Reclaimed Cashmere Darning Yarn - Complete Set (69 Colours)

Reclaimed Cashmere Darning Yarn - Complete Set (69 Colours)

PriceFrom £180,00

This stunning cashmere yarn set covers the full colour spectrum - a gorgeous gift for any mender!


It includes 69 different shades* and a massive 690 metres of yarn from bright tones to neutrals. You'd never need to think about sourcing cashmere yarn again; well not for a while anyway!


This high-quality reclaimed cashmere yarn is perfect for general repairs, invisible darning, colourful visible mending or even a spot of knitwear embroidery.


A fine 3-ply yarn which can be split down to a single strand for mending very fine knitwear, or doubled or even tripled up if you require a thicker yarn for your mending project.


Spun and dyed in various luxury textile mills in the U.K and Italy - it's actually leftover surplus yarn from the textile production process and without being rescued it's likely it would end being wasted and sent to landfill.


It contains no added synthetic fibres unlike most darning wool or mending yarns, which are often a mix of wool and polyester/nylon which makes it hard-wearing but sadly it releases micro-plastics in the wash and doesn't biodegrade. We prefer to source pure yarn which helps to reduce our impact on the planet!


Individual shades are presented on a Ministry of Mending card for easy storage.


Each card contains approximately 10 m (33 ft) of yarn.


Every effort has been taken to ensure these photos are an accurate representation of the colours, but since every computer monitor and mobile device is different, we cannot guarantee the colour will be an exact match to what you see online.If you would like to purchase a small sample, then please click here!


Top Tip: If you split this yarn down to a single strand, then I'd recommend running it through some conditioning wax before use.


*Please be aware all these yarns are deadstock yarns sourced from British & Italian mills and therefore over time some yarn shades may be discontinued and new colours introduced. The colour selection you receive may vary slightly to that shown in these photos. If you wish to receive specific colours please contact us prior to purchase.
