Sourced and spun entirely in Afghanistan, this 100% cashmere yarn is the ultimate in “feel good” yarn. The yarn is spun by Afghan women from their homes and they receive a fair wage for their labor. As a fair trade product, it not only feels good while you are wearing it, but you can feel good knowing that your purchase is helping someone live a better life.
