2/28NM, 4/46NM and 2/36NM lace weights

We have now moved many of our yarns from this site to our beta development site at www.colourmart2.com (you have to register again for that site, sorry)..

These yarns are spun by Todd & Duncan of Scotland, one of the top cashmere mills in the world. Made from the best Mongolian cashmere fibres they are beautifully soft with the T&D trademark - vibrant colours... Note that a few of these yarns are spun and dyed by Hinchcliffes of Yorkshire, Loro Piana of Italy or another Italian mill rather than Todd & Duncan, if they are it says so on the listing.

The 2/36NM yarns form Todd & Duncan, ocassionally Loro Piana, and are between a lace weight and a cobweb weight... The Todd & Duncan ones are marketed as Eminence brand

The 4/46NM yarns are Italian spun, created from two strands of soft vivid cobweb cashmere...


2/28NM, 4/46NM and 2/36NM lace weights

As 2/28NM yarns these give about 2,270 yards per cone, 6,800 yards per lb, and should give around 32-36 stitches on a 4 inch swatch, using US 2-5, 2.5-3.75 mm needles. 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..


- we will wind multiple plies of these yarns onto cone for no extra charge, just let us know how many plies when you pay...

- some of these yarns came in on smaller cones, so by the time we get to the last few 150g cones for sale, we might actually send 2 or even 3 (never more) smaller cones instead of one 150g one. You usually get more yarn that way, but if that would be a problem for you please let us know...

- the size of the cones in the pictures may vary, the amount for sale is always 150g...

I'm glad sharing my swatches is helpful to you! You noticed that I knit eyelets into each swatch that correlate with the US needle size used. It's a slick trick I picked up from watching Lily Chin...
