Jade Sapphire Cashmere Yarn

Jade Sapphire hand-dyed cashmere is here!

This yarn is the absolute softest thing we've ever touched. Jade Sapphire is a 100% Mongolian cashmere yarn--known for it's long staple length and extremely soft fiber, Mongolian cashmere is top notch!

Did you know that one cashmere goat only produces about 150 grams of cashmere a year? That is just 3 skeins of this luscious yarn! During the spring the cashmere goats moult, and their warm, downy undercoat is combed out by hand. It is then cleaned and any coarse hairs are removed, leaving this lofty, lightweight and super insulating fiber. It's pretty special!

We love this free cashmere cowl pattern. It's the same cowl that Amber fell in love with at TNNA and is a simple slip stitch colorwork pattern. Just ask us and we'll give you a free copy when you purchase a skein or two of Jade Sapphire.
