This listing is for one skein of Paprika 55% cashmere 45% cotton recycled yarn. This color makes me think of Hungarian Paprika, a rich rusty red. The yarn is a marled two ply yarn with what appears to my eye to be one ply of cashmere and one of cotton. This yarn has the softness and loft of the cashmere mixed with cotton. This is a fingering weight yarn. Remember that you can work with more than one strand to "make" a thicker yarn. When doubled this yarn has a WPI of 12 making it a worsted weight yarn.This is how many of the thicker sweaters are knit commercially. It would make a great yarn for any next to skin item. This yarn was recycled from a gently used J. Crew sweater, carefully taken apart, wound into skeins and gently washed, then hung unweighted to dry. The photo of the group of skeins shows all of the skeins from this sweater. Each skein is listed separately.

My home is smoke free, but cat friendly.
All monitors vary, so the color of this yarn may vary slightly in your monitor.

55% cashmere 45% cotton
WPI 17 (wraps per inch) or fingering weight

Skein #5
I did find two knots this skein, one of them a manufacturing knot in one of the two plies. I do my best, but it is possible for me to miss a knot.
74 grams or 2.6 ounces
Estimated total Yardage 471 yards

I am happy to wind this skein into a center pull balls as a free service. PLEASE indicate whether you prefer balls or skeins during checkout. Wool yarn is best stored in skeins without tension. If using immediately, working from a center-pull ball is easiest.
