Cashmere/cotton lace weights

The 2/28 50/50 cash/cottons are spanish spun, with a lovely crisp softness.. The 2/31 yarns are spun by Todd & Duncan of Scotland and were marketed under their Adventure brand. Made from the best cashmere and long staple cotton fibres they are still very soft but give better stitch definition and feel crisper than the pure cashmere - ideal for lighter weight garments or baby items...

note we sometimes have a couple of italian spun cash/cotton lace weights in this section, and some T&D yarns with a higher cashmere proportion.. AND a few Hinchliffe yarns that are a fraction thicker (2/31NM).


Cashmere/cotton  lace weights

The 2/28NM yarns are our standard lace weight yardage, 2,300 yards per 150g cone... The 2/33NM yarns these give 2,700 yards per cone, 8,100 yards per lb, and should give around 32-36 stitches on a 4 inch swatch, using US 2-5, 2.5-3.75 mm needles. The 2/31NM yarns will give 2,500 yards per cone and 7,500 ypp. 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..

Note that we will happily wind multiple plies together on cone, just tell us how many when you pay.

Some of these yarns (not the 2/28) came in on lots of small cones, so you might get an order of 150g on more than one cone, if that is a problem please let us know..

Old Shetland patterns - the soltire with cat's paws. The cotton gives a certain crispness to the yarn, resulting in a very well defined scarf.

Needles were 3.25 mm, and the weight v...
