This yarn is best used on a standard gauge 4.5mm or 5mm knitting machine. We have had beautiful results using less weight than with other yarns (to avoid any breakage). 250-300 grams is sufficient for a women's medium long-sleeved, pullover with crew neck.
This cashmere carries the OEKOTEX Standard 100 certification.
Finishing recommendation: After you knit your piece, wash it twice in lukewarm water using a non-ionic detergent (we recommend The Laundress Wool and Cashmere Shampoo) to remove all spinning oil from the yarn. Rinse your piece with water between each wash. If you're making something relatively small, you can wash in a clean sink or vase and agitate with a plastic cooking spoon. Next, agitate and soak your knitted piece with a squirt of a high-quality liquid fabric softener (we recommend The Laundress Fabric Conditioner). Rinse, then squeeze to remove excess water. Tumble dry on medium heat until dry (you only want to dry in the machine during the finishing process, otherwise you cause too much stress on the yarn). It is helpful to dry a single knitted piece with a couple of other medium sized, non-textured garments (such as sweatshirts) so that the heat is well distributed and dry time is shortened. Be careful not to keep knitted garment in dryer much past the point that it is dry to avoid excess shrinkage). Lastly, pop your gorgeous new cashmere knit out of the dryer! No blocking needed if it measures to your specs. Otherwise, block and lightly steam to your desired measurements.
