The Zig Zag Puff Stitch makes a fabric with alternating straight and zig zag lines. The Zig Zag Puff Stitch would be great for light weight scarves, cover ups or table dressings!
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.
