This listing is for one skein of 100% cashmere yarn that has been reclaimed from a sweater that was purchased at a local and charitable thrift store. At about 14 wraps per inch this is considered a fingering weight yarn. There are three plies but they aren’t tightly twisted making it a fluffy and airy yarn. I knit some up and it hasn’t been too splitty to work with but it’s more splitty than a yarn that has a lot more twist. This yarn is very very soft and makes great scarves and shawls or could make some very luxurious socks and gloves.

Disclaimers!
I have tried to accurately represent the color in the pictures but all monitors vary so if you have any questions about the colors, let me know.

The yarn in the pictures might not be the actual skein of yarn you receive but it will be from the same sweater and it will look the same (same color, texture, thickness, etc.)

There are no smokers or animals in my home but this yarn did come from used sweaters.

All yarn is gently washed and hung to dry after it has been unraveled from the sweaters.

I try my best to account for all knots or inconsistencies in the yarn and note them in the listing and on the tags but if I missed something I apologize.

I try to measure the weight and yardage of the yarn as accurately as I can but please keep in mind that these numbers aren’t precise. The yarn is weighed after it has been washed and dries completely.
