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!

We offer the yarn in four weights:

Aran:  100g, 100m +/-       (about 14 sts over 10cm on 6mm/US 10 needles)
Worsted: 100g, 150m +/-  (about 18 sts over 10 cm on 5mm/US 8 needles)
DK: 100g, 185m +/-           (about 20 sts over 10 cm on 4mm/US 6 needles)
Sport: 100g, 250m +/-      (about 22 sts over 10 cm on 3.5mm/US 4 needles)

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