As soft and pure and beautiful as we can imagine, Cashmere Tend is not only very special, it is also Purl Soho’s very first 100% cashmere collection! Cashmere Tend is a classic worsted weight, which makes it just right for totally toasty accessories and cold-weather sweaters. Choose from 18 lovely colors, all designed to pay homage to the lore and tradition of cashmere yarn while indulging in our love for nature and its complex shades. The cashmere fiber itself comes from hundreds of small farms in the mountainous plateaus of Inner Mongolia and northeastern China. It is traceable from the pasturing region but not from individual farms. For us, such specificity proved hard to find in that remote and rural region, but we can say that from the sorting facility through the spinning and dying processes, our cashmere is closely traced to ensure its very fine quality. Profoundly beautiful and incredibly soft, we can't think of a more special yarn... Enjoy its pleasures!
Note: We're working hard to bring back Cashmere Tend. Please stay tuned!
