Recycled cashmere lace yarn in coral
100% cashmere
Lace weight
One skein, no knots, 1260 yards/ 1152 meters

One big skein of pure cashmere yarn in coral, carefully reclaimed by me from a discarded men's sweater. The color is a bold pinkish orange but slightly heathered, which softens the color a little. The yarn is two-ply and lace weight.

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. If you want to help reduce demand, enjoy the luxury of cashmere 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, usually within 48 hours of purchase.

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