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 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!

We offer the yarn in three weights:

Worsted: 100g, 150m +/-  (about 18sts over 4cm on 5mm/US8 needles)
DK: 100g, 185m +/-           (about 20sts over 4cm on 4mm/US6 needles)
Sport: 100g, 250m +/-      (about 22sts over 4cm on 3.5mm/US4 needles)

The yarn comes in four natural, undyed colors: natural white, light gray, light brown, and dark brown.

To purchase some for yourself, please see our Where To Buy page, and contact us if your local yarn shop is not yet on the list!
