The yarn keeps what the name promises: The Kashmir region is located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 1700m. It is therefore pleasantly mild in summer, sometimes even downright cool.
Summer in Kashmir is the perfect mix: wonderfully soft cotton refined with 10% cashmere, of course GOTS certified.
A yarn suitable for all year round and for indoors and outdoors. The amount of cashmere gives the yarn a delicate fluff that you can see when you hold the yarn up to the light, but the yarn is not "fluffy-hairy" overall, so it is also very suitable for baby clothes - especially since it is yes is machine washable.
The cotton used comes from GOTS certified cotton fields in Turkey and is also spun and dyed here. The Kashmir comes from Mongolia.
