Regia Premium Cashmere
Do you know anything more pleasant, when you are outside in the cold, than keeping your feet toasty warm in a soft pair of handmade socks? Thanks to Schachenmayr Regia’s Premium Cashmere, you will be able to enjoy this little pleasure every day!
We will not sing (once more) the praises of cashmere, this softest than soft and warmer that warm fiber. Being huge cashmere lovers, we tend to see only its qualities. But if we have to be purely factual, we must admit it can be a bit delicate. So, knitting socks with cashmere? We think about it twice!
But when Schachenmayr Regia, one of the most well-known brand of sock yarn, added some cashmere to its range, we had to get it! Indeed, by blending just the good amount of this magical fiber to their well-proven recipe, the brand offers “the little extra” that will make hand-knitted socks one of your essentials. Actually, using this yarn, you will have socks that are so soft and so warm, yet resistant, that your feet will not want you to wear anything else 😉
