We at From The Mountain are proud to bring you 100% cashmere handspun yarn, straight from women spinning for us in Afghanistan.
Our yarn is deliciously soft, with a hand you have to feel to believe, and it blooms beautifully.
What began as a USAID project has evolved into a business that provides women in Afghanistan with a fair wage and adds value all along the cashmere supply chain, strengthening the Afghan economy and providing alternatives to opium production.
We carry the yarn in three weights:
Worsted: 100g, 150m +/-
DK: 100g, 185m +/-
Sport: 100g, 250m +/-
The yarn comes in four natural, undyed colors, echoing the goats in Afghanistan: natural white, light gray, light brown, and dark brown.
