Knit with attitude is incredible proud to be able to bring the From The Mountain 100% cashmere yarn to our customers.
The yarn is hand spun in Afghanistan by women being paid fairly for their work. Spinning cashmere provides these women with a fair wage and an alternative to opium production.
From The Mountain specialises in bringing the skills and products of artisans worldwide to new markets. They work to sustain handcraft traditions that have evolved in harmony with local ecosystems and that are culturally significant.
From The Mountain cashmere is deliciously soft, with a hand you have to feel to believe, and it blooms beautifully. Knitters have described this cashmere as "absolutely luscious", "silky as butter" and "incredibly soft". But don't take their word for it - try it out!
The yarn comes in a classic sport weight in four natural, untreated and undyed colours: natural white, light gray, light brown, and dark brown.
