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
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.
Really like this roving for my wool allergic family members.
I spin on a drop spindle and am in love with this fiber! It draws out of the roving easily, and doesn't break once spun even though I'm spinning it pretty thin. It's very soft and the yarn is turning out smooth and even.
I love this faux cashmere roving. I blend it with wool on my drum carder and end result is wonderful. My first purchase of it was only 4 oz. When I went to buy more, Paradise Fibers AND The Woolery were both out of all brands of faux Cashmere. I was thrilled to find out this shipment was coming in and when it did I bought a pound of it.
This has a really nice staple length for spinning and goes through a drum carder beautifully. I am using it to blend with Targhee fleece that I have processed to add strength to the wool for sock yarns. It is so so very soft.
