cashmere /silk / merino yarns

The 2/28 yarns are spun by Zegna Baruffa, the top Italian mill which spun the cashwool super soft merino yarns we sell... this yarn they branded as Diamante, it is the same extra fine merino but mixed with 20% silk and 10% cashmere for extra shine and classy softness...

other yarn details are individually described

As 2/28NM yarns these give 2,300 yards per cone, 7,000 yards per lb.
We will happily wind multiple strands of these yarns for free... just tell us when you pay..

Some of these yarns 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..

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..
