The Cashmere yarn of Laines du Nord, entirely Made in Italy, is made up of 100% cashmere. Cashmere is the noblest of natural yarns and the most luxurious. Wool and cashmere are excellent natural fibers, but cashmere has some characteristics that make it superior to all other fibers: lightness, softness, warmth, durability. In fact, the garments made of cashmere are considerably lighter than the others; they are softer due to the unparalleled elasticity of the fiber; they are very warm because the cashmere fibers tend to shrink on the surface (curling), considerably reducing the passage of cold air; and they are long lasting as the cashmere fibers are longer and hold the structure longer. The production by an internationally certified company is added to the raw material of excellent quality.
It should be noted that cashmere is not twisted but only carded and its fiber is short: these technical characteristics mean that the cashmere yarn is not resistant to traction. The foresight to observe during processing, especially in the start-up phase, is to not "pull" it, to prevent it from breaking.
To make a women's shirt size 42, about 300gr is needed. and for a men's shirt size 48 about 350 / 400gr .. We recommend that you wash the garments by hand or in the washing machine with cold water and the most delicate cycle using neutral detergents. For cashmere it is very useful to put the garments inside mesh bags. It is absolutely not to be centrifuged or wrung out. Dry on a flat surface.
* Do not forget that the display of colors may vary from one screen to another and even the shades may vary from one color bath to another (check the information on the ball of yarn).

ta dal prezzo conveniente rispetto ad altri e sono molto soddisfatta, consegna veloce nonostante le difficolta del periodo, imballaggio sottovuoto che non ha in alcun modo schiacciato il filato che si è subito presentato in tutto il suo splendore una volta aperta la confezione. Mi ha colpito anche la carineria con cui il prodotto è stato accompagnato, segno di cura ed attenzione. Grazie e a presto.
