Pascuali's Sole is a wonderful mixture of fine Pima cotton and fine cashmere, making it an unusual combination of plant and animal fibers not normally found in cotton yarn. The 90 percent Pima Cotton mixed with 10 percent Mongolian Cashmere makes Sole beautifully soft. It is a 6 ply yarn with a triple twist, which makes it strong and yet delicate and shiny. Sole is sustanably spun and dyed for Pascuali in Portugal according to their fair trade commitment.
Sole is lovely to work with and has beautiful stitch definition. It works equally well for both textured knitting and plain stockinette stitch, and is also perfect for crocheting.
Sole is an ideal all year round yarn. Perfect for light summer tops as well as warm cardigans and pullovers. It is also an excellent choice for accessories like scarves, shawls and hats. As it is so soft, it is a good alternative for those who find pure wool too scratchy against their sensitive skin.
