About the yarn
Cashmere sock is a plump soft fingering weight yarn. The cashmere gives it a little extra softness over merino nylon yarns. The nylon gives it strength to make it a luxury sock yarn.

Skein weight: 100g
Yarn weight: Fingering
Our Banshee Yarns Mohair Lace base is a far cry from the mohair of the eighties. This super soft luxury mohair silk yarn is gorgeous to knit with on its own or to hold double with other yarns to create really special cosy projects.
