Clinton Hill Bespoke Cashmere

$ 49.00

The yarnstory:
For years GG watched as Clinton Hill Cashmere became the go-to for Italian, 100% cashmere yarn and modern classic cashmere projects. Their cashmere comes from one of the most prestigious cashmere mills in Italy. Each spring, the herders gently comb each goat, gathering the delicate underfleece. The annual production of each goat is about 3 balls of yarn. Each small batch of sublime fiber is the result of hard work, patience and passion.


Only one problem: Clinton Hill didn’t have orange.


That’s when Shelley started scheming on another of her little surprises… 😉


And “Orange You Glad” cashmere was born! 


The yarn:
Fiber: 100% Italian Cashmere 
Length: 99yds (91m)
Weight: 50g
Gauge Designation: Aran
Needle: US 9 (5.5mm)
Care: Hand wash cold, lay flat to dry.

Note: A portion of every skein purchased from this Hot Loops Wall goes directly back to Gaye “GG” Glasspie as our acknowledgment and thank-you for her help in curating these Hot Loops Wall yarns and patterns.
