We at From The Mountain are proud to bring you 100% cashmere hand spun yarn, straight from women spinning for us in Afghanistan. Spinning cashmere provides these women with a fair wage and an alternative to growing poppies for opium production.
Our cashmere is deliciously soft, with a hand you have to feel to believe, and it blooms beautifully. Knitters have described our cashmere as "absolutely luscious," "silky as butter," and "incredibly soft." But don't take their word for it - try it out! Shops that carry this loveliness can be found here.
