I have spun the most beautiful two ply from it! I am a weaver and knit. This is really a good yarn. Not only is it soft and light weight but it is very strong. It would make beautiful baby blankets, knit socks but am thinking of weaving a shawl, or even a new bathrobe from it using a synthetic warp. It has so many potentials for weaving. I have never seen a commercial yarn like it. I will buy more of it.
This is so soft!! It takes dye beautifully and adds a nice sheen and fluffiness when blended with wool. Get this, you won't be disappointed.
I wasn't sure I was ready to expand my sounding experience but this was easy to spin. It plied easily. So glad I tried something new
This gives is so fluffy and smooth and a dream to work with. It is as white as snow and when dyed the colors are so vibrant. I've tried spinning it on its own and the yarn is super soft but holds up longer blended with wool. Love this fiber and will continue to come back for more.
