2/20NM heavy lace weight

These yarns are spun from the best Mongolian cashmere fibres by Johnstons of Elgin, one of the top cashmere mills in Scotland and the world. The DK weight yarns we sell from Johnstons are some of our softest and fluffiest, but these 2/20Nm yarns are more tightly spun and so seem less fluffy, though they are still soft enough and get softer with washing and with wear. As balanced 2ply yarns they are excellent for knitting too, but they also have very good weaving properties and fascinating color mixes... and the tighter spinning makes them tougher than you might expect..


2/20NM heavy lace weight

As 2/20NM yarns these give 1,650 yards per cone, 5,000 yards per lb, and should give around 30-34 stitches on a 4 inch swatch, using US 4-6, 2.75-3.75 mm needles. Please add your experiences with these yarns (especially with pictures!) below. You can find articles about knitting and washing these yarns in our Knowledge Base section..

... as with all our yarns, we will wind multiple strands of these yarns onto cone for no extra charge, just put a note on your payment...
