Afghan Cashmere Worsted Weight by From the Mountain
Fayzabad Twist 100% Cashmere Handspun Yarn comes in four beautiful natural, undyed colors.
The unbleached, undyed colors reflect the natural genetic diversity of cashmere goat herds, which have not yet been bred to white, as well as being a more environmentally friendly alternative to dyed yarn.
This 100% Cashmere yarn is fairly traded with women in Afghanistan who would otherwise be growing poppies for opium in order to support their families. It's deliciously soft, with a hand you must feel to believe.
