BC Garn - Summer in Kashmir
New to Loop! We love this gorgeous cashmere cotton blend. Perfect for baby garments and all year round knitwear. In 26 gorgeous colours!
The name of this yarn says it all: Kashmir is a region in the Himalayan Mountains on 1700m altitude. The climate in summer is mild, sometimes even chilly. So our Summer in Kashmir offers all the properties needed in these regions. It is a wonderfully soft cotton refined with 10% of cashmere. The combination of these two materials makes this GOTS certified organic yarn a popular partner for all year round, for various climate zones, for inside and outside, for young and old. The small percentage of cashmere gives the yarn a delicate softness, which can be seen when you hold the yarn against light, but the yarn is not "fluffy-hairy", so it is also very suitable for baby clothes.
The cotton is grown on GOTS certified farms in Turkey, the Cashmere is from Mongolia. The yarn is spun and dyed in Turkey.
GOTS certification requires that all stages of the production are ecologically, environmentally, and ethically sustainable from start to finish.Fiber Content:
