June Cashmere DK
Brand June Cashmere
June Cashmere is an extraordinary yarn with an extraordinary story. Raw fiber sourced from independent herders in Kyrgyzstan is spun in Scotland and dyed in Maine – with a transparent production process that is internationalism at its finest: supporting small businesses and individuals. To read more about the June Cashmere Story check out our blog post.
The DK weight yarn features six plies loosely twisted together, which gives it a relative crispness unusual in a cashmere yarn. This crispness, as well as a more moderate bloom when blocking, make June Cashmere a 100% cashmere yarn suitable for gender-neutral projects. Patterns we would love to see knit up in June Cashmere DK: Andrea Mowry's Drift Hat or Shibui Knits' Spire Hat. For lighter weight projects, try June Cashmere Lace. We can’t get enough of this yarn – and look forward to watching it develop.
