This soft offering from Shibui invites makers to experiment with quiet colors and straightforward designs that allow craft and fabric to sing. With a micron count of 16.5 (the lower the micron count, the smaller the diameter of the fiber and the softer the yarn), Pure Cashmere feels like it’s about to melt in your hands. Try it held single or double, on its own or in combination with other Shibui yarns.
