Soffio's cashmere and silk were spinned specially to produce this very unique yarn. Soffio consists of 90% Mongolian cashmere wool. Together with 10% mulberry silk, the yarn gets a slight and discreet shine and a very good stability. The yarn is manufactured in Italy.
This incomparable soft yarn is best qualified for sweaters, tops and cardigans but also for lovely accessories like shawls, loops and hats. The weight and yardage make sure that you can knit a hat with 50g of Soffio or a sweater (size S/M) with 250g.
We recommend hand wash for your knitted fabrics, lukewarm under 30°C and not in the washing machine. Only use a special detergent for wool. Dry flat on a towel so the knitted fabric would not deform! If you have coat hangers made from foamed plastics you can also hang your knitted fabrics for drying, but please never next to a heat source!
