A yarn with a great story is one that really speaks to my heart. Cashmere People is a yarn company with an amazing mission: To create earning opportunities for rural women in remote areas of Tajikistan and Afghanistan by helping them process local fibers into high quality yarns and linking them to the global marketplace. The spinners now collaborate with Portfiber (www.portfiber.com) to market their yarn.
When I first learned about this yarn I was 100% on board with its mission. But once I got it in my hands – then the magic really happened. Not only does this yarn support women in remote areas, it is a dream to work with. They are very skilled spinners, the yarn was very even, incredibly soft, and the depth of color is entrancing. I was thrilled to be able to design this shawl with Cashmere People Yarns.
The shawl begins top down and is worked as a semi-circle, with a pretty (but fairly simple) lace motif in the center. This shawl pattern is easily adjustable if you’d like a smaller or larger shawl. Worked in this yarn, it’s a shawl that you can dress up or down, and I’m sure you’ll never want to take off.
