Gōkana - Silk-Blend Yarn (80% Bombyx Silk & 20% Cashmere), 30/2, lace/thread weight
The high Himalayan Mountains of Asia are the origin of the Cashmere goat. It is the fine undercoat ranging in colour from deep brown, grey and white we prize for its feel. The costly dehairing process is necessary to separate the guard hairs from the undercoat before spinning.
Cashmere is luxuriously soft, fine and lofty providing lightweight warmth. The addition of silk makes cashmere more affordable and durable as well as adding luster. Cashmere blended with silk gives silk a downy softness. The yarn produced by this luscious marriage weaves and kints like a dream.
Our skeins sizes vary a bit in size, ranging between 90-110grams, with the average skein being 95 grams.
We’ve listed the price for the AVERAGE weight skein. We charge by the gram, so if your skein is a bit lighter, you’ll pay a bit less and if your skein is a bit heavier, you’ll pay a bit more. If you need specific yardage for a project, please let us know in the comments section at check out so we can select the correct skein(s) for you.
