Smooth and soft, this orange-y pink angora/cashmere blend would be a pleasure to wear on any part of the body. The total yarn recycled from this sweater was 295.1 grams, amounting to approximately 904 yards. If you would like to purchase all of the listings for this sweater, message me and I will give you a code for 10% off the purchase.

This yarn was unraveled by hand from a high-quality, gently-used sweater. It was then soaked in hot water and left to cool, allowing the fibers to unkink while retaining their lovely elasticity and loft. Finally, the yarn was hung to dry unweighted, then skeined and tagged for your knitting or crocheting pleasure. All of this was done in a non-smoking house where two lovely cats live.

Please remember:
Using recycled yarn is a wonderful way to craft while being kind to the earth and your pocketbook at the same time. However, sometimes the recovery process for these yarns results in occasional imperfections or knots in the skeins. While I carefully check the yarn to ensure that this does not occur, I may sometimes miss a knot.
Also, while I do my best to make sure these pictures are true to color, shades will vary depending your computer’s settings.
