Cashmere/silk, cashmere/silk/merino and cash/silk/cotton cobweb and fine lace weights

The 55%/45% yarns are Italian spun for Todd & Duncan of Scotland, and were sold by them under the brand name Sensation and used in some of the world?s most luxurious knitwear. Made from the best cashmere and silk fibres they are still soft but give better stitch definition and feel sleeker but also a bit crisper than the pure cashmere - and of course the silk gives extra brightness to the colours...

The details of the cash/silk/cottons are on the individual listings


Cashmere/silk, cash/silk/merino and cash/silk/cotton cobweb and fine lace weights

As 2/36NM yarns these are a little finer than our pure silk laceweights but will bloom a bit more. They give 3,000 yards per cone, 9,000 yards per lb, and should give around 40 stitches on a 4 inch swatch. Please add your experiences with these yarns (especially with pictures!) below. You can find articles about knitting and washing these yarns in our Knowledge Base section..

Note that we will happily wind multiple plies together on cone, for NO EXTRA CHARGE, just tell us how many plies when you pay.
