Makalu SILKY CASHMERE Hand Paints, made in China, hand painted in Canada


Silky Cashmere Hand Paints is a precious blend of two natural exotic fibers in aran weight. It is a perfect and rare combination of exceptional softness, silky appearance, and depth of colours. Because the percentage of both fibers in this yarn is almost the same, the finished fabric does not have such problems as pilling or lack of elasticity. Silky Cashmere is easy to care for, though it is extremely precious. It is hand painted in Canada. We would recommend the use of any woolwash No Rinse only. Note that there may be slight flaws in the colour at the first wash, this is natural for commercial dyes on natural fibers.

TENSION: 16 sts / 22 rows
