Recycled cashmere / cotton blend yarn in light blue
66% cashmere, 34% cotton
Heavy lace or light fingering weight
One skein, no knots, 1000 yards/ 914 meters

One very large skein of recycled cashmere cotton blend yarn in light blue, carefully reclaimed from a discarded men's sweater. It's two 2-ply strands held together, each 2-ply strand made up of a cashmere strand and a cotton strand, twisted together. The cotton is a paler shade of blue, so the yarn is marled, but there isn't a huge amount of contrast between the two shades. The yarn is very, very soft and squishy, really a delight to handle!

Cashmere is light, warm, soft, and surprisingly durable. Handwash in lukewarm water with a wool-safe detergent (or a squirt of shampoo and a dab of conditioner), and dry flat.

Did you know--soaring US demand for cashmere has devastated parts of China's landscape? Overgrazing by cashmere-producing goats has led to the "desertification" of formerly rich grasslands. Furthermore, conventional cotton production is one of the heaviest users of toxic pesticides! Enjoy this luxury blend in a more eco-friendly (and wallet-friendly) way, by buying recycled yarn instead of new.

*************************************************

I select gently worn sweaters made of quality natural fibers, unravel them, skein the yarn, wash it in a natural unscented wool wash, and hang it to dry.

Would you like your yarn wound into a center-pull ball? Just let me know in the "notes to seller" box when you place your order, and I will happily wind your yarn for you free of charge.

I ship quickly--within 48 hours of purchase.

Please examine all photos closely before purchasing, and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
