An exquisite blend of 70% undyed white cashmere and 30% natural-color baby alpaca, Cygnet’s five delicate shades span a range of soft gray-browns, like a little bevy of baby swans! From the downy winter undercoat of goats, cashmere is designed by nature to be lightweight, warm, and ridiculously soft. Cygnet's cashmere is the finest available, and add to that the insulating power of alpaca, and you get a yarn that is wonderfully light but also as toasty as can be! The alpaca we use here comes in naturally occurring shades and is what gives Cygnet its delicate palette of warm and earthy neutrals... Very special! Cygnet knits up at a fingering weight and has six tidy plies, giving it strength and smooth, even stitch definition. Made in Peru, this yarn is also Peru Fair Trade Certified, which means the mill that makes it is committed to fair and safe working conditions, as well as a respect for the environment, with low-impact production techniques, a responsible consumption of resources, and the reuse, recycling, and reduction of raw materials. Cygnet also adheres to European regulations that protect human health and the environment from harmful chemicals... Wonderful! We love the warmth, the softness, and the drape, but most of all, we love the natural beauty!
