Pascuali – Organic Cashmere
Softness alert! If, like the absolute fans that we are, you cannot resist to cashmere yarn, here is a gem for you. Indeed, Pascuali’s Organic Cashmere is not only organic certified, but it also has the softest price!
Finding high quality cashmere at this price is a treat that we had to share with you. Indeed, the fiber used by Pascuali to produce its yarn is certified organic*. But it is also made with the best part of the product, as Pascuali only takes the longest fibers of the downy coat of the goats. This way, the brand can not only guarantee the softness of its yarn, but also its durability and sturdiness. In fact, the longer the fibers, the less susceptible to pilling will be the yarn.
Plus, the certification given by the Mongolian Chamber of Commerce does not only guarantee the quality of the product. It also takes into account the animal welfare, by assuring that the goats live entirely free, cared for by nomadic herders, and also monitors the way the fibers are collected and treated. But it also protects the herders themselves, by ensuring them of a fair compensation.

With its beautiful stitch definition and its wonderful drape, this yarn is just perfect to knit shawls. But you will also like it for any other projects, from the simplest to the most complicated.
