Nigh DK cashmere is so soft, so wonderfully special, you’ll enjoy the knitting as much as your loved ones will enjoy their hats. Everyone who touches Nigh DK can feel how exceptional it is… It’s the very best cashmere we know!

And there’s more to cashmere than its softness. It’s also one of the lightest and warmest fibers you can find, so these hats are nice and toasty but never feel bulky or stifling, just cozy… What an amazing feeling to give to someone you love!
