Undersea Cashmere

February 27, 2009

This is the most luscious cashmere I’ve ever seen, and I’m SO happy with the colour I’ve achieved.

It’s 600 yds, on 3 skeins, and it’s a little heavier than a standard lace weight, but definitely lighter than fingering.

I’m planning on making it into Laminaria, a beautiful shawl published on Knitty.com.  I’m not sure yet whether I will knit it holding this yarn single stranded, for a lighter effect, or double stranded for something more like a DK weight.  I think I’ll swatch it both ways, and see what I like best.

    This was RECYCLED!

    Tell me more: I have a royal blue cashmere sweater (lands’ end) that doesn’t fit DH. It has the ‘good seams,’ but it’s such a fine yarn that I was hesitant to attempt the recycling process.

    Wow, it’s beautiful! It will look lovely in that pattern.
