cash/silk dk and fingering weights

The 55%/45% yarns are mill twisted for us from 12 strands of the Italian spun cobweb weights, the 65%/35% yarns from 5 strands of the french spun 3/45 lace weights. Made from the best cashmere and silk fibres they are still soft but give better stitch definition and feel sleeker but also a bit crisper than the pure cashmere - and of course the silk gives extra brightness to the colours... the 65%/35% yarns have a superb lustre and feel.. the fingering weight yarns are individually described..

As 12/36NM or 15/45NM yarns these give 500 yards per cone, 1,500 yards per lb, and should give around 20 stitches on a 4 inch swatch. 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..
