Weight: 50 gram cone
Length: about 500 meters
We recommend a sett of 12 ends per inch (12.5 DPI in Rigid heddle) for weaving this yarn and aim for getting about 12-13 picks per inch while weaving. Kind of open weave which will allow the yarn to 'bloom' after washing. After weaving, wash 3 times longer than wools to bring out the softness of the fabric which was once adorning the shoulders of only the Kings & Queens!
Attention knitters & Crocheters! We tried crocheting with these cashmere yarns. They work brilliantly! Recommended crochet hook size: 3.5 - 4mm. Knitting needle: 3-3.5mm. Though the yarn is thinner for this needle size, it is important to knit /crochet this yarn 'open' so there is enough space for the yarn to 'bloom' after washing which will bring out the beautiful fuzziness & softness so characteristic of cashmere! Pl make sample swatches with different needles sizes/ stitch lengths, wash with shampoo & dry before proceeding with your project.
